What’s New in the 3CXPhone for Android and iOS Clients

Samsung vs AppleWith the release of 3CX Phone System v14 not only have we added cool new features to the PBX, such as the option to deploy 3CX as a Virtual PBX, we have also revamped our iOS client completely and added some new functionalities to our Android client too. Some new features include the advanced use of PUSH technology to wake up the phone and an integrated SIP tunnel which enables 3CXPhone to work more like a regular GSM call.

New Features at a glance:

  • Completely new SIP engine
  • Starts up much faster
  • Auto detects location – No need to set out of office or in office
  • Wakes up phone and allows immediate pick up of call
  • Improved PUSH support – using Apple VoIP Push, 3CX PUSH messages get priority over others.
  • Drastically reduced battery usage
  • Improved reliability and sound quality
  • Inclusion of new call history in the clients
  • Ability to send welcome email from client
  • Unsupported message if a v14 client talks to a v12 PBX
  • Removed DND Button
  • Profiles now are named Available, Away Do Not Distub, Lunch, Business Trip
  • Easier to provision using 1 FQDN

    Why is my phone deregistering if the phone is pushed to the background? I don’t have this issue on version 12. I tested on two android phones and IOS. The rest to the hard phones are permanently registered and are working fine including the trunks.

      @Zwe, Thanks for your question. In v14 when the Android and iOS clients are pushed to the background the 3CXPhone will unregistered after 10 seconds, to save on battery consumption. Now this is where Push comes in. When a call is received, providing push has been configured for Android, 3CXPhone will receive a notification to register and you will be able to take the call from the locked screen. iOS is the same the only difference is that Apple Push is automatically configured when you set up your 3CX Phone System v14. Google Push servers have to be set up and configured manually in the management Console under Settings > Push. When you create extensions users are automatically enabled for Push but if you set up users before your configure Google Push then the 3CXPhone for Android will need to be re-provisioned. Here is the documentation on how to configure Apple and Google Push with 3CXPhone System: http://www.3cx.com/docs/configuring-google-push. For Apple Push you just refer to the firewall configuration settings section: http://www.3cx.com/docs/configuring-apple-push/. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with regarding this. Thank you.
