Step 3: Enabling HD Calling

Empowering you to work from anywhere takes strong call quality. That’s why we suggest enabling HD calling when you’re connected to a trusted, strong WiFi connection (like at the Office, airport, or even at home).

Better yet, consider opting for Choose before each call, giving you the flexibility to pick the best option for wherever work takes you.

IMG_1521.PNG

Receive Notifications For

By default, these options are toggled ON, but you can always opt to turn one or all three off.

Advanced Settings: SMS Forwarding & Ring this Device

By default, this is turned off to avoid having you receive notifications twice (once from the app and once from your native device).

SMS Forwarding is only available with carrier service. By default, Ring this Device is toggled ON to ensure that you’re receiving incoming calls to your forwarding device. If you want, you can opt to turn this off so only calls to your other connected devices ring.

Keep in mind that this is not the same thing as enabling Do Not Disturb from your profile drop-down.
