It’s only a few days since Vodafone announced it was bringing WiFi Calling to Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge+ devices in the UK later this year, but now the UK carrier has also announced the Vodafone Call+ and Message+ service. It uses the same Rich Communications Services (RCS) that Google talked about earlier this week, allowing users to share more than just their voice during a call, we have more details after the break.
In basic terms, the Call+ and Message+ function will allow users to share additional content to other Call+ users both before and during calls. Vodafone says that the Call+ function is pre-baked into its Sony Z3 and Z5 handsets, with users being able to share content in real-time to other Call+ users. Vodafone users with other makes of handsets will have to install the Call+ and Message+ app from the Play Store (Link below) to make us of the service.
Let your friends know why you are calling even before they answer by adding importance, a subject, your location and a picture, that will be visible when the call rings.
Share pictures, location, contact card or any file while talking, without leaving the call.
