Play command

The Play command plays an audio file (local or downloaded from URL) when an API extension call is in progress. It is also used to play sound to chosen parties of the conversation (caller, callee or all).

<Play> command example usage:

It is widely used in IVR-s playing pre-recorded sounds or when a client's call is transferred and the company plays music to the client till the phone is picked up by the support staff. It is also used to play a sound file during a conversation for example if one of the parties are low in telephone credits it could say: 'You have 1 dollar left in your phone account. Please recharge it as soon as possible!'

CallChanged, RecordCompleted

More things to know:

  • If the Play command is set to repeat mode then it will never step to the next command.
  • If you play the file from an URL link, the 1st attempt will be slow since Ozeki Phone System needs to download it to local before playing. After it's downloaded every other attempt will be smooth and fast.
