Firstly let me say I'm a happy Bria desktop user. I've used it for about 3 years, since Bria 3. I've recently switched to a Samsung Chromebook Plus (which is awesome and has Android apps) - seems to have some difficulties transitioning between 4G and Wifi as I frequently have to call the same number twice and use the "Call Without Audio" fix wizard to resolve the probem, which it does.
Now with the 5.1.3 version it works flawlessly. Incoming calls also works with no NAT emulation and STUN enabled settings. Proper audio levels, absolutely no audio latency. Excellent audio quality and rock solid operation. Customer support also helpful. It worth every penny!
I commented yesterday asking where the hell the old version of the app was (found it in my library but it's EOL I guess) anyway I ended up getting a year subscription to this one this morning. I really like the push feature so I can leave the app closed until a call actually comes through, saves battery. Looking forward to app improvements though because as far as I can tell this is mostly a reskin of the existing app but hopefully we'll see frequent updates and improvements (please investigate the Bluetooth issues ASAP. With headsets and Bluetooth in the car, major issue.) How exactly does the push work? Is the Bria server signed in to my VoIP (which I don't mind) but then when a call comes how does my phone connect at the same time as the push server? Meaning my SIP account only allows 1 connection. Is the call forwarded from an American server to me? (Does this affect latency, call quality etc) or does the push server disconnect from my sip to allow my phone to connect..but then wouldn't the call drop before I'm able to answer it? Interested to learn more about the technicals behind it.
I actually was looking for the original app that I used to have. I couldn't find it loaded this and found out this was subscription-based. Boy was I bent. You folks came back almost immediately after I reviewed it and told me what I needed to do to solve the problem. Therefore I'm giving you 5 stars for customer service. It's nice to have my old app back.
Im ending my .99 cents per month subscription. CONS: Bluetooth completely unstable. Once you bluetooth disconnects and reconnects it will never utilize it again until you unpair and repair you device. If you lucky. and complete inconvenience while driving since it wont use bluetooth. CONS: when dialing out the history shows you CID and not the number you dialed out. Everything else worked fine. Sorry 2 stars at best.
Terrible. Worked fine during the trial period but once the subscription started it kept unregistering my number. Completely unreliable.
