I am relatively new to Upwork. A potential client has asked me to have a 3-person video call. How does one do this with the Upwork desktop application?
If you have an interview room in Messages (the client accepted your proposal or you have accepted their invite,) you can have a Voice/Video call with them via Messages even if you don't have a contract yet. You can have a call with multiple people as long as they've joined/been added to that Message room.

Does the upwork video system, for when speaking with clients, have the ability to set up a virtual background without requiring a green screen, for example by being able to upload a photo that will become the background (like zoom permits)?
Zoom does this and it's wonderful. I used it for years until I finally got a decent meeting backgroup (a real life one, even, yes!).
It's also nice (I'm old) that Zoom has that "clear up your face" function.
re: new TOS update and the CURRENT Meeting Functions
Please have a team put up a series of troubleshooting guides so that our poor clients do not have to deal with support for 4 days, thereby holding up the hiring pricess.
All users need a way to test the audio / video functionality OUTSIDE of a meeting. New users will need this for sure. I myself have a plethora of devices for meetings, and I have no idea which ones work on Upwork, and which don't.
Thanks for your suggestions for a way to test and access more information about how to use the Voice/Video feature. I've already shared them with the team for their consideration.
Valeria, this is a second for Pandora's request. Having a test call function is really core functionality for a video call app—I've never seen one without that ability.
