Globe Telecom introduced the first-of-its-kind instant messaging application to iPhone users, the GMESSAGE.
GMESSAGE is an app allowing more users to experience unlimited mobile messaging that supports both instant messaging and text messaging services. Both Globe prepaid and postpaid subscribers can now send both free GMESSAGEs and text messages from one convenient application.
The instant messaging app is now available on the iPhone for FREE via the App Store.
Globe subscribers can send GMESSAGEs to non-GMESSAGE users for only P0.15 per message. Non-GMESSAGE users will receive the message as a text message and replies will be charged with standard SMS rates.
With GMESSAGE, users can share photos, videos, voice notes, and audio files to make conversations more fun and interactive. In addition, users can initiate group chats with up to 25 recipients to expand conversations to more people. Finally, the app also incorporates an innovative technology called “Magic Words” which can detect the context of a conversation and provide easy links to useful and relevant content such as Google Maps directions, a Wikipedia page or a YouTube video.
Unlike over-the-top (OTT) messaging apps such as WhatsApp or Viber, GMESSAGE incorporates SMS as one of its main features. This means being able to experience the benefits of next-generation messaging by sending messages via SMS to friends even if they don’t have a smartphone.
To download GMESSAGE, visit www.glb.ph/GMESSAGE on your handset browser or text GMESSAGE to 8888. Since GMESSAGE requires mobile data connection, subscribers are encouraged to get a Globe PowerSurf or SuperSurf plan for a worry-free mobile messaging experience anytime, anywhere.
