What is Call Announce?

Distinguish personal from business calls

Call Announce, also known as Call Whisper, is a feature that identifies which inbound number your customer has dialled, as well as offering your customer’s name. An automated message is played to you specifying the number the caller has dialled, so you know which of your Virtual Numbers they are trying to reach. You choose whether to answer the call or redirect it, giving you freedom to manage your calls efficiently, and avoid wasted time.

For an additional cost you can have a Play Announcement that announces the offer they are calling about.

Why use Call Announce?

Technology that makes your job easier

Back to work-life balance

With Call Announce, you know every time a call is coming from your dedicated inbound call numbers. You can now decide if you wish to answer the call or send it to voicemail.

Get creative with inbound calls

Manage multiple businesses

Ideal for multiple businesses with different inbound numbers. Call Announce helps you easily identify which business the call is coming from so you can answer it accordingly.

Invest in marketing that works

You can dedicate one number to your marketing campaigns and get reports showcasing which campaigns brought the calls in. Sales figures are easy to analyse, and the data is much more accurate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What number will display for incoming calls?

The calling party number will display on your phone handset. The ‘whisper’ lets you know it’s a business call, but still allows you to capture your customer’s phone number to make callbacks easy.

How long can the whisper or message be?

We don’t recommend making the announce any longer than a couple of seconds.


Can I have different call whisper message for different numbers?

Yes, but a new announcement feature is needed for each different greeting you want to hear.


Premium Feature

Keypress to Answer
You can now decide what to do with a call

A message announces whether your call is coming from any of your virtual numbers, or whether it’s a personal call. You can either take the call yourself by pressing any key to answer, or let it go to a personal or business voicemail. You can also divert it to another phone or your business partner by adding Call Overflow to your call plan. Keypress to Answer has a lot in common with Call Announce, the main difference being you only answer your call if you choose to press any key on your phone.
