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’re bringing voice filters to VozDigital calls

Posted on 9/20/2016 by Darío Alonso, Product Manager

Yes, you read it right. From today, our customers can make calls with their VozDigital minutes using gnome and troll voice filters. With this new functionality, both voices on the call are filtered, so that both the caller and the receiver will have... a different tone ;)

The filters are now available to all our customers in Argentina, Ecuador, Peru and Spain in the Tuenti app for Android, and we are working to include more filters in future versions of the app. Why make normal calls when you can call using a troll’s voice?

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.

50 minutes of VozDigital chat for 1 euro

Posted on 6/23/2016 by Anna Réti, Product Manager

We want our customers in Spain to be able to call any landline or cell phone number in Spain or abroad anytime they want, which is why we now offer them all the possibility to enjoy VozDigital minutes no matter whether they have an active tariff or not and for half the price it cost until now.

So, we have reduced the price of 50 VozDigital minutes to €1 and it is now available for all our customers, both prepaid and postpaid, whether they have an active tariff or not. Because we don’t want anyone to miss out on the chance to talk.

Any questions? You can find all the info here ;)
