Popular instant messaging service imo.im just announced that they are rolling out a massive new feature for iOS that will allow their users to make voice calls to other imo users over 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi without using any of their carrier’s limited minutes. The key to this announcement is the promise of quality. While using the imo network, quality will be no less than that of your carrier’s regular network. All too often calls from Internet-based services have less than stellar sound quality, and this results in a less desirable experience.
Of course, you will be using cellular data if you make calls while away from a Wi-Fi network. If you have an unlimited data plan, this will not be an issue and will certainly help you save money on your monthly call times.
With the Meebo instant messaging service going away, imo.im recently emerged as an ideal replacement. Avid Meebo users turned to imo.im and many have not looked back since. Now, this new voice call feature takes imo.im’s already well-made app and makes it even better.
The voice call feature has been available on Android for some time now, and it is great to see them rolling it out to iOS users. The update is available now from the iTunes App Store. Hop on there and let us know in the comments how you like the quality of the calls.
