Telefónica has announced that its multi-device calling and messaging application, TU Go, can now be accessed directly within compatible web browsers, removing the need to download an application for desktop use. The solution which has been tested fully on Chrome and Firefox with the promise of supporting more browsers soon, will make cross-device calling and messaging easier than ever, said the company.
Telefónica has made the solution available in the UK and Argentina with more markets, including Peru, Mexico and Brazil, to follow soon.
The TU Go for Web interface allows for up to five conversations to take place in parallel, removing the need for users to open and re-open conversations. Due to the fact the the service uses data inputs from Telefónica's network, rather than from a person’s phone, the core functionality of a phone is available across devices, making the whole experience seamless.
