Google Acquires Conference Call App Previously Available On The iPhone
You may have never heard of the conference calling provider named SayNow, but it created an app for both the iPhone 4 and the Android that allowed users to make free conference calls. Google has just purchased the company, which means that this app is now obsolete. If Google has it their way SayNow will be integrated with the popular Google Voice, and users will have the ability to hold conference calls with as many people as they want to. Google has been purchasing companies left and right, and SayNow’s technology will allow them to target a new type of customer.
SayNow has been the best thing to come to the entertainment and sporting industries since email. Publicists and personal assistants can use the product to voice mails left for celebrities and star athletes. The platform works by connecting these celebrities with their fan base in a way that is both non-intrusive and convenient. Fans can keep in touch with each other by leaving short voice messages, and each member is assigned a number that can be dialed at any time. If Google can find a way to use SayNow’s technology both with their mobile apps as well as with Google Voice, there is a good chance that the Android will be able to overtake the iPhone 4. Die hard sports fans spend billions of dollars a year for memorabilia, game tickets and other merchandise. Having the opportunity to be connected with their favorite players will prompt these fans to sign up for the service in droves. It will take some time for Google to work out all of the kinks, but it seems that iPhone 4 owners are out of luck for now. Apple is already aware of the acquisition and their developers are probably coming up with a solution, but the ultimate result will depend on who is able to come out with their new service first.
