3CX Software Client Update for iOS, Android, and MacOS

    We are pleased to present the new versions of our functional unified communications clients for iOS, Android and Mac OS!

    3CX client for iOS with CallKit integration

    The new 3CX client for iOS has a great opportunity - to manage VoIP calls in the same way as GSM calls - directly from the lock screen. This is done using the Callkit framework, which appeared in iOS 10. VoIP calls through the 3CX client look like GSM calls for the user - they are displayed on the lock screen and in the call history of the iOS device. Thanks to this, the 3CX client is even more integrated into the iOS user interface.

    The new 3CX client for iOS allows you to conveniently switch between GSM and VoIP calls. For example, if you are talking through a 3CX client and at that moment you are receiving a GSM call, you can put the VoIP call on hold. You can also not accept a GSM call, but reject it or send it to voicemail.

    3CX Client Update for MacOS

    Before the holidays, we updated our 3CX client for MacOS! Among the improvements in the client are the support for the G729 voice codec, which is now included in the 3CX management console, and the network error correction that occurred in MacOS Sierra.

    List of major improvements in the client:

    • Support for MacOS Sierra (this requires updating the 3CX server to version V15 SP4)
    • Voice Codec G729
    • Improved client auto-tuning
    • Ability to specify DTMF transfer method in 3CX management console
    • Ability to specify the priority of voice codecs in the 3CX management console

    → The full changelog is available here.

    It makes sense to install the new 3CX client for MacOS if you already have a 3CX V15 SP4 server running:

    1. Go to the 3CX Management Console
    2. In the top menu, click the Updates button, go to the 3CX Clients section and download the client
    3. The server will send update notifications to all system users
    4. The next time you start or restart the client, the user will receive a notification about the availability of the update.
    5. After the consent of the user, the update will be installed automatically.
