textPlus is VoIP based communication service that provides services like sending text messages among various regions. Users can make international calls for free or a slight fee based on their region. textPlus also has a free voicemail, cloud hosting, group chat support, custom phone number and theme tuning options. textPlus is a free-to-download app available for all around the world.
Based on your region, you're eligible for making free local and international calls to others through the textPlus app. You can type in the number manually or choose one from your contacts book locally. Before making this, you'll be asked permissions to microphone and contacts book.
You'll also be asked permissions to access camera for taking pictures and videos (for sending MMS) and location to determine the area you're living in. textPlus allows users in the USA and Canada to make free voice calls among them. And if you're outside the region, you should earn credits or call minutes to do so. It's affordable too, as the charges start from as low as 2 cents a minute.
Free Text Messages
Irrespective of the region you're living in, you're eligible for sending text messages to yours friends for free. And the good thing, your recipients doesn't need to have textPlus installed. Also, users can create and participate in group chats, send texts, pictures, documents and videos - all for free!
While the outbound calls are charged at a low fee, all inbound calls are free. Also, textPlus has a free voicemail service, which can save and repeat your unattended calls. Further, there's a cloud hosting service to store your call recordings online, and access them from anywhere and any device.
You can go through your call history just as your native Phone app, and even set customization text-tones, ringtones, and vibration modes. Also, textPlus users can customize the app themes for a desired look and make quick replies to calls and messages. It's an ad supported platform but can be avoided by subscribing for paid plans.
