What is Synchronous Communication?

Synchronous communication happens when people interact in real-time. Most meetings include a dedicated time for synchronous communication.

Other examples of synchronous, or "real-time" communication include:

  • Phone calls
  • Bumping into someone and talking to them
  • Dinner conversations
  • Talking to your kids while driving them around
  • Texting back-and-forth with your partner
  • And any other time you spend in active conversation with other people.
