Dialpad is available through Google's Chrome browser on laptops and desktops, courtesy of our web app.
It allows you to access Dialpad without needing to install the desktop app. You're able to make calls and send messages while also still taking advantage of other capabilities through a single web browser tab. Dialpad's web app is just another way that our users can access the platform from any device.
Let's take a look at the Dialpad web app and how notifications are delivered.
Open the Web App
From anywhere in Chrome, enter dialpad.com/app and log in using your account credentials.
It will automatically launch the standard menu that displays your inbox, contacts, and any other fields normally found while using the desktop app.
You can immediately start making calls or sending messages in the Dialpad web app.
If you're outside the Dialpad web app's tab, Chrome will display a notification alerting you of any incoming messages or calls.
Select the notification and the Dialpad web app will open. Message notifications open the conversation thread view automatically, and call notifications require you to select Answer before the call begins.
You'll need to allow Chrome to display Dialpad's notifications. To do this, go to Settings > Site Settings > Dialpad > Notifications > Allow and refresh the web app.
