Making a Phone Call for non-developers

August 16, 2011

Our Voice API easily let developers dial out 2 numbers, and connect them together for a phone conversation.

For non-developers, don’t be frightened by our use of API. It is actually very easy to use, and I am going to show you how in 3 steps.

 

1) Register Hoiio

If you have not, register for Hoiio first. Don’t worry, it is free.

 

2) Create and get  your app id

Create an app from the developer portal. When you create an app, you will be given an App ID and  Access Token (screenshot).

 

3) Enter URL  into your browser

Gather these 4 pieces of information

  • app_id: From step 2
  • access_token: From step 2
  • dest1: Your phone number
  • dest2: The phone number to call

Assuming your phone number is +6590000000 and you are calling +6590000001, the API will look like the following

https://secure.hoiio.com/open/voice/call?dest1=%2B6590000000&dest2=%2B6590000001&app_id=MY_APP_ID&access_token=MY_ACCESS_TOKEN

Edit the URL with your 4 pieces of information, then copy & paste into your web browser.

Tada~ The phone call will be connected.
