Every day there are more and more options to communicate that go way beyond the classic WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Telegram. A perfect example can be found in VEON, the app that makes use of our phone's WiFi connection or data plan to make voice calls, chat, and send videos with voice and images.
Much more than an instant messaging app
We're basically talking about an Android chat app. In fact, even WhatsApp allows us to make voice calls and send multimedia contents other than the typical instant messaging.
The fact is that VEON also offers contents of the likes news, videos, and music. In other words, we're talking about a chat and messaging app that also works like a free information portal.
- Instant messaging app that offers us the possibility to send videos, images, and text.
- Create messaging groups and send collective messages to friends and family.
- Possibility to avoid data surcharges by subscribing to a data plan.
- Option to make voice calls by means of the data connection.
Nobody believes that this kind of application can face up or replace others of the likes of WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. However, it does come along with a few good ideas that enrich the idea of a chat app, such as including a news section with all sorts of information. In turn, it's designed with an appealing and sober interface that improves the user experience.
By the way, to be able to register as a user on this service, apart from downloading the APK file, you'll need to input a phone number that is valid in your country.
