Call Monitoring

Updated: 4/19/2019 1:29 AM

Call Monitoring lets you join a call from any phone to listen, whisper to the monitored user, or barge in to have a three-way call. Cost is $20.00* per month per account.

  • Super Users/Administrators can add the service, specify who can monitor, and audit monitoring sessions.
  • A PIN, assigned by the Super User/Administrator, is required to monitor calls. Users can change their PIN.

You cannot monitor a Virtual Extension because a device is not assigned.

*Call Monitoring is included in the Vonage Best calling plan.
