The progress can be observed in terms of the flow of voice calling applications on the Android market. Besides these, Viber and Skype also stand out in the market.

Make free calls to any device with Talkatone

Talkatone is a free voice calling app that uses internet connectivity of a device and connects to the other phones located in any part of the world.  However, this may not sound so special since all voice calling apps has this feature; still Talkatone stands out because it offers a special feature through which you can call at any telephone number. Not only this, you can even call to people who have not installed Talkatone to their devices.

Traditional voice calling apps like Skype and Viber require signing in from the user’s end and after that create accounts through which users can connect to others. This major backlog has made it easy for folks to move from traditional apps to becoming loyal users of Talkatone.

Call people from iPhone using Talkatone

This is like a dream come true for iPhone users! Talkatone runs on Google’s free chat and mail service. It actually acts as an intermediary. It gives users the impression that they are making calls using Gmail, but actually, they are making calls by using their iPhone’s internet connection.

Linking Talkatone to Facebook and Google account

While using Talkatone on iPhone version 5, Android 2.2 and iPads, you will be able to connect it with Facebook and once you do this, you will instantly get free bonus credits. This is an amazing feature of Talkatone.
