Using the announcement function on the FRITZ!Fon

You can also use your FRITZ!Fon as a receiver for internal announcements. To do so, make an internal call to the FRITZ!Fon with a different telephone connected to the FRITZ!Box. Then, make your announcement. Your announcement is then played directly over the FRITZ!Fon's speaker.

How to establish the connection to the FRITZ!Fon for the announcement depends on the telephone that is used. With a FRITZ!Fon, you can use the telephone's menu or a key command to establish the connection. If you are using a different telephone, you can only use a key command to establish the connection.
