Video telephony is also available between app users. This can only be used by Smart Business Connect and Managed Business Communications customers currently.

For the app to function correctly, you will need to allow the necessary microphone, camera, contacts and call authorisations.

Ensure that your WLAN network is professionally and optimally configured to use the app. If the Access Points are configured incorrectly or not optimally positioned, you may experience quality problems during calls (dropped calls, lack of audio connection, number unobtainable, etc.) If you have poor WLAN reception, switching to the mobile network can improve it.

Check your smartphone to ensure that:

  • Mobile data is switched on.
  • Any energy-saving modes (especially Android) and settings for saving data are switched off.

In many places, the network quality of the WLAN or mobile data network is insufficient for real-time communication. This is reflected in poor voice quality, inaccessibility or dropped calls.

This function is only available for users of the Swisscom services Smart Business Connect and Managed Business Communications..
