Video calls and voice calls between employees
To call an employee:
- Type the employee's name to the Search bar in Bitrix24 Messenger > click Voice call or Video call:
- Allow Bitrix24 Messenger to access camera and microphone > start conversation.
You can send text messages to the user you are talking to, or send messages to other users while video calling.
Voice and video calls between employees are not recorded.
Create a private group chat and perform a video call to start a video conference.
You can also invite new users to a chat while video calling.
- Allow turn.calls.bitrix24.com (this address is used for calls) access and open port 3478 (TCP and UDP) for STUN and TURN protocols. If peers are not able to establish a direct connection, TURN-server can act as a proxy for RDP connection (UDP ports 16384-32767).
- To perform video calls, you need to have an Internet connection speed depending on the video quality (VP8 codec):
- 720p, 30 fps: 1-2 Mbps
- 360p, 30 fps: 0.5-1 Mbps
- 180p, 30 fps: 0.1-0.5 Mbps
Video quality is changed automatically depending on the connection speed.
Use the formula below to figure out what Internet connection speed you need to have to perform a group video call between employees:
from 0.1 to 2 Mbps * [number of users in a group video call] * 2
- Video conferencing is available for small private groups of up to 24 users (commercial plans) or 12 users (free plan). If there are more than 24 employees (or 12 if you use free plan) in the group, the video call button will be unavailable.
