Android App ‘Nanu’ let Android Users to make free calls over 2G Networks
There are plenty of apps out there that let you make free calls from your mobile device but none of these work well, or not at all, on 2G networks.
Nanu claims to be able to let you call any other Nanu user for free even on 2G networks. You can also call devices which don’t have the Nanu app installed, but those calls are restricted to 15 minutes.
Nanu app supports calls to landline numbers in 41different countries including India and to mobile phones in 9 other countries. The company plans to expand to other countries and platforms too. The website also says that apps for iOS and Windows will be available on play stores later this year and that Nanu app also plans to add a messaging feature.
Nanu claimed on its website -
“Nanu doesn’t need a fast network, so unlike Skype or Viber, it works on 2G and congested networks. In other words, it works anywhere your phone does. Plus Nanu sounds crisper and clearer. As more and more people use Nanu, we will be able to offer more and more free Nanu-to-non-Nanu calls.”
To call, a user has to download and use the Nanu app on their smartphones. As he calls, he will hear a voice advertisement – instead of a ringtone – before the other party is connected.
The app is only available for Android devices, but it should arrive on other platforms soon. Nanu also promised to add text messaging functionality in the future as well.
The Android app is out now on the Google Play store, while an Apple version is expected later this year.
