Make Your Direct Code 10x More Useful with Call Notifications

Update October 14, 2016: Gruveo Instant Connect for Chrome now makes browser call notifications even more prominent by making them work in the background as well as adding a proper ringing sound to them.

Direct Gruveo codes are like phone numbers, just a whole lot better. With a direct code, you can receive incoming video and voice calls from anyone without them having to install software or create an account. Tell a customer to enter your @code on Gruveo or go to, and there you are, receiving that as an incoming call.

For direct codes to be truly useful, you need to know when the other party is calling you without keeping the Gruveo tab (or the Gruveo app) open. That’s where our handy incoming call notifications come in. You can enable them in your browser on desktop and Android, or in our iOS app if you have an iPhone or an iPad.

Enabling Browser Notifications

Most modern browsers are capable of showing system notifications. Gruveo takes advantage of this to alert you of an incoming call on your direct code even if you don’t have the Gruveo tab open. Browser notifications work in the web version of Gruveo in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari (limited functionality) on desktop - as well as in Chrome, Firefox and Opera on Android. Continue reading
