Conversations - not just calls

For each of your contacts, Libon summarizes your recent conversations, pulling into one place instant messaging, calls, and voicemails so you can have insightful contextual communications.

Best personalized voicemail: make your callers feel special

Libon's voicemail offers advanced features including customized greetings for individuals or groups, and text transcription of voicemails*.

You don't speak the same way to your partner, your family, your colleagues or your customers so Libon lets you sort your contacts into groups, each group hearing a different greeting message. Callers are recognized by their name and even receive your location, if part of a trusted group. Greetings may integrate your last tweet or Facebook status to dynamically update the greeting message*.

For when it's not convenient, there's no need to listen to voice messages, Libon converts voice messages to text. And with Libon you don't even have to record greetings, just type them in Libon and choose a voice from our voice library*.

Contacts, conversations, messages - everything is saved and synched in our cloud. Lost your phone? Just download Libon on your new handset and find everything in its place.

Free…

A free version of Libon is available with free HD calls and text messaging between Libon users, a visual voicemail with greetings customization for up to 3 different contacts or groups of contacts, Text-to-speech functionality*, voicemails transcription for Libon contact messages*, iPhone and email notification of missed voicemails received, etc….

All this combines to make Libon the most powerful communications app available today.

In 2013 Libon will be RCS services compatible (chat & group chat, files transfer, On-call content sharing). Orange is convinced that RCS standard embedded in the handsets and in downloadable applications is a key factor for the rapid  expansion of this standard built under GSMA supervision.
