Usage

Setup

import RNCallKeep from 'react-native-callkeep';

const options = {
  ios: {
    appName: 'My app name',
  },
  android: {
    alertTitle: 'Permissions required',
    alertDescription: 'This application needs to access your phone accounts',
    cancelButton: 'Cancel',
    okButton: 'ok',
    imageName: 'phone_account_icon',
    additionalPermissions: [PermissionsAndroid.PERMISSIONS.example]
  }
};

RNCallKeep.setup(options);
  • options: Object
    • ios: object
      • appName: string (required) It will be displayed on system UI when incoming calls received
      • imageName: string (optional) If provided, it will be displayed on system UI during the call
      • ringtoneSound: string (optional) If provided, it will be played when incoming calls received; the system will use the default ringtone if this is not provided
      • maximumCallGroups: string (optional) If provided, the maximum number of call groups supported by this application (Default: 3)
      • maximumCallsPerCallGroup: string (optional) If provided, the maximum number of calls in a single group, used for conferencing (Default: 1, no conferencing)
      • supportsVideo: boolean (optional) If provided, whether or not the application supports video calling (Default: true)
    • android: object
      • alertTitle: string (required) When asking for phone account permission, we need to provider a title for the Alert to ask the user for it
      • alertDescription: string (required) When asking for phone account permission, we need to provider a description for the Alert to ask the user for it
      • cancelButton: string (required) Cancel button label
      • okButton: string (required) Ok button label
      • imageName: string (optional) The image to use in the Android Phone application's native UI for enabling/disabling calling accounts. Should be a 48x48 HDPI grayscale PNG image. Must be in your drawable resources for the parent application. Must be lowercase and underscore (_) characters only, as Java doesn't like capital letters on resources.
      • additionalPermissions: [PermissionsAndroid] (optional) Any additional permissions you'd like your app to have at first launch. Can be used to simplify permission flows and avoid multiple popups to the user at different times.

Methods

setAvailable

This feature is available only on Android.

Tell ConnectionService that the device is ready to make outgoing calls via the native Phone app. If not the user will be stuck in the build UI screen without any actions. Eg: Call it with false when disconnected from the sip client, when your token expires, when your user log out ... Eg: When your used log out (or the connection to your server is broken, etc..), you have to call setAvailable(false) so CallKeep will refuse the call and your user will not be stuck in the native UI.

RNCallKeep.setAvailable(true);
  • active: boolean
    • Tell whether the app is ready or not

setCurrentCallActive

This feature is available only on Android.

Mark the current call as active (eg: when the callee has answered). Necessary to set the correct Android capabilities (hold, mute) once the call is set as active. Be sure to set this only after your call is ready for two way audio; used both incoming and outgoing calls.

RNCallKeep.setCurrentCallActive(uuid);
  • uuid: string
    • The uuid used for startCall or displayIncomingCall

displayIncomingCall

Display system UI for incoming calls

RNCallKeep.displayIncomingCall(uuid, handle, localizedCallerName);
  • uuid: string
    • An uuid that should be stored and re-used for stopCall.
  • handle: string
    • Phone number of the caller
  • localizedCallerName: string (optional)
    • Name of the caller to be displayed on the native UI
  • handleType: string (optional, iOS only)

Use this to tell the sdk a user answered a call from the app UI.

RNCallKeep.answerIncomingCall(uuid)
  • uuid: string
    • The uuid used for startCall or displayIncomingCall

startCall

When you make an outgoing call, tell the device that a call is occurring. The argument list is slightly different on iOS and Android:

iOS:

RNCallKeep.startCall(uuid, handle, contactIdentifier, handleType, hasVideo);

Android:

RNCallKeep.startCall(uuid, handle, contactIdentifier);
  • uuid: string
    • An uuid that should be stored and re-used for stopCall.
  • handle: string
    • Phone number of the callee
  • contactIdentifier: string
    • The identifier is displayed in the native call UI, and is typically the name of the call recipient.
  • handleType: string (optional, iOS only)
    • generic
    • number (default)
    • email
  • hasVideo: boolean (optional, iOS only)
    • false (default)
    • true (you know... when not false)

updateDisplay

This feature is available only on Android.

Sets the Android caller name and number Use this to update the Android display after an outgoing call has started

RNCallKeep.updateDisplay(uuid, displayName, handle)
  • uuid: string
    • The uuid used for startCall or displayIncomingCall
  • displayName: string (optional)
    • Name of the caller to be displayed on the native UI

RNCallKeep.endAllCalls();

rejectCall

When you reject an incoming call.

RNCallKeep.rejectCall(uuid);

reportEndCallWithUUID

Report that the call ended without the user initiating

RNCallKeep.reportEndCallWithUUID(uuid, reason);
  • uuid: string
    • The uuid used for startCall or displayIncomingCall
  • reason: int
    • Reason for the end call
      • Call failed: 1
      • Remote user ended call: 2
      • Remote user did not answer: 3
    • CXCallEndedReason constants used for iOS. DisconnectCause used for Android.
    • Example enum for reasons
    END_CALL_REASON = {
      failed: 1,
      remoteEnded: 2,
      unanswered: 3
    }

setMutedCall

RNCallKeep.checkIfBusy();

checkSpeaker

Checks if the device speaker is on and returns a promise with a boolean value (true if speaker is on, false otherwise). This feature is available only on iOS.

RNCallKeep.checkSpeaker();

supportConnectionService (async)

Tells if ConnectionService is available on the device (returns a boolean).

This feature is available only on Android.

RNCallKeep.supportConnectionService();

hasPhoneAccount (async)

Checks if the user has enabled the phone account for your application. A phone account must be enable to be able to display UI screen on incoming call and make outgoing calls from native Contact application.

Returns a promise of a boolean.

This feature is available only on Android.

await RNCallKeep.hasPhoneAccount();

hasOutgoingCall (async)

This feature is available only on Android, useful when waking up the application for an outgoing call.

When waking up the Android application in background mode (eg: when the application is killed and the user make a call from the native Phone application). The user can hang up the call before your application has been started in background mode, and you can lost the RNCallKeepPerformEndCallAction event.

To be sure that the outgoing call is still here, you can call hasOutgoingCall when you app waken up.

const hasOutgoingCall = await RNCallKeep.hasOutgoingCall();

hasDefaultPhoneAccount

Checks if the user has set a default phone account. If the user has not set a default they will be prompted to do so with an alert.

This is a workaround for an issue affecting some Samsung devices.

This feature is available only on Android.

const options = {
  alertTitle: 'Default not set',
  alertDescription: 'Please set the default phone account'
};

RNCallKeep.hasDefaultPhoneAccount(options);

Events

didReceiveStartCallAction

Device sends this event once it decides the app is allowed to start a call, either from the built-in phone screens (iOS/Recents, Android/Contact), or by the app calling RNCallKeep.startCall.

Try to start your app call action from here (e.g. get credentials of the user by data.handle and/or send INVITE to your SIP server)

Note: on iOS callUUID is not defined as the call is not yet managed by CallKit. You have to generate your own and call startCall.
