Irvine-based YouMail, a provider of cloud-based telecommunication services, has made its Visual Voicemail Plus application available for free to all Viaero Wireless subscribers. The voicemail application will be preloaded on the regional wireless carrier’s Android smartphones. Viaero’s iPhone and BlackBerry users can now download the app directly from their app stores.
"Like most carriers, Viaero Wireless is seeing its customers move to smartphones," said Mike Felicissimo, executive vice president of Viaero Wireless. "With YouMail, Viaero can offer its smartphone customers a state-of-the-art visual voicemail service without having to deal with time and expense of integrating new equipment into its network operations."
YouMail’s Visual Voicemail Plus app has been downloaded more than three million times and more than 75 million distinct callers have interacted with the company’s service at one point or another. The new Viaero availability is expected to attract more users of YouMail’s service.
"We're finding that more and more carriers are distributing YouMail to their users in lieu of trying to build or integrate their own next generation voicemail experiences," said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. "We see YouMail as the future of enhanced telecommunications services, like voicemail, where those services are moved out of the network and into the cloud, made social, optimized for smartphones, and are made available through a premium model."
