Lumicall 1.13.0 is released! 😀
Through Lumicall, you can make encrypted calls and send messages using open standards. It uses the SIP protocol to inter-operate with other apps and corporate telephone systems.
During the Outreachy Internship period I worked on the following issues :-
- White Labelling – https://project.freertc.org/issues/54
I researched on creating a white label version of Lumicall. Few ideas on how the white label build could be used..
- Existing SIP providers can use white label version of Lumicall to expand their business and launch SIP client. This would provide a one stop shop for them!!
- New SIP clients/developers can use Lumicall white label version to get the underlying working of making encrypted phone calls using SIP protocol, it will help them to focus on other additional functionalities they would like to include.
- Adding Silent Mode Functionality – https://project.freertc.org/issues/55
Since Lumicall is majorly used to make encrypted calls, there was a need to designate quiet times and the phone will not make an audible ringing tone during that time & if the user has multiple SIP accounts, the user can set the silent mode functionality on one of them, maybe, the Work account.

- Adding 9 Patch Image
Using Lumicall, users can send SIP messages across. Just to improve the UI a little, I added a 9 patch image in the message screen. A 9 patch image is created using 9 patch tools and are saved as imagename.9.png . The image will resize itself according to the text length and font size.
