Orange has launched a free communication app for Apple devices, allowing users to make free high-definition calls, send texts and create personalised voicemail.
Libon has launched in 95 countries, including the UK, and will be available for Android users from early next year. The HD calls can only be made between Libon users. Other features include converting voice messages to text. All contacts, conversations and message are saved in the cloud.
Users can also opt for a premium version of the service, which costs £1.99 per month. It offers one hour of international calls to 31 countries, as well as unlimited customised greetings, full-length transcription of all voicemail messages and unlimited stores and email copies of all voicemail.
Orange is the latest operator to develop its own so-called over the top service. Earlier this year, Telefonica launched its own app, called Tu Me.
