Each person has to be using the application for the free calls to work and calls can be placed on Wi-Fi or 3G networks. The free messages promise to be as easy-to-use as any SMS messaging system.
The application will also convert voice messages into text messages in English, French, or Spanish. All of the contacts, conversations, and messages conducted using the application are synchronized and saved to the cloud. The application also supports the sharing of photographs via the Photo Gallery. The application supports Android version 2.2 and up if the device has a minimum screen resolution of at least HVGA.[via Engadget]
