Dialpad web app is available through Google's Chrome browser. This allows you to place calls and send messages via Dialpad through a single web browser tab (no desktop app required!)
Dialpad's web app is just another easy way our Users can access the platform from any device.
Let's take a look at how the Web App works.
Open the web app
To use the web app in Chrome, enter dialpad.com/app and log in using your account credentials.
The standard menu automatically launches, displaying your inbox, contacts, and other fields normally found while using the desktop app.
You can immediately start making calls or sending messages in the Dialpad web app.
Dialpad Progressive Web App
