    Call Automatically When a Page Is load

    Is there a way to direct a web page to a phone call? When someone press on the page url it will call automatically to a phone number from mobile devices.

    @kc8823,

     

    I think you may require a VoIP gateway to directly make calls...

    Maybe you can check out various VoIP providers and get a code snippet...

    I am using the below provider for personal calls!, Have a look;

    @webdev_man,

     

    Your solution will work on mobile devices, but may not on desktops...

    If the user or caller does not have a VoIP application, the Tel protocol is not invoked...

    There must be an application to make or receive calls on your system...

     

    Hope this helps

    Smiley LOL And back with more horrible advice.... it won't work on desktop? Because VoIP? Ahahaha come on man, this "mentor" should be banned from posting. You obviously can't call on desktop without an app, but the link will work.... even if they DO have VoIP all you need is a CALLING app and the link works everywhere.

    @webdev_man,

     

    Looks like both of us are on the same page...

    You also realized that the user must have a calling app to initiate the call...

    By integrating a VoIP application!, the user can directly call...

    The VoIP application will create a peer-to-peer call...

    Except we're not really. Smiley LOL

    The OP asked for an auto call when page loads... if we were both on target, I would think you'd suggest an auto call on load is most likely a bad idea for spam. That said, I provided a snippet of how to add the call to a link, so users can call when they arrive at the page without getting spammed constantly by bots.

    VoIP has nothing to do with how to make a phone number clickable, or auto dial 🙂
