KakaoTalk’s Free Call Feature Now Available
Kakao Team has added mVoIP service to KakaoTalk! With voice, Ka-Talking has become more exciting than ever!
KakaoTalk mVoip Overview:
Call anyone, anywhere with KakaoTalk’s Free Call feature available on iPhone & Android devices with 3g and WiFi connection. Unfortunately, Korean users will only be able to answer the call from overseas kakaoTalk users. Additionally, voice filter option has been added for users to call friends with hilarious voice. KakaoTalk’s free calling feature was developed by our in-house mVoIP developers from the ground up. We are very proud of the quality of the service, and hope our users love this new feature.
As you’ve seen with our animated emoticon or Plus Friend service, we love to put some little twist in our product. We definitely didn’t want to provide same old-fashioned mVoip services to our users.
The aha moment came when one of our voice developer said, “Hey, I wish I had an attractive voice, because my voice is very creepy on a phone”. Voila, this is how the voice filter option came into place. Believe it or not, his voice sounds more attractive with the ‘Alien’ voice filter : )
How to free call with KakaoTalk:
Click someone you want to call either from KakaoTalk friends list or inside the chat room. The mini profile will pop-up. Press ‘Free Call’ button to call your friend using KakaoTalk’s mVoIP function.
A short message ‘incoming call’ will be sent to a call recipient in a chat room along with call indicator on top of the screen. When the call is connected, call indicator extends to display voice filter option & connection quality.
Please keep in mind that KakaoTalk free call feature will consume mobile data when user is not connected to WiFi. Moreover, mobile devices’ 3G/4G connections may not be stable under some cases. To save on your data plan and enjoy better call quality, we recommend users to use WiFi network to call using KakaoTalk.
