Enhance Your Meetings with Call Control Devices

We've all been secretly yearning for more tech gadgets to complicate our lives, right? Well, hold onto your headsets! Well, fasten your seatbelts, because it's time to introduce you to Eyeson's new function: the call control devices that will sweep you off your feet and make your online meetings even more interesting. 


What Are Call Control Devices?

Call control devices are a game-changer for anyone who relies on virtual meetings and conferences to collaborate with colleagues, clients, or friends. These devices allow you to manage your meetings effortlessly by synchronizing call and mute states between your meeting app and your paired devices. Finally, you can stop the mind-numbing task of switching between screens or applications. What a relief!


Supported Devices

Call Control Devices are supported on popular web browsers like Chrome and Chromium-based browsers, including Edge and Opera. The technology behind these devices relies on the WebHID browser API, which enhances compatibility and ensures a smooth user experience for online meeting solutions and video conferencing.

Now, let's not waste any more time. You're probably dying to know which devices you can actually use as these fantastic call control devices. Hold your breath as we unveil this groundbreaking list:

  • Headsets: Headsets with USB or Bluetooth connectivity that support the WebHID protocol can be used as call control devices for video conferencing and online meeting solutions. These headsets typically have call control buttons for functions like mute and call activation.
  • Microphones: Microphones with built-in call control features and WebHID support can also be considered call control devices for remote work tools and online meeting solutions. These microphones may have buttons for toggling calls and mute states.
  • Speakers: Bluetooth or USB speakers that support WebHID and have call control buttons would qualify as call control devices for video conferencing and online meeting solutions.
  • Bluetooth Earbuds: Some Bluetooth earbuds come with call control functionality, allowing users to control calls and mute states for remote work and virtual meetings. Because reaching for your computer's mute button is so 2010. 
  • Conference Telephones: Don't forget our trusted conference phones! While they may not be the flashy newcomers, they're essential for clear group communication. By pairing them with call control devices, you bridge the gap between old-school reliability and modern convenience, ensuring seamless remote collaboration. 
  • Webcams: In some cases, webcams may have integrated call control buttons or features for video conferencing. Because clearly, controlling your meetings from your webcam is the future.
  • Other Audio Input/Output Devices: Any USB or Bluetooth audio input/output device (such as external sound cards or audio interfaces) with call control features and WebHID support can fall into this category and enhance your remote work tools and online meeting solutions.
