3CX Phone System v12.5 Beta 2 Brings New & Improved Features

We are pleased to announce that the second beta release of 3CX Phone System v12.5 is now available for download. Based on your feedback, this release offers new and improved features, including the flexibility to configure your own ports and support for Htek IP phones.

Flexibility to Configure your own Ports

Following your feedback from the release of 3CX Phone System v12.5 Beta, we have implemented a change that will give you the flexibility to configure your own HTTP and HTTPS port numbers. Note that a change in ports requires the Welcome Email to be resent to all 3CXPhone users. They will then need to click on the attached provisioning file to re-provision their 3CXPhone!

Introducing Htek IP Phones

htek phones

Htek IP phones are now included in our list of supported phones and can be deployed in a matter of minutes using our ‘Plug and Play’ provisioning feature. Htek provides reliable feature-rich phones at a cost effective price.

Microsoft Exchange Calendar Integration

3CX Phone System can now monitor your status in Outlook and automatically change the status of your extension. Schedule an appointment and set your “Show As” status to either “Working Elsewhere” or “Out Of Office”. When the appointment time comes, your extension status will automatically change to show that you are away from your desk. This feature is available in the PRO edition only.

New VoIP Providers Added

The list of new VoIP providers is growing! We’ve added Deutsche Telekom Call & Surf VoIP Provider, Swisscom Business Connect, and Time Warner Cable – with even more to be announced in the final version of 12.5.
