Click to Call for Google Chrome™
Click on any phone number on any web page and your phone dials the number!
What is it?
The Click To Call (C2C) plugin is an add-on for Chrome that allows you to click to call phone numbers or SIP addresses within your browser. This plugin will also notify you of incoming calls with real-time pop-ups containing caller-ID information.
How does it work?
Outbound click to call
- See phone number.
- Click phone number.
This Chrome add-on locates telephone numbers in web pages and converts them to Click-to-Call links on the fly.
When you roll over a phone number with your mouse, you will see the number change to a link similar to this:
When you click on one of these links, a call is placed to your OnSIP SIP address. When you answer, the call is patched through to the telephone number.
You need an OnSIP account to use this Chrome add-on and standard calling rates will apply.
Inbound calls: browser notifications
- You are at your computer, browsing the web with Chrome
- Caller dials your phone number
- Your phone rings, and you see a browser pop-up with Caller ID
When you are viewing Chrome and receive a call to your OnSIP extension, a browser pop-up like the following will appear:
If you are a Highrise user and have identified this number belonging to a customer, a browser pop-up like the following will appear:
