New simpler and more visual contact profile design on Tuenti

Posted on 2/08/2017 by Vanessa Hoya, Product Manager

Today, we at Tuenti are introducing a new phonebook contact profile design for customers in Argentina, Ecuador, Spain and Peru that gives greater importance to the information that our customers share with their contacts.

So, in addition to introducing a much simpler and more visual design, the customer can access photos shared with that contact via chat and the history of their saved calls from a single screen, as well as inviting them to download the app if they don't already have it in order to enjoy unlimited Tuenti to Tuenti calls and chat.

And, as always, there will still be shortcuts from the contact profile to chat and calls, both on Tuenti (free) and VozDigital.

This design is now available on Android and on the web, and will soon be available on iOS devices as well.

New design, new experience: focusing on communication

Posted on 3/02/2016 by Paul Iliffe, VP Product

.Tuenti has changed a great deal in recent years: we have gone from being Spain's largest social network to become a digital operator which is a standard-bearer for innovation, is always at the service of our customers to facilitate and enhance their communication, and which currently operates in 5 countries.

The reason for this change lies in the fact that the profile of our users has evolved dramatically during this time, with the priority now on direct communication between people - mainly through VozDigital - but also on the other communication features and products that we offer.

In our mission to enhance people's communications, we wanted to look at things from another perspective and we started working on a new version of the application with three very clear objectives:

  • We wanted an application that was made to communicate and which placed a special focus on calling;
  • An application that needed no explanation and was easy and natural for users,
  • That would involve a unique experience, both for our customers and users.

This process made us completely rethink the structure of the information and all the elements that make up our app, and led us to approach the development of the new version as if it were a completely new application, where we should only include things that comply with the principles we had defined. And so, after great teamwork involving the whole company, today we present the new version of our new application!

As part of this revamp, this new version of the app enables our users to reminisce about old times by offering the ability to create a video with the most popular photos from their .Tuenti experience which they can share on social networks. In addition, we provide the option to download all the photos in a ZIP file sorted by folders, one of the most requested features.

What's more, we are giving away 50 free VozDigital minutes so that all those users can get to know the company's new reality. Without needing to change operator or become a .Tuenti client, anyone can have their phone number in the cloud, in an app, so that you can use it on any device (phone, computer or tablet) to make calls to national and international landlines and cell phones, even without your SIM card and without GSM coverage (via a WiFi network). Whichever operator you're with.

Update the .Tuenti app and you're done!

Moments with More Activity and Multi-Photo Chat Messages in Tuenti Version 3.6 for iPhone

Posted on 10/31/2013 by Bernardo Reynolds, Product Manager

Tuenti users with iPhone can now update their app and enjoy new features such as Moments with more activity in real-time and the ability to send multi-photo messages through chat.

Moments with more activity in real-time allow users to see who is checking out the same Moment they are, at the same time. This feature, which is also available for Tuenti users with Android, makes communication among users even more constant, and they won’t have to go back to the side menu in order to see notifications for friends’ Moments, making the whole experience even more real.

Additionally, with version 3.6 of Tuenti for iPhone, users can no share up to 10 photos at a time in their chat conversations, whether they’re having one-on-one conversations or within a group.

And, as an extra for Tuenti Móvil clients, this new version includes notifications related to account management: alerts for new voicemail messages, top-ups for credit and data, etc. Everything is in the very same app, simplifying the user and client experience because Tuenti loves simple! ;)

Launching Tuenti Version 3.0 for Android, with New Photo and Notification Functionalities

Posted on 7/16/2013 by Jose del Corral, Product Manager

Today, we present the new version of the Tuenti app for Android that is full of new functionalities. Version 3.0 includes, among others, a new functionality for sharing photos quickly and simply on Tuenti directly from your smartphone’s photo gallery, as well as photo albums created through group chat conversations and a new and more simplified notifications center.

  • In this version, we’re easing photo sharing on the platform. With version 3.0 for Android, users can share their images directly from their device’s photo gallery by selecting the photos and tapping the option to Share on Tuenti. Fast and easy!
  • Users can now access photo albums from the “Group info” within the chat, with all of the images shared among friends and contacts within that chat.
  • Additionally, the notifications center has been simplified, combining the People tab with the Activity tab which means that all notifications (people, Moments, wall comments, etc.) are found in one location.
  • SMS invitations are now free, meaning that users can invite phonebook contacts to Tuenti through SMS without charge.

We’re still working hard to provide high-quality products and services with added value. We’ll be back with more news soon!
