fring is moving to a new platform, one expected to provide a better overall experience to all users, and has just announced the transition to it.
Following the upgrade, all fring communication should become faster and easier, the company notes, adding that owners of devices running under Google’s Android operating system can already take advantage of it.
All they need to do is download the new flavor of the fring application released for them, and all the fring Contacts & fringOut credit will be automatically transferred to the new version.
In addition to the new platform, the latest fring for Android application release comes with a new look and feel, while also providing users with new text log and call log screens.
“In addition to the features you already enjoy using (like free calls, messaging video calls, group video, and almost free calls to landlines & mobiles worldwide with fringOut) we’ve also added some new features like group calls, auto-friend discovery, and more,” the company notes.
Other features packed inside the new app release include phone number only registration, no username/password, along with automatic recognition of friends that are already using fring.
The dialer has been redesigned as well, and the address book functionality has been improved with the addition of quick action buttons that are now integrated with each contact in the list.
According to the company, the update comes with enhancements to the fringOut calling rates, which are now better than ever.
The process of moving to the new platform has just started, which means that it might take a while before all things are put in order, and the company is aware of that.
“We realize there are glitches and bugs moving such a large customer base to a new platform. We’re working around the clock to fix bugs and provide you all with the best possible service,” fring notes in a blog post.
