Softphone Software Review vol. 7 — Blink


Seventh part of our review of the best and top rated softphones, we are getting closer and closer to the first round number.

Today we welcome Blink for Windows. The latest available version available on the official site is dated February 2019 year. Looks a bit obsolete, especially in comparison with versions for Mac (2021) and Linux (2022). By the way, in June 2022 Softphone.Pro, another hero of this review, delivered two releases at once — 4.10 and 4.11.

However, we shall not count the chickens before they're hatched. Let's better come proceed to the test and remind that today our chickens are not Bria, Zoiper, 3CX, Linphone or Ground Wire — but Blink vs Softphone.Pro.



Comparison criteria Softphone.Pro 4.11 Blink 3.2.0
🛈    Ergonomics / 2 clicks interface very good good
🛈    Headset compatibility very good n/a
🛈    Designed for any size teams very good good
🛈    Provisioning + security very good n/a
🛈    Integration with CRM and web services very good good
🛈    MS Excel and Google Sheets integration very good good
🛈    Click-to-call aka click-to-dial support very good good
🛈    BLF indication very good n/a
🛈    20+ reports yes n/a
🛈    SIP accounts supported 32 n/a
🛈    Notifications very good very good
🛈    Installer size / footprint 19 / 33 Mb 68 / 134
🛈    Price comparable comparable


The final decision is always up to you, we just summarize. Blink is going on but it seems the developer is focused mostly on Mac and Linux; if your team uses Windows there are a number of more up-to-day solutions. Softphone.Pro is just the kind of — leaner, well-designed, and more reporting.
