Android, Android Transfer

So you’re in the middle of an important phone call on your Android device and suddenly realize that you need to transfer it to someone else? Don’t worry, Android has got you covered! In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to transfer an ongoing call on your Android device.

Step 1: Put the Call on Hold

In order to transfer a call, you first need to put it on hold. To do this, simply tap the Hold button on your screen. The person on the other end of the call will be put on hold and their audio will be muted.

Step 2: Open the Dialer

Next, open the dialer app on your Android device. You can usually find it by tapping the Phone icon on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 3: Dial the Number

In the dialer app, enter the phone number of the person you want to transfer the call to. You can either type in their number manually or select it from your contacts list by tapping the Contacts button.


If you want to transfer the call to another person in your contact list, make sure that their contact information includes a valid phone number.

Step 4: Initiate Call Transfer

Once you have entered or selected the desired phone number, look for a Merge, Add Call, or similar option on your screen. This option may vary depending on your device’s manufacturer or Android version.

  • If you see a Merge option, tap it to transfer the ongoing call to the new number. The two calls will be merged, and you can hang up to exit the call.
  • If you see an Add Call option, tap it and select the contact you want to add to the ongoing call.

    After they answer, inform them that you would like to transfer the call and then tap the Merge button. The three calls will be merged, and you can hang up to exit the call.

Step 5: Verify Call Transfer

To ensure that the call has been successfully transferred, speak with the person who received the call and confirm that they can hear both parties clearly. Once you have verified this, you can end your participation in the call by hanging up.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to transfer an ongoing call on your Android device.
