General FAQs

Here is a generalist list of frequently asked questions about OpenVoice.

What is OpenVoice?

OpenVoice is a reservation-less audio conferencing service, providing robust web-based account tools that allows user provisioning and audio meeting controls for users to manage small and large audio conferences without operator assistance.

What does reservation-less or ad-hoc conference calling mean?

Reservation-less or ad-hoc conference calling means that you do not need to schedule or reserve bridge capacity for a meeting. Since OpenVoice is a reservation-less conferencing platform, as a meeting organizer you can hold meetings on your telephone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year – without having to plan ahead.

Is there a time limit for how long a conference can be in session?

No. However, please note that the individual maximum call duration is heavily dependent on the various telecommunications carriers that transport the call on your phone. This is especially true for international callers, as their calls may transit through various carriers before reaching the OpenVoice bridge. In general for US Toll calls, our carriers support at least a 6-hour call duration and for US Toll Free calls our carriers support calls at least a 9-hour call duration.

How many participants can I have on my meeting?

The OpenVoice administrator can configure your conference room to support between 25-500 individual callers or lines to join your meeting during account creation.

Is there an operator assisted option available in the OpenVoice Solution?

No. OpenVoice calls are reservation-less and do not require an operator to start or manage a conference call.

What email address are my organizer notification emails coming from?

All your notification emails like welcome emails, preference updates, end of conference notices and end of recording notices come from the following email ID - "OpenVoice (".

How do I cancel my account?

Can I use my OpenVoice dial-in numbers with my GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar account?
