XOX Berhad has announced the XOX-Voopee, a mobile service application that allows smartphone users to have a second mobile number without the need for an additional phone or SIM card. It functions by using a data network to allow VOIP, SMS and IM for no additional charge.
The service claims that the XOX-Vopee app will allow users to receive international calls while in foreign countries without roaming charges. This comes from the fact that it uses mobile data or an existing WiFi connection.
According to XOX Berhad Group CEO, Mr. Ng Kok Heng, Voopee users can also call and text non-Voopee numbers using a dedicated SIM-free mobile number provided by XOX, and will be charged with local call rates which vary for countries.
XOX-Voopee allows the users to maintain their same Malaysian mobile phone number even they need to switch to an international mobile operator SIM when traveling abroad, everything in the same one smartphone. Jointly developed by a European mobile solution provider and a Malaysian mobile operator, the Voopee service is already in place in several countries such as Singapore, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Malaysia.
Currently the app can be downloaded from Google Play and is also ready for use on iOS platforms. For more information visit www.voopee.com
