Vonage Introduces Mobile Enhancements with the Launch of Apple iOS 10

Mobile app calls are more seamlessly integrated with iOS for a better, more native calling experience

Vonage is among the first cloud communications providers to take advantage of the new iOS 10 CallKit capabilities, allowing VoIP apps, like the Vonage Essentials mobile app, to work just like a native call.

In addition, Vonage's integration with Apple's Siri provides Vonage business customers with a convenient, hands-free way to access the Vonage app to make business calls. The customer simply gives Siri a voice command that initiates a phone call from the app to any contact.

Omar Javaid, Chief Product Officer for Vonage, commented, "iOS 10 provides a much better user experience for VoIP apps. Vonage customers can initiate and receive calls using the app exactly the same way they do using their iPhone today. With the new upgrades, there is no difference in the calling experience when you use the Vonage app than when you use the standard iPhone functionality for calls."

Mr. Javaid continued, "The new functionality of the Vonage app enabled by the iOS 10 upgrades will allow for a more robust mobile calling experience for business customers, and is particularly useful for those who want to make business calls from their iPhones using their business identities, while taking advantage of all of the features and functionality that come with their Vonage service. We're very excited about these advancements in iOS 10 and we know our customers will love them."
