Zipwhip’s Call Notification Feature


It makes sense, really. We already allow you to send and receive messages from the web. Now, you can also see when someone is calling you. If you miss a phone call, no sweat. You will be notified on your desktop or tablet via a text message. Call or text, Zipwhip now has you covered thanks to our desktop app and some hack-a-day ingenuity.

We’ve been considering the feature for a while but it hasn’t been a priority on our product roadmap. What took it to production was a marathon session by one of our senior engineers during our once monthly hacking sessions, when all employees are encouraged to work on a project of their choice that will improve our service. All desktop app users will notice that this feature has been integrated.

Check out the 16 second video above to see how the service works. We think you’ll like it. Ready to sign up for our service? Head to

  1. How do you DISABLE this service? This sounds like a nice feature but it pollutes my Zipwhip feed with meaningless SMS messages, which makes finding people I actually text, more difficult. I’ve look everywhere within the app for a way to make these call notifications stop. No luck. 😦
