Question
Dear Jonathan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smartphone
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speakerphone
http://www.polycom.co.in/products-services...ing-phones.html

Do Smartphones have the features of a Speakerphone which allow video / audio conferencing ?.

As a example instead of using a Speakerphone, a Company wants to interview candidate/s using a Smartphone device and do video / audio conferencing call with the potential candidate.

Is this possible with a Smartphone Device ?.

Thanks & Regards.

Answer
Hi Prashant

This is a bit off-topic but I'll answer it anyway.

Most smartphones and even some feature phones have a speaker function. I use an app on my Android phone called 'In Call Recorder' that allows me to record interviews for later transcription -- I upload them to my Google Drive then I can open them in VLC.

When it comes to Video Conferencing, you may be limited by the bandwidth, but if you have a good internet connection, Skype is also an option. There are programs available for recording Skype conversations as well

Hope this helped
