  • Click on the ‘HearClear Call’ button displayed on the home screen.
  • You will see a list of People.
  • Tap on the person you want to call. This opens their profile.
  • At the top of the profile screen you have options to select a video call (top right) or an audio call (top left). An audio call does not display the video.
  • Tap the ‘People’ button and use the plus symbol at the top.
  • In the ‘search’ box, insert the mobile number or email address of your friend/contact.
NOTE: Your friend/contact must have HearClear installed on their phone to allow you to find them.
  • Go to your phone’s ‘settings’ page and scroll to the HearClear app. Check that the Microphone is enabled. You should tap on the button so the icon is green.
  • If you cannot hear the person you are speaking with, ask them to do the same.

Still not working?
  • Check the volume setting on your iPhone or iPad isn’t on low or off.
  • Check also that you haven’t muted your phone so that it is on ‘silent mode’. To check this, flick the small button on the top left of your iphone, or the volume button on your iPad. An icon will appear at the top of your screen to tell you whether the silent mode is ‘on’ or ‘off’.
  • Also check the person you are speaking with isn’t on ‘silent mode’. You can check with them by using the ‘Chat’ function on the HearClear home screen.

Still having a problem?
  • Check your signal strength. This is indicated by the four ‘bars’ at the top of your screen. The more bars that are filled, the stronger the signal.
  • The strength of the signal can affect the sound you hear. If you have a weak or no signal try moving to a location where the signal is stronger. If you are at home, you should be able to improve the strength of your signal by moving nearer to the WiFi box.

    This is likely to be because you have not enabled ‘notifications’ to be received. You were asked about notifications when you first registered with HearClear but may have checked the ‘no notifications’ box.

    • Notifications allow HearClear to notify you that you have a HearClear call, even if you are using another App on your phone.
    HearClear calls are made between two devices using the app. You will need to be identifiable to your contacts so that they know who is calling them and so that they can add you as a contact on their device

    Currently you will not be able to do this, but in an upcoming version we will add this feature and make it as easy to do as possible!
