Vonage has recently announced that a new version of their Vonage Mobile app will be coming to the Android platform. This new version of the Vonage Mobile app will only be available to Android users on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Vonage Mobile allows customers to make voice over IP calls using a W-Fi network which can significantly reduce the costs of making international calls.
When asked about the upcoming availability on Sprint and Verizon devices Vonage reps were unsure when those devices would be supported by the new app. While the Vonage reps were unable to offer a timeline for those two networks they did mention that Vonage was looking to expand the product to more devices. Reps would also not comment on the possibility of Verizon’s new deal with Skype being one of the reasons why this new Vonage app is not available on Verizon Wireless devices. This new Vonage app is already available for iPhone OS devices which includes the iPod touch as well as BlackBerry devices.
While Vonage may not be that great of an alternative to long distance carriers for your land lines this app certainly is great news for people that are looking to lower the costs of their international phone bills. As one of the leading VoIP companies around Vonage can offer you great service at an affordable price. Being able to use Vonage’s services over a Wi-Fi network on your mobile device is an excellent addition to any new smartphone. With the increase in popularity of Android devices it makes sense that Vonage would focus on getting a new mobile app available for those devices. With the success they have seen from their iPhone and BlackBerry apps it will be no surprise when the Vonage Mobile app becomes a huge success for Android users as well.
