    This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

    This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.

    The onincoming property of the Telephony interface specifies an event listener to receive incoming events; these indicate when a new call is arriving.


    myTelephony.onincoming = function() { ... };

    These events are of type CallEvent.


    // Telephony object
    var tel = navigator.mozTelephony;
    // Receive a call
    tel.onincoming = function(e) {
      var incomingCall =;
      // Answer the call
