Have you ever missed a voice notification to join a conference bridge?
Do you find it frustrating to manually dial into a conference and enter a bridge number?
Have you ever incurred long distances charges to call into a conference?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then read on! We’re adding a new feature to the xMatters mobile app that means you’ll never have to experience any of these issues again.
This feature is available now from the App store for iOS (v.3.1), and will be available in September for Android (v.2.5).
Call Me to join a conference
It’s now easier than ever to join a conference using the xMatters mobile app. When you select to join a conference bridge from the app, you’ll be given the option to enter a phone number to have xMatters call you to join the conference. Just enter your phone number, tap ‘Call Me‘, and then standby for an incoming call from xMatters:
To make it even easier to join a bridge, the app will remember your phone number and auto-fill the phone number field the next time you use this feature.
No more long distance charges
Since xMatters is calling you to join the bridge, you’ll no longer have to worry about being charged long distance for dialing in. Standard rates will still apply when xMatters dials the number provided.
How to enable the Call Me functionality

Note: The Call Me functionality only works with xMatters hosted conference bridges.
