Dialer Phone Number Scanning Feature for Android

We now offer a new Dialer scanning feature for Android devices. You can now scan a phone number by accessing your camera when trying to dial a phone number on the Dialer tab. 

NOTE: you must have the latest Doximity version of 10.56.0 to use the scanning feature


To access the new scanning feature for Dialer:

  • Access the Doximity app
  • Tap on the 'Dialer' tab
  • Tap on the Dialer scanning feature located on the left-hand side above the dial pad 
  • You will be prompted to allow access to your phone's camera
  • Place the scanning bar over the phone number that you are trying to scan
  • Tap the bar containing the phone number that you scanned

You will now see the scanned phone number appear in the Dialer tab.

  • Tap 'Video Call' or 'Phone Call' to start the call

Please note, that the scanner will not be able to decipher a handwritten phone number if the writing is illegible.
