Phone conversations are great for conveying information with clarity, nuance and emotion. Still, many of us would rather go back-and-forth by email and text instead of jumping on a phone call.
One of the biggest problems with phone calls is that no one really knows how long a call will be – and some conversations are hard to end. In addition, the thought of calling others in the middle of their busy day can seem intrusive and even rude. These are just a couple of the reasons so many of us hesitate before making or accepting a phone call.
Kwingle is a free app (iOS, Android) that removes the uncertainty and social awkwardness associated with phone calls and transforms the medium into a convenient, quick, and productive means of communication. Here’s how:
I was able to chat with Kwingle’s Founder and CEO, Markus Reinmund, who pointed out:
“From corporate executives to stay-at-home moms, when the phone rings busy people implicitly ask themselves, ‘Do I have time for this call?’ Now, with Kwingle, they know exactly how short a call will be, can dive right into a conversation, handle nuanced issues without creating a long text or email chain, and don’t have to worry about the call taking more time than expected.”
For Kwingle, excellent call quality is a key requirement for success. After trying other VoIP solutions with mixed results, Kwingle turned to Sinch for app-to-app VoIP calling and Markus added,
“Sinch turned out to be a fantastic choice for Kwingle. The Sinch platform offers incredible VoIP quality and Sinch’s feature set provides strong optionality for future product expansions.”
Markus’ plans for Kwingle go far beyond the call features shared in this post/article. Exciting updates are scheduled for early 2017 that could significantly disrupt and transform how we communicate via phones today.
