Telefónica has announced the launch of Tu Me, which is free application that allows users to communicate and share information through a smartphone. For now, it is only available on iPhone, but soon will be available on Android devices.
You can find and download it for free download on the Apple App Store.
This service focused directly to consumers. This is the first time that Telefónica offers a product worldwide and not only in countries where it operates. The application is only available on English.
The communications director of Telefonica, Jamie Finn, said: “Digital Phone is in London” and therefore “think in English.”
Users can exchange text messages, make free VoIP calls, leave voice messages and share photos. However as the sending of videos is not included unlike WhatsApp, the service suffers a major flaw.
The service can be used free on iPhones worldwide, regardless of network operator and operates both through a mobile data plan or Wi-Fi.
It is shocking that a service that holds out the prospect of being “a comprehensive communicator all in one” is not available for other mobile operating systems. In this sense, Finn has confirmed that the company is working on the Android version. It’s already being tested and scheduled for launch in the coming weeks.
Anybody can send an invitation to a friend. You should enter your email next to the contact number on the app. TU Me offers a community-based customer service – there is a forum for asking questions and getting answers.
