Make and Receive VoIP Calls

You can make and receive Voice Over IP (VoIP) calls in Apollo. This allows you to use your computer instead of a phone for calls. Follow the sections below to learn how to make and receive VoIP calls.

Dialer Availability

Please note, the dialer is available for customers in the Professional and Custom pricing plans. If you have a Professional plan, you may make and receive phone calls only within the United States. Apollo provides 10 minutes of dialing time per dollar spent on your Professional subscription. If you have a Custom plan, you may make calls within the United States and internationally (pending approval). Apollo provides 3 minutes of international dialing time per dollar spent on your Custom subscription.

Apollo counts your talk time by the second, not by the minute. If you talk for 32 seconds, Apollo does not round up to the closest minute—we count 32 seconds, just as it should be.

Managing Minutes Like a Boss

To keep track of your team’s talk time, click Settings and then click Manage Plan. Scroll to Dialer Usage and voila! Your monthly minutes are there waiting to be admired.

Answer (Incoming) Calls With VoIP

If you have configured VoIP calls in Apollo, when someone calls your Apollo phone number, a dialer overlay displays at the bottom of your browser.

Receive VoIP Calls

Please note, you must first configure VoIP and set up an Apollo phone number to receive calls in your browser. For more information about how to get an Apollo phone number and configure VoIP, refer to the "Configure the Dialer" article.

Configure Your System Sound First

Apollo uses your default system sound settings for call audio. You may not be able to hear or speak to a caller if your sound settings are not configured properly. If you would like to use a different output or input device for calls, make sure to switch your system sound settings to the appropriate sources.

After you complete a VoIP call, Apollo launches a modal to log information about it. If you have enabled call recording, you will see a recording of your phone call in the top-left corner of the modal.

Call Recording

If you would like to remove the recording from the call log, click the Delete button.
