Zoom Announces Zoom Phone Launch in Australia and the United Kingdom
Zoom Video Communications, Inc. has this week announced the general availability of its Zoom Phone cloud phone service in Australia and the United Kingdom. It also released several enhancements for the service including multi-language prompt support, Office 365 and Gmail integrations, ability to multitask on mobile without dropping the call, on-hold music management, and others.
Zoom Phone is a cloud phone system available as an add-on to Zoom’s platform. Support for inbound and outbound calling through the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and seamlessly integrated telephony features enable customers to replace their existing PBX solution and consolidate all of their business communication and collaboration requirements into their favourite video platform. Zoom Phone offers features such as Bring Your Own Carrier (allows customers to bring existing PSTN SIP trunks to the Zoom platform for easy international and phased deployments), the ability to escalate voice calls to video with a single click, and contact center partnerships with Five9 and Twilio.
Now available for Zoom Phone:
- Availability in Australia and the United Kingdom: Zoom Phone now supports local phone numbers and PSTN access with new Metered and Unlimited Calling Plans in Australia and the United Kingdom. This expanded geographic coverage allows Zoom customers to migrate away from their in-country legacy phone systems to consolidate business communications into Zoom’s all-in-one video-first communications platform.
- Multilingual prompts: Simplify multi-site administration with configurable Zoom Phone prompt language preferences for international users and office locations in a single global account. Supported prompt languages include American English, British English, Canadian French, and Spanish.
- Microsoft Office 365 and Gmail contact integrations: With out-of-the-box integrations to Office365 and Gmail, Zoom Phone users can easily import, view, and click-to-dial contacts from these popular email platforms in the Zoom desktop and mobile apps.
- Ability to multitask on Zoom’s mobile app: Zoom Phone users can now access Zoom chat, contacts, and meetings features while on a Zoom Phone call.
- Human Interface Device (HID) command support: Zoom desktop and mobile apps now support call answer and mute/unmute of Zoom Phone calls from your preferred Bluetooth device.
- On-hold music management: Zoom Phone administrators can customise on-hold music preferences for their account.
“Zoom Phone has been easy to deploy, straightforward for our team to use, and rock-solid from a reliability standpoint. For our half-remote team, it’s perfect,” said Shane Scott, head of process for Illumin8.
“Zoom continues its bold foray into the UCaaS market announcing the availability of its successful Zoom Phone product in Australia and the UK,” said Elka Popova, global VP of connected work research at Frost & Sullivan. "The innovative provider reports impressive adoption of Zoom Phone in its domestic US market driven by the rapid launch of important new features, deep integrations, and flexible deployment options that promptly address key concerns and objectives of various stakeholders including IT staff, business leaders, and end-users."
“Zoom Phone feature enhancements and global expansion have been a top priority for us at Zoom as we focus on building out a world-class phone system. We’re excited to announce that we will be extending native Zoom Phone PSTN service in Australia and the United Kingdom,” said Oded Gal, head of product management for Zoom. “Our Zoom Phone service will provide leading-edge features that will give more flexibility and control to our valued customers.”
