I remember seeing an interview where one of the devs said that if your in a group and your group member is far away, they can still participate in conversations via a holovid call.

anyone know anything about this? how and where it can be done?

If you're far away from your group and they initiate a group conversation, an option pops up that allows you to participate via holo-vid.

AFAIK, it doesn't work in Heroic Missions or Flashpoints, but if you're grouping up for side quests, you can jump in via holovid.

Yup and I've done it. If you are grouped for say a heroic, next time don't run back to the quest giver when the heroic is done, instead wait for the invitation to join via holo.
Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space...

Worked for a heroic for me, one of the ones on Dromund Kaas.

its an option in the settings to allow group conversations i believe its under the grouping heading in prefrances. it has to be turned on for it to work.
These Queue things you speak of... are they a rare drop? i have never seen one. - Darth_Fu
The problem isn't the question, but rather understanding the answer.
The truth is only what you believe it to be... until proven otherwise.
