Important advances in our pioneer voice over IP calling service

Posted on 3/27/2014 by Paul Iliffe, Product Manager

We were pioneers in adding the possibility of making voice over IP (VoIP) calls to our new Android cell phone application in June 2013 that allowed users to make free calls without consuming voice minutes. Since then, we have been developing the beta phase of this service, and today we are launching a new update in the latest version of our Android application that includes significant improvements to the app's voice calling service. Version 4.3 contains quality improvements, especially in terms of phone call audio and regardless of whether calls are made via a WiFi or 3G network, and calls made to friends and contacts using the Tuenti app are now more stable.

It is important to point out that Tuenti Móvil customers can make these calls using the Tuenti app without consuming cell phone data allowances thanks to Zerolímites, which is completely innovative and exclusive in the cell phone operator market. In addition to making free voice calls using this improved functionality, customers may also navigate the Tuenti website and app for free without using data allowances, even if they have already been consumed.

Another important feature is that as of today, the VoIP service is compatible for the first time with the web (using the Chrome browser), which means that users can make or receive free voice calls on their computer via the Tuenti application.

These improvements require users to update to the latest version of our Android app in order to benefit from its new multiplatform advantages.

Go ahead and update to test the new voice calling service using Android or the Internet, and talk without using minutes. It will soon be available for iPhone as well.
