Re: Click to dial from browser

Let me try to animate this thread: I don't exclusivly call my Google Contacts. Many phone numbers I want to call reside in my CRM in the browser or just on any Web page. Wouldn't it be exquisite to be able and just click (maybe first highlight) or right click any phone number and have AirDroid call it? I read the description of the premium features: "Dial phone numbers remotely from the web and talk on the phone". Does this mean what I dream of and I don't get it working or does it "just" mean the standard dialing function? There must be a difference, as it is treated a premium function. But I already can make phone calls in basic (free) version. What's the point there?
Thank you.

Re: Click to dial from browser

I think the real need is for airdroid to handle the tel: url. There are lots of browser addons that parse phone numbers on web pages and do a click-to-dial using the tel: url. Airdroid does not need to do web page parsing. It just has to process click-to-dial requests. Not all calls are made from the contact phone book. Many of my calls are to people in my CRM app for instance.

Yep, this is how I would use it. Just as many other people, once the word gets out. I have found no app that does this and it seems to be a simple thing to build. I am sure this would make your app much more popular.

Hi,
You can make call on web。airdroid.com. Click "Contacts">>cilck the contact you want to make call>>click the phone call button. But you need to pick up the phone to talk and listen.

I just purchased premium because of that feature promise. Now i find out that even with premium it is not possible to click "tel:" or "callto:" links and have airdroid call the number via my phone. Very disappointing. As OP said, please explain what that premium feature would be. I can´t see why i should extend premium otherwise.

Best regards

Re: Click to dial from browser

Either I'm missing something, or the Windows based program has no means of dialing a number outside of the contact list. I've been using the web.airdroid.com because it has that ability.

It seems the design of the windows program seems to assume anyone you might call is someone on your contacts list. I use this as a means of streamlining office work, and being able to control my Anrdoid from my PC helps. However, a vast majority of my calls are not on my contacts list, so I'm stuck using the website. Not a complaint really, just makes the PC program far less useful.

Oh, and I second the request for context elements in browsers. To be able to highlight a number, right click, and call would be beautiful.

Thanks for a great product!

Re: Click to dial from browser

The click-to-dial handling with tel: links really needs to happen. I just payed for premium to get that "call from web" only to find it doesnt handle tel: links from web-pages.
We use a custom web-based CRM system combined with G Suite. In our small country all the offerings for systems that can handle this is "you have to buy Skype for business". If Airdroid could handle the tel: links, we would probably buy it for our entire enterprise just for that feature alone. Yes, there are other apps, like Myphoneexplorer that could, but only for Android. We have a byod policy and a mix of iPhones and androids. Airdroid would be perfect if it only could be the default protocol-handler for tel: in windows.
