Routing decisions based on performance

Is the Meraki MX able to choose one particular Internet path over another based on 

application layer performance? For example say path A had a Ring Central VOIP MOS score

of 3.5 and path B had 4.4. Can the MX automatically route all the voip out path B?

Great. Thank you. I thought I had spotted that along the evaluation which is now 18 months in the rear view mirror. Most of our branch offices are single homed and I like to make this as an additional argument for dual path.

But be aware that the proposed solution is only for the AutoVPN, not for internet-traffic. Our RingCentral customers are accessing the service directly on the internet and there is no way to control it based on the performance metrics.

Thank you Karstenl for that clarification. The feature is will still be useful for other apps like VDI over VPN. But too bad we can't use it for VOIP too. Fortunately we don't get too many RC problem calls.
