  • Fixed an issue where property tags were not syncing on contacts.

New contact sharing settings and improvements (OpenPhone for Web)

 

New

  

In the past, whenever someone on your team would create a new contact, OpenPhone would default to keeping that contact private. But we've heard from workspace owners that they'd like the opposite: to make new contacts shared by default.

So today, we're giving you that option:

  • Workspace owners and admins can now set sharing defaults for new contacts added to their workspace. New contacts can be shared with the entire workspace, select phone numbers, or even specific individuals.

  • Defaults will apply to contacts created in OpenPhone or synced from Google or CSV imports. Contacts synced from your phone's address book will remain private by default (though you can always share those manually using the "bulk share" option in the contacts section).

  • We've also made usability improvements to both individual and bulk contact sharing.

We've released a new version of OpenPhone for Android which adds some functionality and fixes a few issues. Here's what's changed:

  • Started displaying country codes (e.g. +44) for all non-US and Canadian phone numbers.

  • Added support for downloading attachments.

  • Started displaying sender name and number in group messages.

  • Fixed a bug where the app would return to the home screen if your phone was rotated.

  • Fixed a bug where your proximity sensor would stay active while on a call if OpenPhone was running in the background.

  • Fixed a bug where OpenPhone would stay in the foreground after rejecting a call.

  • Fixed a bug where date properties could not be saved on contact cards.

  • Other small fixes and improvements.

Improvements to our HubSpot integration

 

Improvement

  

We've made a small (but significant!) improvement to our HubSpot integration:

  • Call and text activity would previously fail to log if OpenPhone was unable to match a custom activity type to your HubSpot instance. Now, rather than fail, OpenPhone will log all your call and text activities without a custom activity type until the two fields match exactly.

This is just one part of a larger project to improve the stability of HubSpot contact syncing and activity logging. Stay tuned for more!

There’s plenty to get excited about, so let’s get into the nitty-gritty:

  • With a faster and more responsive UI, OpenPhone for Android is now the snappy and refined experience you’ve come to expect.

  • Reliability was another major focus for this rebuild. Rest assured—calling and texting work just like they should.

  • Starting today, you can expect a much more consistent experience with your notifications. If you get a call or text, you'll know.

  • Even better call quality. With this rebuild, we’ve made improvements to ensure you can hear—and be heard on—every call.

  • As we wrap up our rebuild, we’ll switch to working on feature parity. The best is yet to come.

The all-new OpenPhone for Android is available now

We tied this release off with a bow and shipped it off to the Google Play store this morning. It might take a few days to reach your device, but you can look forward to it soon!

New on iOS: A big heap of updates and quality of life improvements ✨

 

New

 

 

Golly, we sure do ship a lot. Hopefully you're not getting tired of these, because today's update is chock-full of goodness for our friends on iOS.

What's new

  • Call transfers got a big overhaul. Now you can select -any- number in your workspace and even see their names and symbols. ezgif-4-b8218ca1c3e7.gif

  • We integrated with Siri so you can use commands like "Hey Siri, call Jordan with OpenPhone." I can't wait to hear from you.

  • Long-press any OpenPhone notification to see some handy quick actions. Fewer steps mean faster responses.

  • Visiting the Activity tab now clears the red dot from your OpenPhone icon. Don't worry—blue 'unread' dots won't clear until you actually tap in.

  • Now you can have recent calls from OpenPhone appear alongside regular calls in the "Recents" tab of your "Phone" app. Check settings for that.

  • You can enable or disable international calls and automatic call recording directly from your phone number settings.

  • Long-press any phone number in any app to find the new "OpenPhone 📞" option. That's right—you can now make OpenPhone calls from anywhere!

Bug fixes

  • We stopped adding a string of random characters to your copied-and-pasted links. That was my idea. Sorry.
