First steps

On this page you will find some helpful information on how to make successful calls with Jabber.

Dial via Jabber – Contacts

  1. In the Jabber search field, search for the name of the person you want to call, for example, Meier. You can also enter first and last name in the search field, for example Carl Meier.

  2. You can now select your audio output device under Speaker. Similarly, under Microphone you can select your audio input device.
