MMW was briefed this week on a new offering called Vodi — a new, “one-of-a-kind” mobile messaging commerce app with a fun, interactive interface that keeps users from around the globe connected.
Those behind Vodi say it offers enhanced messaging, voice calling and video calling applications, combined with unique conversational commerce services, instant mobile eGift delivery and prepaid mobile recharge capability.
Yes, that’s all in one app, in case you were wondering.
As for text messaging. That is so yesterday.
According to PortioResearch, more than 6 billion cell phone users worldwide regularly use text messaging and more than 2.1 billion already use over-the-top social chat apps.
Vodi offers these billions of users a new, free instant messaging service enhanced with features that make it stand apart from the alternatives and ideal for users communicating globally. For example, conversational search gives users instant text recognition and search capability integrated with top-rated apps – including Yelp, Fandango, Spotify, Groupon and YouTube – that intuitively finds relevant links such as restaurant reviews, music tracks and movie showtimes in real time. With this feature, users can easily plan a date or share a new favorite song with friends and family without ever having to search in a browser.
