Please add apple shortcuts for make call voice or video

Please add apple shortcuts for make call voice or video using Siri shortcut. And because I don’t want link my phone number to linphone I want the message to stop showing all the time when I open linphone app.
Fix iPhone XS Max where is the menu on top is to close to the clock. Is difficult to select the menu on top left.
Thanks for make linphone. I’m using as my smart doorbell using linphone python on raspberry pi.

Awesome SIP client. But often - audio volume is low.

This is the best client in terms of voice quality. The only major issue I have with it - there is no option of audio volume preamplification. Often you can barely hear the person on the other side when you are in a somewhat noisy environment. If there would be configurable preamplification - I would give 5 stars!
