Would you like a new service that will provide free calls to any PC or Mac without a software download, or free calls and SMS between iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, PCs and Macs, how about Facebook integration and calling worldwide phones at extremely competitive rates, which is lower than Skype, if all the above sounds good then please read on about Messagenet.
Messagenet Talk is a new voice-over-internet and texting application for PCs, Macs, iPads, iPod touches and iPhones and goes live, offering free services that reach well beyond what is currently available from Skype, Google Voice, Viber, Line2 and other providers in the VOIP field.
Messagenet Talk enables users to make calls for free to any PC or Mac in the world, without requiring the recipient to register for the service or download any software, which is unlike Unlike Skype and similar services. Callers can also communicate for free with other Messagenet Talk users on their iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, PCs and Macs. With registration, Messagenet Talk lets users add a second phone line to their devices. That line travels with them anywhere in the world, allowing them to eliminate roaming charges. The service enhances the iPad and the iPod touch by enabling them to function as telephones.
All registered Messagenet Talk users can also call and text (SMS) any phone number in the world at rates lower than Skype’s. New smartphone platforms will be supported in the future.
“Our goal was to create a truly universal and simple service that brings together the devices and services that people on the move really want and need,” said Andrea Galli, CEO of Messagenet. “There is a large customer segment out there that understands it should be possible to use the internet to make convenient, high-quality telephone calls at a low cost from anywhere on earth. Messagenet was developed with those people in mind.”
One revolutionary aspect of the service is its ability to place phone calls to people logged onto PCs or Macs who have never downloaded any of the Messagenet software or registered as users. It does so by sending these contacts a link to click on, called a “CallmeLink.” The call begins as soon as the recipient clicks on the link. The caller can send this link via email, instant message, Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Users placing a call from their PC never need to install any user software.
Upon registering for a second phone line and other additional services, users receive 20 minutes of free calling time to destinations in major-market countries. The service delivers high-definition audio and a straightforward fee structure. There is no advertising associated with using Messagenet. Registered users can also send and receive faxes.
“Messagenet is not just an incremental improvement to Skype and the other services out there,” added Galli. “It’s a versatile package that puts VoIP to its best possible use. Our goal has been to make VoIP do everything people want it to do with utmost ease of use in mind.”
On an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or PC that means not having to find and add your contacts’ user names to a buddy list before being able to call them. A user’s existing contact lists will immediately show who can be contacted via Messagenet for free and who can be called on their phone for a very competitive fee, including Facebook friends.
Users can currently obtain a Messagenet phone number from any of 19 countries, including the United States and much of the European Union. The numbers include an advanced voicemail service that can deliver messages by email or on the web. Uk and Italian numbers are free.
All services can be accessed also via www.messagenet.com from any PC or Mac with Windows or Linux with no software installation. For the future, there are plans to make this service available on additional mobile devices.
Unlike most other VoIP services, Messagenet Talk is based on the SIP open standard and can be accessed by registered users from any SIP compliant telephone, software client for PC or mobile device, or PBX.
