What if you could answer your calls on your tablet or browser before they go to voicemail?
Yelo Phone does exactly that. By using Voice over IP technology
we can transfer calls to any device (Smartphone, Tablet or browser)
and we give users the chance to answer missed calls before they go
So next time you are abroad you don't have to you pay crazy roaming fees, just reject the call and you can answer the call via wi-fi and drastically minimize your costs.
If you leave your phone at home, in a restaurant or if you simply run out of battery you can still answer your calls on your second device.
If users still don't answer the calls they will be notified via email and SMS and they can access their voicemail via email, website or Smartphone/Tablet App. Of course that users can also call the assigned voicemail number and listen to voicemail the traditional way.
All you need to do is set up call forwarding so that when you're not available or missed a call, your calls will be forwarded to Yelo and you can answer your calls on any Yelo device!
If you go through the number verification process it's also possible to call using your own mobile number from another Yelo device or desktop browser!
Install the Android app from the Google Play. If you don't have an Android jump to the next step. Yelo works with any phone, you still can make and receive calls via the website.
Verify your number. This will allow you to make calls via Yelo using your number and will allow us to identify your account when forwarding calls to Yelo. You can do this step with the Android app or via the website. With a subscription you can add more than one number to your account.
Setup Call Forwarding
This step is important if you want to receive calls on Yelo. When call forwarding is configured you'll be able to answer calls on Yelo via Android app or website when you can't answer calls on your device.
How It Works
User receives a call. With conditional forwarding activated if the phone is turned off or out of reach the call is immediately forwarded to Yelo. If the phone is online the phone will ring and if the user doesn't answer the call then the call is forwarded to Yelo.
Yelo will receive the call. If the forwarding number is verified in the system then Yelo will connect the call to the registered devices associated with the account via VoIP
If the user stil is not able to answer the call then Yelo Voicemail will be activated. The calling party will be able to leave a voice message and the user will be notified via SMS, email and Facebook. The voice message can be accessed via email, on the Yelo device, in the browser or by calling to the system the more traditional way.
While transferring calls to any number depends only on the operator, transferring calls to other Yelo devices also relies on Twilio. VoIP numbers are used to transfer calls to other Yelo devices or a Desktop browser. Check if this Twilio service is available for you
