The updated app is already live and in use, and is quickly proving popular, with thousands of calls going out across the world every day.
Speaking on the anniversary, Head of ayoba, Nolan Wolff had this to say, ‘Users have been asking us to support VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls pretty much since day one,’
‘And we are extremely pleased to be able to answer their call with this new release. All that’s required is for both parties to upgrade to the latest version of the Android app. This is available immediately from the Google Play Store and our website.’
The messaging app also has it’s web lite version launched. With ‘Ayoba lite’, users can now send messages to their contacts from within a standard web browser, either from their desktop or a compatible smartphone.
According to the company, Ayoba lite is designed as a ‘space saver’ for users who are short on memory space on their device and prefer not to download the app. ‘Ayoba lite has been built as a progressive web app (PWA),’ explains Wolff.
‘This allows us to provide much the same core functionality as our full-featured Android app but contained within a standard web browser. This makes ayoba accessible to a very broad audience and we expect to reach an entirely untapped market segment. The initial Beta version of the PWA is independent of the Android app but it will evolve to allow a user to easily switch between platforms.’
