With the Vyke app it’s simple to make free calls to other Vyke users. Open the app and navigate to Contacts. Select the ‘Vyke’ tab to view a list of your contacts that you can call for free. If no Free contacts are visible you can just tap on ‘Invite contacts to Vyke for free’ to send a free message to anyone in your contacts to inform them about making free calls with Vyke.
Your chosen contact will receive an SMS with a link to download the app, once they get a Vyke account their number will display as free in your Vyke contacts. Click on the green free icon in the full contacts view or open an individual contact and tap the ‘Free call’ button and talk for as long as you like completely free of charge.
You must be connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data in order to make free calls with Vyke. As with any app used over mobile data, your mobile operator may charge you for data used outside of your plan. So check with your provider.
Along with free calls you can also send instant messages to other Vyke users free of charge, including text messages, picture messages, video messages, audio messages, location and contact cards.
There are lots of free calling and messaging apps out there, and at Vyke we even still use Skype for some video calls! However, as Vyke is designed for mobile devices, you can enjoy crystal clear free calls that use less bandwidth and are not such a drain on your battery. Of course, Vyke also offers low cost calls to any phone and extra mobile numbers, you can view more features here.
