Vodafone Call+ adds sharing to phone calls

Making a phone call hasn’t really changed since Alexander Graham Bell picked up his invention to chat to a mate in 1876. Yes, you can now make a call without being restrained by wires, but it’s still just two people talking to each other. Or it was until Vodafone Call+ launched.

The new app from the UK’s third biggest mobile network brings huge range of new features to the humble phone call, making it more like Skype.

To start, you can add a message to your calls so people know what you need to talk about before they answer. You can also add importance, your location and a photo. That should all be pretty handy if you know someone’s in a meeting, for example.

Vodafone Call+Once you’re in the call, Vodafone Call+ will let you share pictures, maps and even switch to a video call without hanging up.

And when the call’s over, you and the person you were chatting to can see everything that was shared in your call logs.

While everything’s run through an app, the calls you make will still count as minutes (rather than data like it would if you used an app like Skype), although the sharing features seem to use internet.

To make use of Call+, you’ll need to download the app to your Android phone (unless you have a phone from Sony’s Z3 or Z5 ranges as these have the technology built in) and be on the Vodafone network. Once the app’s installed, just use it instead of the built in dialler to make calls and as long as the person you’re calling also has the app, you’ll be able to share with them.

At the moment, Vodafone hasn’t created an iPhone app, but the network says it’s working on one.
