How to make a phone call using the Aircall Phone applications

  • Open the Aircall Phone application of your choice.

  • Click on the Keypad section located at the very bottom of the Phone application.

  • If you are assigned to multiple numbers, select a line to call from, if different from the default.

  • Use the keyboard to type out the country code.
