Being Put on Hold Isn't So Bad ... When the Music is Rockin;

Posted by Tristan Barnum on Oct 29, 2009
Here’s the thing about Voxox. It has so many features that sometimes the little things, customizable pieces such as ringback tones, get overlooked. That’s why this week I’m giving some love to an oft-overlooked, but never maligned customizable feature: hold music.

That’s right, hold music, the very definition of distraction. Making sure the person you are putting on the back burner for a second isn’t thinking about having been put on said burner in the first place, I mean-- ever spent 45 seconds with pure silence? Feels like 45 minutes, but put a little hold music to it and Voila! it’s not so bad. There are exceptions to the rule of course, for example, if the hold music is talk radio, dentist commercials, or country music. With Voxox however, that can all change.

To customize your own hold music all you have to do is go to settings/hold music/upload a file. Keep in mind that you can customize this for each group of contacts, or even upload different tracks for individual contacts. Only takes a minute or two to set up, and a minute or two until you start putting your friends on hold just for fun (not very nice, but you should do it anyway). The people I’ll be putting on hold will be hearing the song “Still Waiting” from my favorite band The Greyboy Allstars -- what will yours be hearing?”
