The battle filter comes to VozDigital calls

Posted on 12/01/2016 by Darío Alonso, Product Manager

It's not that we want to encourage our customers to have warlike conversations over the phone, but they have been crying out for it! So, after the troll, the gnome, the bird or terror, today we are launching the battle filter for customers with Android devices.

Since we introduced the filters on VozDigital calls last September, you have not stopped using them. In fact, Fridays and Saturdays are the top days to call using the filters and the calls last longer than traditional calls because they are much more fun: in Peru calls last 46% longer and in Spain they last up to 80% longer.

At the end of October, the terror filter was by far the most popular, accounting for 65% of all filters used on the day of greatest use, followed by the bird (22%) and the gnome (9%).

We will be back soon with more news. In the meantime, get calling! ;)

We facilitate and simplify the registration and access process in our app

Posted on 10/21/2016 by Vanessa Hoya, Product Manager

These last few days we have given a little love to our registration process via our app in iOS and Android devices. The result is a new flow of registration and an easier starting of sessions, and a little cooler too, I have to admit.

Now our users and clients can register and access their Tuenti account by using their social profiles from Twitter, Google and Facebook, besides your email, as usual. Anywhere, anytime. Just register with the latest version of our app ;)

We have fully integrated our VozDigital with iOS 10

Posted on 9/14/2016 by Darío Alonso, Product Manager

Fans of Apple have been waiting for this moment with almost as much impatience as us. Since Apple presented its new gadgets and features on September 7th we’ve been dying to announce this new version of the Tuenti application for iOS and today we’re celebrating the fact it’s already available in the App Store!

The new version includes important improvements to the call experience on the app, which will making calling with Tuenti much easier and more accessible. Check it out:

The integration of Tuenti with Apple’s operating system is complete, so from now on calls made via the app will appear as recorded in the particular cell phone’s history as Tuenti Audio and, to return them, the same channel can be used.

Now you can also make VozDigital calls and maintain the natural iOS experience: from the contact information button in your call history, simply click on the contact for 1 second and you will be given the ‘how to call’ option. If you have run out of minutes, you can call via the app, without using minutes.

You can also call contacts saved in your contact list as favorites directly from Tuenti’s VozDigital widget without having to open the app!

Furthermore, incoming calls that reach you via Tuenti can now be answered when your device is blocked, without having to enter your unlock code. If, during a traditional GSM call, you receive a call via VozDigital, you can reject or accept this call by putting the first on hold.

We can’t wait for our clients to update the operating system on their devices and the Tuenti application so they can make calls using the minutes of their rate more naturally and easily.

Two years talking with VozDigital go a long way

Posted on 7/08/2016 by Darío Alonso, Product Manager

It’s the anniversary of VozDigital! On a day like today in 2014 we presented an internationally ground-breaking way of making phone calls to fixed landline and mobile numbers in Spain using the Tuenti app without the receiver needing to have the application installed. After a couple of years developing and iterating the product in order to improve its quality and innovate the features we offer our clients, we now want to take advantage of this special occasion to share some of the facts that we find most interesting.

A total of 42 million minutes have been spoken: this equals playing 15 million times El Tigeraso ("Lo tengo todo papi") song. Just to give you an idea, this totals around 55,000 minutes a day.
As we mentioned, we presented the product in Spain in 2014, but it wasn’t until 2015 and 2016 that we started offering this service in Peru and Argentina, respectively. In fact, there are already 370,000 clients around the world making phone calls with VozDigital.

In 2015, we presented our clients in Spain with the possibility of making phone calls to international fixed landline and mobile phone numbers in 40 destinations. Since then, a total of 43,000 clients have used VozDigital to make calls to other countries, and more than 10,000 do so on a regular basis. These calls have lasted a total of -drum roll please- 5.5 million minutes, representing 13.75% of the total, global level, VozDigital pie of calls -quite a big slice!

Historically, Italy is the country where most phone calls are made frequently exceeding 4000 minutes per day. Morocco, Peru, China and Germany complete the top five destinations that are called the most.
Our greatest day of all times, a true record, was last June 10 when a total of 36,502 clients called using VozDigital. We don’t mean to exaggerate, but that’s as if every person in Teruel called in a single day ;) And as for the day with the most minutes spoken, the record belongs to last May 30 with 130,000, equaling 90.3 days of blah, blah, blah… come on, three months!

Oh! And let’s not forget the so-called impossible calls that we have “made possible” because they were received in any device our clients had the app connected to. We have made possible the 2% of calls that could not have been possible if they had not been received through the application; these calls would have been lost. This totals around 700,000 minutes of joy for all of us.

Much more than a chat

Posted on 6/15/2016 by Luis Javier Álvarez, Product Manager

We want communication among our clients and users to be as easy and fluid as possible. For this reason, today we are presenting a small but great change to the chat screen of our app, which places SMS, photo, audio message, location and sound sticker sending options at the forefront.
These functions have always been available on our app but we know that by giving the gnome filter, the evil laugh sticker or the sending of free SMS messages from the app a little more importance we are making everything easier. That’s why our clients will now have all of these options within the reach “of their finger”, without having to open a new window to use one of them.

Has Spain scored at Euro 2016? Click directly on the sound button to send a “Goal!” Lost your group of friends at a festival? Send them your location so you can meet up.

This new feature on the chat is now available on the latest version of the Tuenti app on Android and on the website version. In the coming weeks it will also be available on iOS. In the meantime, here’s an example of what it will look like on an iPhone 6 ;)
