LinkedIn Users Can Now Call Each Other for Free

STOCKHOLM, November 23, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Farewell, phone numbers. Plingm, the Swedish mobile VoIP app, takes the innovation lead on smartphone communication and introduces free phone calls for LinkedIn's 151 million users. Without a single digit, Plingm users with an iPhone can call their own contacts on LinkedIn directly.

Across the world, LinkedIn has more than 151 million LinkedIn users. Thanks to an innovative back-end solution developed by Plingm, LinkedIn users can now also call and talk to their LinkedIn contacts for free anywhere in the world.

"Mobile numbers are legacy. By using our LinkedIn calling feature, you can always reach the person you want to speak to even if they switch jobs or change their number," says Pandelis Eliopoulos, co-founder of Plingm. "With the growing use of social media, the possibility to call your LinkedIn contacts directly without a phone number is a logical evolution of mobile communication." How to do it Download the Plingm app from the App Store and accept to connect with your LinkedIn account. The app automatically scans and imports all your contacts. Calls between Plingm users are free, regardless if you are in the same town or on the other side of the world.

About the app With the numbers steadily increasing and an impressive consumer rating on App Store, the mobile VoIP app Plingm combines high sound quality with user-friendliness. All calls made to other Plingm users are free, regardless of where they are in the world, and there is no time limit. Calling with this service instead of a traditional operator will save people large sums of money, particularly on international calls. At a low rate, consumers can also call friends not yet using Plingm.
