Adding Files to the Announcement Repository

You can upload an existing file to the Nextiva system using the Announcement Repository. Once your announcement has been created and saved as a .wav file, you are welcome to upload it to your account by following the instructions below.


To upload a recorded file, you must follow these formatting rules:

  • PCM Uncompressed (sometimes called µ-Law)
  • .wav file type
  • 8 or 16 Bit
  • 8000 HZ
  • Mono
  • Also, please note files larger than 2MB may not upload.

NOTE: These files require specific formatting. For assistance formatting a file or uploading to the Announcement Repository, contact Nextiva Support.

This is the only file format accepted within the Nextiva system. There are many audio file converters available for free online. You are also able to record custom greetings via the Nextiva phone system. For information, please click here.
