During a call in Fuze, you can switch easily between Fuze-enabled devices without leaving the call.

For example, if you are on a call using Fuze Desktop and you need to leave your desk while staying on the call, you can switch to Fuze Mobile and continue the call without interruption.

To use this feature, your organization must have a Fuze service level that allows multiple devices. Check with your administrator if you are unsure of your current service level.
