Ooma enhances mobile calling for its popular home phone service
Updated iOS, Android app extends home phone experience to mobile devices
PALO ALTO, CA - Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Ooma®, Inc., the leader in smart home and business communication systems, is updating its Ooma Mobile HD app for iOS and Android today with new features that bring the full Ooma Telo home phone experience and international calling plans to mobile devices.
With the new version of the Ooma Mobile HD app for iOS, now compatible with iOS 8, users can receive calls as well as make calls. Users can configure inbound calls to ring their home phone, mobile app, and/or an alternate number. This gives users full access to their home phone service and calling plans at any time on-the-go.
The Ooma Mobile HD app for Android currently offers outbound calling only, but has been revamped with a fresh interface and top features from the Ooma iOS app.
“We’re taking a big step forward in making mobile devices a useful and convenient extension of our home phone service,” said Dennis Peng, vice president of product management at Ooma. “Our iOS app makes it possible for Ooma Telo users to answer calls on the go and to call anyone from anywhere in the world through their existing Ooma service, rather than using up pricey extra minutes through their mobile service providers.”
With the Ooma Mobile HD app:
• Ooma to Ooma calling is free and always in crystal-clear HD Voice
• Ooma Premier customers have unlimited minutes for inbound and outbound calling to U.S. and Canada
• Ooma Basic customers pay only 1.9¢ per minute for domestic calls
For people trying to stay connected to friends and loved ones in other countries, time zone differences and high per-minute rates can be a big communication hurdle. The Ooma World plan, which offers unlimited calling to 61 countries for only $17.99 a month, can be accessed from subscribers’ home phones and through the Ooma Mobile HD app – making it easy and affordable to stay connected to anyone, anywhere at anytime from any location.
The new version of the Ooma Mobile HD app is free to Ooma subscribers and available now in the iTunes App Store and Google Play store.
