Singtel launches communications app
Singtel has launched an IP-based app that allows users to make voice and video calls and send instant messages.
Wavee will be available worldwide and can be downloaded from Android Google Play and Apple App Store.
SIngtel claims it is the first carrier to launch an app of this kind in Southeast Asia.
Wavee is said to be able to detect the strength of each user’s network and optimise the call quality for the best experience, and Singtel plans to add this capability to video calls in the future. Users can access unlimited voice calls as long as they are on a data or WiFi connection.
“People are looking for richer, more seamless and personal ways of communicating. With Wavee, we are giving our customers a holistic, end-to-end service,” said Johan Buse, Singtel’s VP for consumer marketing.
