note

Refer to this article for bots created before July 2022.

In this article, you will learn:

  1. How to add and view the phone number currently associated with the Bot?
  2. How to remove phone number mapping from the Bot?

While building voice bots, you must link the bot to some number, so that when the users call on this number, they can have a conversation with the bot.

Once you are ready with a personalized voice bot of yours, the first step towards enabling the voice channel is to assign a number to your voice bot.

note
  • The associated number will be used for making (an outbound) call or receiving (an inbound) call use case.

  • This is chargeable, contact the yellow team before getting started.

  • Phone numbers are a limited resource and are leased from downstream providers at Monthly costs to us. Please ensure that only the required count of the phone number is being added to the Bot.
