In 2013, we integrated the mobile operator service with the best social communications app in the market for the first time. We're ringing in the new year with plans to continue innovating and revolutionizing mobile communication as only Tuenti can.

Merry Christmas! Happy 2014!

New Chat Features in the New Version of Tuenti for iPhone

Posted on 11/25/2013 by Bernardo Reynolds, Product Manager

Here at Tuenti, we’re always working hard and launching new features for our apps. That’s why today we’re presenting version 3.7 for iPhone which is full of new features: public group chats, voice message, sound effects, and sticky notifications.

Since one of the most common reasons for using Tuenti is to meet new people, we’ve created public group chats, which give users an easy way to do so. This is a brand new new feature that allows registered Tuenti users that have common interests to chat and share, while still having the same privacy model in place. 

This new chat model, in beta phase, lets users create group chats that are shared as Moments and are integrated into the feed so that the creator’s friends can see and join them instantly. Just like our regular group chats, these can contain up to 75 participants, and the administrator can moderate and modify them.

We’ve also included voice messages and exclusive Tuenti sound effects that users can send through chat (kiss, laughter, happy birthday, etc.). Now, communication among friends and contacts will be even more personal.

This new version also comes with improved (“sticky”) notifications that provide a notifications history so that users can go back to them whenever they wish to, and they can be muted or deleted.

We believe that all of these updates allow for a communication among users that is simpler and more dynamic.  If you’d like to check out them, download or update the app and start taking advantage of all the new things we’ve added.

Tuenti for Android, Going Even Further

Posted on 11/22/2013 by Bernardo Reynolds, Product Manager

Tuenti 4.0 for Android is available in the Play Store starting today. It’s even better than before, because this version comes with a lot of new features including public group chats, multi-photo sharing in chat, and Sticky Notifications, among others.

One of the biggest reasons that people use Tuenti is to meet new people. That’s why we’ve created a brand new way to do so: through public group chats in which users can chat with other registered users that they share interests with, while maintaining Tuenti’s privacy model. Each chat group can contain up to 75 participants and will have an administrator responsible for managing it, able to ban participants as well as change the group chat photo and description.

Version 4.0 allows users to create these chat groups (in Beta phase), and they will be published on Tuenti as Moments. They will be completely integrated into the feed, allowing the creator’s friends to join as well. These chat groups can also be shared externally on other platforms or through email via a link. Take a look at other possible uses for this new feature.

With this new version, users can now share up to 10 photos at a time within individual and group chat conversations just like iPhone users. Additionally, users can now check their Sticky notifications (history) so they don’t miss out on anything. The Tuenti app for Android now goes even further. It’s time to update! ;)

Presenting our App for Windows 8.1

Posted on 11/15/2013 by Jose Lorenzo, Engineering Manager

In April, we launched the Tuenti app for Windows Phone, updated to version 1.7, and today we’re announcing the arrival of our Windows 8.1 app to the Windows Store. Starting today, all of our users who have Windows 8.1 can get the app that comes with a design and browsing experience that is totally aligned with the new Microsoft operating system.

We’ve adapted our app to Windows 8 by unifying the user experience in order to take advantage of touch-screen and personalization tools of the Windows 8.1 operating system, integrating Tuenti’s features such as chat, the feed, photo albums, notifications, and popular photos. Additionally, in the live tile of the device - tablets, PCs, convertibles, and other compatible devices- users will receive real-time notifications for their most recent chat conversations on Tuenti. Security and privacy will never be a problem because data sent from one device to another is encrypted.

Time to go to the Windows store and download the Tuenti app ;)
