Phone call from a web browser Hero

Make phone calls on your web browser

Wish you could make calls from Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and more? Dialpad’s click-to-call from browser feature lets you make calls directly inside your web browser—there’s no need to download a separate app. Sign up for a trial to get started with a virtual phone number in minutes!

Making and receiving calls straight from your browser, simplified

How much easier would it be if instead of copy-and-pasting numbers from your browser to your phone or an app, you could simply click on a phone number and call from your browser?

WebRTC is the open-source HTML framework that makes this possible, allowing you to make VoIP calls from your web browser. And, unlike many other VoIP providers, Dialpad’s unified communications solution has WebRTC built right into its platform.

This means that you don’t need to download separate apps to perform web-based VoIP calls. Dialpad has fully browser-based capabilities for the ultimate, streamlined web calling experience.

To make web calls with Dialpad, log into Dialpad from your web browser (you can use the Chrome extension or plugin, Firefox, Microsoft Edge—you name it). From there, you can use the click-to-call functionality to make instant outbound calls.

Say, for example, you see a call button in a client’s email signature or on a company’s web page. Instead of having to dial that number into a different device, you can click on the phone number to instantly make a call. It really is that simple!

Dialpad gives you more than just phone calls. You can also have video meetings and send instant + SMS/MMS messages from your computer or mobile phone—or just use a web browser, of course!

FAQS about calling from a browser

How does web calling work?

Web calling works using WebRTC technology. WebRTC (which stands for Web Real-Time Communication) is an open-source HTML5 specification that is compatible with pretty much all of the world’s most-used web browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari.

WebRTC enables real-time communications through a web browser. These communications are known as web calls, which are essentially browser-based VoIP calls.

What is VoIP? VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a technology that lets you make calls over an internet connection. It converts audio signals into digital data signals (known as “packets”). These packets are compressed, sent over the internet, decompressed and presented to the receiver in their original audio form.
