Currently only the native phone app is activated on a website or within apps (Android or SFOS) when a callable number is selected.

It would be nice to allow a VOIP alternate app to be selected as default or a selection menue to be shown prior to placing a call or even better allow for phone number copy in the same menue where it says call now.

Hi, I changed the topic of your question so it is easier to understand. I hope I understood it correctly: You have a phone number on a website (usually linked as tel://<number>) and want to choose / set which application should be used to call that number. If I got it wrong, please feel free to restore the original title or change it again.</number>

@ghling thats a clearer way to write the wanted feature, thank you.

Isnt this a mime type as well? I'd think you should be able to map it accordingly?

@tortoisedoc i update with current MIME options, if you know the commands for calling id appreciate if you could share.
