Ayoba has released a new version of its Android application to celebrate its second anniversary and 5.5 million users milestone.
According to Head of Ayoba, Nolan Wolff, users have been asking us to support Voice over Internet Protocol calls pretty much since day one.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to answer their call with this new release,” Wolff added.
The African messaging app has also released ‘ayoba lite’, which allows users to message contacts from within a standard web browser, either from their desktop or a compatible smartphone.
Ayoba recently assured users of the mobile app that messages sent in the phone can’t be read by anyone or shared by any third party.
According to Business Insiders Africa, the app features peer-to-peer private messaging, which is end-to-end encrypted.
The report added, “User’s contacts and location are only available, if explicitly shared by the account owner. Users can feel confident that their private data will remain private, and is treated with utmost care and respect.
“This allows us to provide much the same core functionality as our full-featured Android app, but contained within a standard web browser. This makes ayoba accessible to a very broad audience and we expect to reach an entirely untapped market segment.”
