Zoom has become one of the most popular communications platforms in the world, and not just for video conferencing, where it’s become a common verb: Let’s Zoom.
Zoom Phone is a complete hosted VoIP service that provides a cloud-based solution for phone calls and associated applications. As simple to use for telephony as Zoom Meetings is for video conferencing, Zoom Phone is particularly useful for integrating hybrid workers, home office workers and other remote workers into your business phone system.

On top of those, Zoom Phone is a SIP-based phone service, which means you can use VoIP phones that run the open SIP communications protocol on it. Being a SIP system opens many possibilities for choice, which is particularly important for small businesses for whom price and reliability are paramount.

Grandstream VoIP Phones balance HD audio quality, rich feature sets and solid build-quality with business-friendly pricing. They put out Zoom Phone compatibility guides for Grandstream GRP260x and GRP261x phones. You’ll need to have the firmware updated to at least the following versions:
- Grandstream GRP260x: 126.96.36.199
