With advancements in cloud communications, connecting with international business contacts and customers is easier than ever. You can now initiate and answer international calls from your computer set-up anywhere in the world using only a reliable internet connection. Here, we will discuss how you can make international calls from your web browser.

How to Make a Phone Call from Your Web Browser

The best way to make a phone call from your browser is with international VoIP. This is a technology that converts your voice into a digital signal that travels over the internet. Most VoIP services will enable you to call anyone who has a phone number – even local, mobile, and long-distance international destinations.

The three most common solutions are Voice over IP software, a web phone, browser extensions, and international callback.

1. Voice Over IP Software

Voice over IP is the most commonly used communication technology to make international calls over the internet. This is because it is much more cost-effective than using a landline. Furthermore, some providers offer virtual features and services that are not available with traditional landlines.

To use VoIP effectively, a broadband (high-speed) internet connection is required, either through a cable modem or other high-speed services such as DSL. The strength of your internet connection will determine the effectiveness of this solution.

In addition, you will need Voice over IP software and an inexpensive microphone. VoIP software usually costs around $25 to $50 per month, depending on the provider. With good and reliable software, it’s easy to make international calls.

Calls can be made through the VoIP service directly, or the service can be integrated to make and receive calls through a CRM or help desk software.

2. Web Phone Dialer or Softphone

A web dialer enables users to make international calls over the internet. It operates largely like a traditional telephone on your computer, where you enter a phone number on a dial pad to initiate a call.

To make browser calls from a web phone dialer, log in to the service provider’s website with your username/PIN and password. After logging in, you have access to a dialer interface. This enables you to make international calls directly from your browser.

Similarly, a Softphone will enable international calling from a computer. Users will need to download an application on their computer and enter their credentials. Upon successful registration, they’ll be able to start making calls. However, you can consider Softphones to be native applications while web dialers work over web browsers.

Web dialers and Softphones will often offer features such as call transfer, call history, and other functionality to improve your international calling experience.

3. Browser Extensions

Some providers offer international calling through click-to-call Chrome extensions that enable you to dial a number from any webpage just by clicking on the phone number. In our experience, we highly recommend using click-to-call to make international calls from a web browser. Companies can enhance the online experiences of their agents using browser extensions.

Honorable Mention: International Callback

International callback is our top recommended way to make international calls if you don’t have a stable high-speed internet connection or if you are in one of the countries where VoIP is prohibited. Callback uses third-party countries, like the United States, to enable low-cost international calls.
