NativeScript Call plugin

Build Status NPM version Downloads Twitter Follow

Dude, I already have a Phone app on my phone..

Sure 😅

But what if your app supports VOIP / WebRTC calls? You'll want to have the operating system pop up the native call dialog, right? That's where this plugin comes in.

Currently iOS only, where we leverage CallKit, which is part of the iOS SDK since iOS 10.


tns plugin add nativescript-call


Check the source in the demo folder, or run it on your own device:

git clone
cd nativescript-call/src
npm i
npm run demo.ios

Usage in NativeScript-Angular and NativeScript-Vue is nothing different from what you'd do in NativeScript-Core.
