The topics in this section describe how an application can create and use a multiparty conversation.

A multiparty conversation consists of a local participant and two or more remote participants. Applications can initiate a multiparty conversation, or can escalate an existing two-party conversation.

Applications can escalate a two-party conversation by joining the conference in the conversation and escalating the conversation using methods exposed by the conference session and conversation:

  1. The application calls the BeginJoinmethod on a ConferenceSessioninstance to join the conference.

  2. The application calls the BeginEscalateToConferencemethod on the conversation.

  3. On successful escalation, the application calls the BeginInviteRemoteParticipantsmethod on the conversation to add new parties.
