Telefónica’s Digital business unit has launched a new all-in-one communication application called TU Me. The free app is available worldwide and is the first service from Telefónica Digital that’s been launched directly to consumers.
TU Me users can send and receive text messages, make calls, leave voice messages, share photos and share their location over WiFi or via their mobile network. Each interaction is stored in a conversation ‘timeline’.
The app is currently available for Apple iOS users with an Android version due for release soon.
Stephen Shurrock, Chief Commercial Officer at Telefónica Digital, said “We’ve seen the growing popularity of communications apps on smartphones but we believe we’ve gone one better with TU Me using our knowledge and insights of how people use their devices. TU Me puts all your communications needs into one place, for free, and is a great way for people to stay in touch with those close to them. It’s also a testament to the innovation, speed and agility within Telefónica Digital.”
Telefonica’s TU brand will be used to launch a number of enhanced communications services in the future.
