Bharti Airtel has partnered with Globe Telecom to provide Airtel customers from around the world access to an affordable calling plan to the Philippines via voice calling app airtel talk. Available on both iOS and Android, Airtel users can use the app to call their Globe users in the country for as low as $14.99.

The app has a number of other advanced features including call me free service, multi-party conferencing, voice message chat, multi-device access, free audio/video app-to-app calling, and instant phonebook access.

The app is meant for overseas workers with some special features such as Share Credit with Friends which allows users to share Calling Credit, and Call Me Free which enables friends and family to call airtel talk users for free using any airtel landline/mobile.
