Vodafone India will today launch a voice-based Twitter like social messaging service, named Bubbly, for its 130 million subscribers across India.
Sometimes described as a ‘voice-based Twitter’, Bubbly social messaging service from Bubble Motion enables users to share status updates in their own voice with fans and followers through any mobile phone, without having to download an application.
Vodafone users who want to use Bubbly need to dial *7* on their handset, record their voice update, and instantly their followers everywhere are notified by SMS and prompted to click and listen. It’s free to start bubbling, and free to follow friends and family.
Indian stars have been swarming to the voice blogging service this year, led by top Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra and Madhavan. Among cricketers, Virender Sehwag, Harbajaan Singh and Yuvrav Singh are using this service. These celebrities share voice-recorded updates on their daily lives, keeping their fans informed in an authentic and intimate way.
Thomas Clayton, Bubble Motion president and chief executive officer said, “Vodafone has recognised the social mobile groundswell early and have moved swiftly to bring this fun service to their customers.”
Bubble Motion is a global provider of mobile messaging and social media applications. It offers services like BubbleTalk, a personal voice messaging service, Bubbly, a voice-based social networking service and BubbleCast, an audio content broadcasting service.
Last year, even Rcom had launched Bubbly social messaging service from Bubble Motion for their subscribers.
