Don’t Just Talk… Video! Get the New iOS AppMike Evanisko
The new iOS App is here! Tired of the same old phone calls with colleagues and customers? Take it up a notch with video and new rich-chat features. This, together with an upgraded notification system makes the iOS App your one-stop tool for working remotely while adding that extra spark to your business communications.
“Video killed the radio star”…while it hasn’t gone as far as killing voice-only phone conversations just yet, video certainly stepped up communications. The new iOS App enables you to get up close and personal, elevating a chat or call to video, from wherever you are, at the tap of a button. Video calls are supported between the 3CX iOS and Android apps, Web Client and web visitors via Live Chat & Talk.
Initiate a video call by simply tapping on the “Video” option while in an active call!
Wake Up! You Have a Call
The new iOS App relies on Apple’s updated notification service available in 3CX v16 Update 5, to “wake up” your device and push through all important notifications. You can also set the “Accept Push Notifications” option for each of your status profiles, to enable or disable call notifications on demand. Just tap on your top-right status indicator and then on the profile to set the option. Make sure your PBX is on v16 Update 5 and never miss an important call or chat!
- Secure calls by default with tunnel encryption capability in v16 Update 5.
- App switches automatically to the best available WIFI, 3G/4G connection. No need to redial.
- Snap and share photos, documents or even emojis while chatting.
- Move chats to and from Archive, and name group chats for easy reference.
- Website chat: Easily “Take ownership” or “Transfer” web visitor requests.
