Since the November 2021 launch in select geographic regions of the native voice channel in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service, we have been expanding worldwide to satisfy growing customer demand. We are proud to announce that we now support local country regions as well. As of October 2022, the voice support channel is live in the United Kingdom.
Native voice support channel capabilities
The integrated voice channel allows customer service representatives to communicate with customers on the phone to resolve issues. The UK launch includes all the features that the voice channel in omnichannel Customer Service environments supports today.
Self-serve voice support channel with Power Virtual Agents
The UK general availability launch also integrates Power Virtual Agents. Subject matter experts can build conversational interactive voice response (IVR) bots in just a few clicks to help customers quickly self-serve, reducing contact center operation costs. Learn how to configure Power Virtual Agents bots for voice.
Azure direct routing and Microsoft calling plans
The launch of the voice channel in the UK is supported by Azure Communication Services, with Azure direct routing in preview. Learn how you can use the telephony carrier of your choice.
The UK voice support channel is also supported by Microsoft calling plans in public preview. Customers can purchase their own numbers through Azure subscriptions. Check your eligibility and learn how to enable Microsoft calling plans.
