Click-to-Call in All Its Forms

Click-to-call: it ain’t your grandmother’s technology anymore!

When it was first introduced, click-to-call turned phone numbers on web pages into clickable links. If a website visitor clicked on one of those links, a simple voice call was set up between the visitor and the business. Now, the feature enables users to initiate voice calls, video calls, and even group video conference calls. It also works on websites, in emails, and in chat clients (like Slack). And, click-to-call calls can be made on desk phones, smartphones, and even using only a web browser.
