Why not celebrate the holidays with your business by using your RingCentral account as well? Keep customers entertained by getting into the holiday spirit this year. Below you will find a guide on how to change your hold music to something a little friendlier for this holiday season.

You could choose the classic holiday songs, or even better, record your own music! You have the option to come up with an original song, or recruit the help of your sales team to belt out holiday cheer.

Here’ show you can select the music to play to customers while they wait (briefly!) on hold:
