With this announcement, we are also launching our biggest product update yet. It's live on Product Hunt today ⤴️
Here's what's new.
💬 Group messaging
You probably use group chats to talk to friends and family. Now you can communicate in groups on OpenPhone too. Save time and keep everyone on the same page. Plus, it's fun. Especially if you love sending GIFs as much as we do.
👋 Direct messaging
Need help from your team? You can quickly DM your teammates right from the app to make collaboration faster for everyone.
You can now see when your teammates are online or away. Even better - set a custom status to share what you're up to. Maybe you're on a call with a customer or taking your dog for a walk.
If your colleagues aren't on OpenPhone yet, it's a good time to invite them 😉
🌍 International calling and messaging
Many of you requested the ability to call and text people outside of the US & Canada. Good news - you can now call and text anyone in the world, at low rates. Enjoy!
📈 Analytics and reporting
How much time did you spend talking to customers last week? What's the busiest time of the day for your team? Get insight into these and more with OpenPhone analytics. Available as a part of our new $25 per user per month Premium plan.
You can now find any contact, message, activity, or voicemail transcript easily. Try it out, it's pretty magical.
⚡️ Integrations with HubSpot and Zapier
If you use HubSpot CRM, we've got more good news. You can now see a full picture of your customer interactions and sync data between both systems. Get early access ⤴️
And through our Zapier integration, you can connect OpenPhone to thousands of applications you use. Airtable, Typeform, Intercom, Zendesk, you name it. If you hate manual work and want your tools to work nicely together, apply for access here ⤴️
📹 Send videos, GIFs, and all sorts of files
We now support sending all types of files. Try it! If you love sending GIFs like us, type '/giphy' to pick the one that perfectly suits your conversation.
😍 Tons of UX improvements
As you'll be able to tell very quickly, all our OpenPhone applications look much cleaner and more streamlined. And we have a brand new website. There are lots of little details we've worked on to delight you. Here are some of them.
- Give your phone number an emoji symbol to help you and your team distinguish it among all other numbers in your workspace. It's also way more fun!
- Set an outgoing caller ID for your number to control what shows up when you call
- To easily access the command bar no matter where you are in the web & desktop apps, type Command + K
