Earlier this year in January Ringo launched international calling app which delivers low cost calling and works without an internet connection. Now the low-cost calling app has introduced local calling in India.
Ringo users can call any landline or mobile number in the country at just 19 paise per minute. Ringo uses telephone networks instead of phone data or the Internet for a phone call, unlike the other VoIP apps in the market. The company notes that its app can even make calls if the recipient of the call does not have the app installed.
It offers 50 minutes of free talk time to every user who installs the app for the first time, and 50 additional minutes for every friend a user refers to Ringo. Whenever you make a call to recipient you get call from Ringo and then it connects the recipient. In short Ringo uses a unique call flow that connects both the initiator and the recipient of a call via a conference bridge.
You can also earn free credits by downloading other apps from its Offers section. Speaking on the launch, Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and Founder of Ringo, said, “Our vision has been to make calling across the globe simple, seamless and low-cost for the masses. Our local calling service is not only the cheapest in India right now, but it is also free of typical telecom-related hassles such as STD charges and differential pricing. In a country where 3G penetrations is not fairly high throughout, we also have a strong edge over Internet telephony apps, as Ringo calls do not use data, and are comparable in price.” He further added “Our aim is to become a smart, one-stop calling solution for people across the globe, and local calling in India is certainly our biggest step in that direction.”
