Nimbuzz is a relatively well-known cross-platform, instant messaging client that has been around since 2008 and it recently underwent its first facelift since its inception. Claiming to have several hundred thousand registrations per day, Nimbuzz aims to be everything that you would like to communicate with, for free.
You can call, chat and share photos, music and videos and because it’s supported on multiple devices, you can easily engage with your existing friends and also make new friends in the process. Chat Rooms are still popular and meeting strangers and making new connections has never been easier!
You can call fellow Nimbuzz users for free and if they don’t have the application installed, you can use NimbuzzOut, a low cost Pay-As-You-Go service to make calls to mobiles & landlines worldwide from your mobile and PC to everywhere else! Nimbuzz also lets its users make HD video-calls in addition to regular texts and group chats.
The rebranded Nimbuzz now comes with the intuitively placed button at the bottom right that gives you the most commonly used functions available on a single tap. On the contacts screen, it pops out contextual buttons such as Add, Invite & Find people but on the chatrooms screen, it lets one Create, Filter or Search for chatrooms. The easy navigation pane helps list down features for users who can quickly access special features like Buying Nimbuckz (Nimbuzz’s virtual currency) or topping up their international calling minutes.
Another unique feature of Nimbuzz is the ability to suggest intelligent emoticons or stickers which popup automatically on the screen while you are chatting. So instead of typing the word ‘beer’, one can actually send an image of a frothing beer glass, which makes messaging fun!
Nigel Eastwood, Group CEO, New Call Telecom, said, “I believe that the rebranding coupled with a refreshed business strategy will help in strengthening the relationship between Nimbuzz and its customers. This new brand reflects our enthusiasm and focus on connecting our customers’ information silos and automating their processes.”
Commenting on the launch, Vikas Saxena, CEO, Nimbuzz India said, “Our refreshed branding goes much deeper than just a makeover. It combines our consumer centric mindset with our commitment to technical excellence and innovation. Nimbuzz, a pioneer of mobile communication, evolves once more.”
