At Dialpad, we’re constantly striving to provide the best communication and collaboration experience for our customers. Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the Dialpad summer app refresh, a significant update that will take your communication and collaboration experience to the next level.

Hint: There are redesigned call controls, Dark Mode(!), conversation threading in channels, skinny bar, and improved meeting experiences…

Redesigned call controls: More streamlined and intuitive

A seamless calling experience is essential. That’s why we‘ve completely redesigned the call controls in the Dialpad app.

The goal: to provide a user-friendly interface that simplifies call management and makes you more productive. With the new design, calls no longer take over the entire main app view. Instead, call details and controls now reside in a sleek bottom bar, allowing you to access key information and multi-task more easily during a call. The most frequently used controls are prominently displayed, making it easier than ever to navigate and manage your calls with confidence:

Go dark

You’ve been asking for it, and we’ve delivered. Yes, Dark Mode is here to give you a visually appealing option that adds a touch of sophistication to your Dialpad experience on desktop, mobile, and web browser.

Whether you prefer working in low-light environments, want to reduce eye strain, or just want a fresh look, just turn on Dark Mode in your settings:

Conversation threading for more organized and focused collaboration

With conversation threading in channels, you can have more focused and organized discussions within your topic-based channels, now available on desktop, mobile, and web browser.

Create sub-conversations with select team members, keep the main channel feed clutter-free, and ensure that important discussions stay on track:

Skinny bar: Streamlined navigation at your fingertips

Introducing the Skinny Bar in Dialpad, your centralized access point for a seamless navigation experience.
