Soft Phones

A soft phone, short for “software telephone,” is a software-based application that allows users to make voice and video calls over the internet using a computer, or mobile device. 

The Webex desktop client provides the ability to use your computer or mobile device as a phone. A GW phone number is required to use a soft phone.
