Bria Version 4 Download & Setup Guide

The Bria softphone allows you to access your Fastmetrics metricPHONE via software. You can make calls from any computer using the Bria software, just as if you were using your office phone and number. Install Bria on your laptop and take calls anywhere your laptop can get an internet connection. There is also a Bria cell phone app for OS X and Android that allows you to make HD quality calls from your cell phone.

Bria has many features beyond what X-Lite offers including integration with XMPP chat programs, multiple line and multiple account support, Outlook integration, and encryption.
