InstaVoice launches in Tanzania

Leading mobile communication company in East Africa, the Smart and Kirusa, a global leader in providing telecom and social media solutions, have partnered to launch the unique InstaVoice service in Tanzania, reports ITRealms.

The Group CEO, Smart, Abdellatif Bouziani, said that with the deployment of the InstaVoice service, Smart subscribers could now send and receive voicemails and voice messages seamlessly as well as receive missed call notifications anytime they miss a call, including when their mobile is switched off. 

Smartphone users, he said, could do this via the InstaVoice app. Its intuitive and unique chat-like interface allows users to manage and respond to missed calls and voicemails through text as well as rich media, while enjoying other features like unlimited voicemail inbox, personalized voicemail greetings, voicemail delivery over email, option to link multiple numbers and ability to withdraw an already sent voicemail/message.  

As said by him, future phone users and non-app users could still enjoy the service as they will be alerted via SMS of new voicemails or voice messages.

“They can simply follow the short instruction in the SMS to retrieve the messages and can dial ‘star’ followed by the recipient’s number to record and send a voice message,” he said.

The InstaVoice Service, he explained, has been designed to facilitate seamless communication across networks and countries. Over 50 mobile operators across the globe have partnered with Kirusa to provide an integrated InstaVoice experience to over 100 million monthly active users.

“InstaVoice is a highly innovative forum that has recaptured the idea of voice messaging for our customers and in the long run adds to call completion in scenarios when the person one is trying to reach is unreachable, has their phone switched off, or is busy. We strive to provide innovative, value-for-money solutions to our customers and fulfill their need to communicate seamlessly” he said.

Tanzania tele density has reached 79% in 2015, for which mobile voice subscriptions account for the greatest part. In the past five years, mobile subscriptions rose by 89%, from 21m in 2010 to almost 40m in 2015.

Inderpal Singh Mumick, Founder and CEO of Kirusa said, “InstaVoice is a highly acclaimed service across Africa, and we hope to receive an enthusiastic response in Tanzania. The integrated features are sure to deliver an enhanced, and smooth messaging experience.”

InstaVoice is also available as the first-ever voicemail skill on Amazon’s Alexa platform. Users can configure their InstaVoice account to avail a seamless access to voicemails over Alexa Platform.
