Virtual Office Barge Service allows enabled Admin extensions to optionally monitor any active call in your 8x8 phone system; "whisper" exclusively to the extension user being monitored (without the other party hearing); and actively join the call, making it a three-way conference.
Individual extensions must be enabled for this service by an account administrator. Barge services are only available with Virtual Office Editions X6 or higher licenses, or X Series X4 or higher licenses. (Only extensions directly associated with a desk phone or softphone may be enabled for this service.)
