For the Webphone to be shown there has to be a regular Phone already set up for your User. Please add a regular Telephone in the Phones section first.
The Webphone will not be displayed to other Administrator Users.

Should you notice any issues with your voice input or output, please perform a check of your computer's sound management options and settings.
