Miyowa Unifies the Social World Further with Mobile Facebook Chat
Miyowa, a company focused in enhancing the mobile social experience, revealed its plan to deliver mobile Facebook Chat. Facebook Chat joins Facebook on Miyowa's InTouch5 platform and is available individually or aggregated with other social networks and IM.
"Facebook Chat is growing at an amazing rate on the Web. We believe Facebook Chat has become a major channel of communication and will be one of the killer mobile apps in the coming year," Pascal Lorne, co-founder and chief executive officer at Miyowa said in a press release.
The company also revealed that on Sept. 20, 2010, the 35 mobile carriers and seven major handset manufacturers that currently deploy Miyowa's InTouch5 will be offered Facebook Chat, in addition to their traditional IM and social networks.
Miyowa's patented InTouch5 mobile and social push platform and InTouch5 client are designed to offer integrated social network and instant messaging experience to mobile operators and handset manufacturers worldwide. The solution offers Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Yahoo! Messenger, Gtalk, WLM, and AIM in any combination on a dashboard, or integrated with the address book.
The InTouch5 client is available on over 2500 devices across all major OS, and the InTouch5 notification push platform is said to optimize device battery life, protect operator bandwidth, and ensure the fastest display of information on the mobile device.
With operations across the US, Asia and Europe, and partnerships spanning the globe, Miyowa is focused on enhancing social networks and instant messaging on mobile and in the social address book. The Company’s official partner includes key Social Network and Instant Messaging services companies like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, AOL, WLM, MySpace and Gtalk.
Recently, Miyowa has stated that Nokia has embedded the InTouch onto the Nokia C3.
