RingCentral’s mobile apps for Apple and Android devices already include one-tap conferencing, inbound and outbound fax support and Business SMS. Now, they’ve been enhanced with even more great features.

Chief among these are the ability to send faxes (or Business SMS messages) to multiple recipients. Simply tap the To field when creating a new fax or SMS and start typing a contact name or number. As soon as you enter one name or number, you can keep typing to enter another.

RingCentral’s iOS and Android apps now allow group filtering, as well. What does this mean? If your organization has multiple contact groups, you can select and deselect group types to make your contact list easier to navigate. See below for an example. I’d uncheck “User Extensions and Others” to show only Department Extensions – a handy feature, as we have more than 200 extensions on our phone system.

(The call quality indicator isn’t new, but it can significantly enhance the experience of using the app to make a VoIP call.)
