New Features 

Softphone - soft launch availability. General Availability to be announced at a later date.

A brand new browser softphone has been developed! This new softphone allows for dialing directly within your browser instead of through an additional application. Users will be able to send, receive, end, and reject calls. Transferring calls will be available via "Transfer Now" and "Consult Transfer" functionality, with the ability to toggle between the two calls.

Contact your Account Representative to get started with the softphone. Once added to your account, there is no need to provision accounts for general users. The softphone is enabled either via bulk import or by enabling the functionality for individual users within User Management. NOTE: The softphone cannot be enabled for an individual user while their Bolt Softphone is enabled. For existing customers, the Bolt Softphone will continue to operate as it does today.
