Call Routing

Call Routing is a feature that lets our users bridge calls between their traditional phone number and a recipient number, while still being able to take advantage of the privacy the Hushed App offers. The recipient caller will only see your Hushed number while the actual call is being made from your traditional phone number. This can be beneficial in situations where your WiFi or data connection is not strong enough to facilitate a data driven call.

To access this feature you must first go to your number settings menu by clicking on the gear icon in the bottom righthand corner of the Hushed app. You can then select "Call Management" from the list of options. From there you must select "Call Routing" to set up call routing. IMG_0066_2.PNG

Once you have entered the "Call Routing" menu, you must toggle "Call Routing" ON. Once this option is toggled to the ON position, a field will open up where you will input the traditional number from which you would like to make the bridged call. This is your traditional phone number, NOT the number of the party you want to receive the call. As soon as you have input your traditional number you can press the "save" button.IMG_0064_2.PNG

You're now ready to make your call. Dial the number you're trying to contact from the app, justas if you were making a standard Hushed call, and you will receive this message showing the call has successfully been routed.

As two calls are being made, the first from your traditional number to your Hushed number and the second from your Hushed number to your recipient's number, both calls will be billed separately. They will however appear as a single call in your device's history to help keep your call history free of any unnecessary clutter. IMG_0065_2.PNG
