HandsFree lets you use your Mac to make phone calls, send/receive text messages*, record conversations, see call lists and more. It couldn’t be any easier. With HandsFree running in the background (with the always available status icon and menu), you don’t have to worry about missing a call or a text message. And we think the best part is that it works with any Bluetooth enabled phone. That’s right, your Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, or iPhone is compatible. It’s like Yosemite’s Continuity except for everyone and with more features.
- Wirelessly connect to your phone using Bluetooth.
- Call using the contacts list, use the dial pad or make a call directly from the Contacts app.
- View incoming SMS (text messages) right on your Mac.
- Send or reply to an SMS from your Mac. (Support for sending text messages requires a non-iOS phone. iPhones do not support sending text messages over Bluetooth. For Android, it requires version 4.4.4 or higher.)
- Quickly see missed, incoming and outgoing call lists.
- Record important calls.
- Text message notifications can now be replied to in-line without having to switch to the app (for phones that support sending over Bluetooth)
- Added warning dialog if Boom 2 is installed
- Connection notifications are now automaticaly hidden after a few seconds
- Using better layout for the information in Missed Call and Connnection notifications
- Using clearer icons in the call dialog to show which device the call audio is being output to (either Mac or phone)
- Issue where it was possible that the app could get stuck downloading the phonebooks on certain phones
- Issue where the app could crash in a specific case when disconnecting from the phonebook server
- Issue where the app could crash on startup
- Issue where the app could crash when showing the rate dialog
- Issue where the call audio output would not be synced between the menu and the call dialog
