HOLMDEL, N.J., April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Addressing the increasingly popular wearables market, Vonage continues its commitment to innovation by bringing the Vonage Mobile® App to Apple Watch™.
Vonage Mobile on Apple Watch means that users no longer need to pick up their iPhone to respond to messages and calls. Vonage Mobile users can respond to calls and text messages from other Vonage Mobile users directly from Apple Watch1.
Understanding consumers are always on-the-go, Vonage Mobile for Apple Watch is one of the first wearable communications apps on the market that allows users to set personal reminders to return a phone call or message at a later time. This can be done directly from the watch’s incoming call screen, or by accessing recent calls/messages from the watch.
“In today’s fast paced environment, consumers want the ability to communicate wherever and how ever they wish,” said Alan Masarek, CEO of Vonage. “Recognizing the increasing integration of wearable technology into everyday life, we created a version of the Vonage Mobile App for the launch of Apple Watch. This evolution of the app is another great example of the Company’s continued commitment to mobility and innovation so our customers have the ability to communicate from anywhere, on any device.”
Vonage Mobile users can also easily reject a call and send a pre-set “Can’t talk right now” message to the caller from the watch. In addition, they can respond to text messages with voice-to-text functionality or with one of five preset responses:
- I’m in!
- In a meeting, can’t talk right now
- Busy, ttyl?
- Running late, be there soon
- I’ll talk to you soon
“Vonage prides itself on addressing changing communications needs with innovative solutions,” said Sagi Dudai, Vice President, Mobile Development for Vonage. “The extension of Vonage Mobile to Apple Watch is another example of our desire to be early to market as new device options become available to consumers.”
Other Vonage Mobile features for Apple Watch include integration with the phone’s native contact list, call waiting and mirroring the iPhone’s notifications.
Vonage Mobile for Apple Watch is now available from the App Store for Apple Watch.
