It is possible to make this your default setting.

You can normally switch any call to your speakerphone by clicking on the speaker button while you are talking but you can make this an automatic function. If your iPhone speaker for calls is not working you might have forgotten to tap the speaker button during a call. Try it and if everything is ok, just make it your default option.

How to Set iPhone Speakers for Phone Calls by Default

Step 1. When you wish to customize your iOS experience and turn on default speakerphone option you should begin with Settings. Launch it.

Step 2. Select General menu on iOS 8, 8.1 or 8.2 [Apple will soon release iOS 8.3 with new features and options, including emojis, Hey Siri and others].

Step 3. You can now use Accessibility feature that was introduced by Apple to help customers with impairments, but this feature can truly help just anyone and it can also be used for making your speaker enabled as default for all iPhone calls you get.

Step 4. Choose Call Audio Routing. This option is located right underneath Interaction.
