'As most VoIP apps rely on a user’s bandwidth and data connection, we decided to offer our users the ability to toggle between VoIP calls and our popular callback functionality in order to make their connectivity seamless.' - Bryan Hertz, CEO, Telcentris
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
VoxOx®, the first and only free consumer service that unifies all key communication channels — voice, text, chat, video, social media, email, fax and content sharing — into a single user interface, today announced a major update to its free mobile app, VoxOx Call for iPhone®. The new mobile app release provides iPhone users with the option to make high quality VoIP calls over 3G, 4G, LTE, and Wi-Fi networks, as well as an option to use the app’s original callback feature, VoxOx Call Connect, when the data connection is poor or inconsistent to make calls worldwide. The new version of the app also comes with a variety of performance and usability enhancements related to quality of its telephony features, app design and user experience.
Previously, the VoxOx Call mobile app focused on its callback (Call Connect) functionality for making phone calls, which utilized the traditional telephone network to initiate a call at VoxOx’s cheap worldwide calling rates. In the original app, a user would dial a contact’s phone number, and then receive an incoming call with the other party on the line. Instead of the call being routed as an outbound mobile call for which a carrier could charge toll fees, VoxOx turned it into an inbound call, which in most countries is toll free. Now, with the addition of VoIP calling utilizing specialized CODEC (Compression / Decompression technology) and VoxOx’s VoIP cloud-based platform, the VoxOx Call app completes its goal of seamless voice connectivity, as it enables users to place and receive free or low-cost, high-quality calls in virtually any connectivity situation.
“Mobile VoIP offers consumers great benefits, of which perhaps the most significant is the ability to make and receive free or extremely low cost calls worldwide,” said Bryan Hertz, CEO of Telcentris, creator of VoxOx. “As most VoIP apps rely heavily on a user’s bandwidth and data connection, we decided to offer our users the ability to toggle between VoIP calls and our popular callback functionality in order to make their connectivity seamless, regardless of their bandwidth or quality of data service at any given time.”
The VoxOx Call mobile app also comes with a number of extras, including 2-way worldwide SMS with language translation, inbound and outbound faxing, Find Me call forwarding, voicemail transcription, on-call star commands that allow users to create multi-party conference calls, switch devices mid-call, digitally record calls and more. The mobile app integrates seamlessly with the full-featured VoxOx desktop software, allowing calls, texts, and faxes to be sent and received through the same account. New users can sign up for a free VoxOx account within the mobile app interface, and as part of the sign up process, select a free U.S. phone number (or purchase a low cost Canadian number) – the world’s only phone number enabled with voice, SMS, fax, as well as voicemail transcription, all-in-one. The app can be used on any iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. New users who sign up for VoxOx via mobile app can download the VoxOx desktop software without any additional sign ups.
The full list of existing and new app features along with the latest version of the VoxOx Call app for iPhone is available on the App StoreSM. For more information about VoxOx, please visit http://www.voxox.com.
