Popular VoIP provider Vonage this week introduced the Vonage Mobile application for Facebook, a free service that allows Facebook friends to make mobile calls to each other for free.
"The Vonage Mobile app for Facebook is a tangible example of our commitment to deliver extraordinary value and a better communications experience for individuals and their social networks, across broadband-enabled devices, around the world," said Marc Lefar, Chief Executive Office of Vonage Holdings Corp. "This is just the start. In the future we will expand on this service to include a wide range of integrated voice and messaging services that change the way people communicate."
The downloadable app is completely free and is available for iPhone, iPod touch, and Android devices, and coming soon for the iPad. According to Vonage, it works over Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networks in most countries, and only requires logging into the service one time. After that, Facebook contacts are automatically loaded and grouped by friends who can be called for free and those who can only instant message.
