Ping is free for users to enable inside Nimbuzz and complements Nimbuzz’s "always-on" product nature. While operators provide the SMS alerts, Ping drives up ARPU via new revenue stream from the additional data use that occurs when customers are prompted to log-in to respond to chat messages, or shared files.
With Nimbuzz Ping, users appear online and available to their contacts even when the Nimbuzz app is closed. When one of their contacts wants to reach them, Ping delivers a free SMS message to their home screens, prompting the user to log in to Nimbuzz and start a data session to communicate.
Nimbuzz Ping is targeted to the mass market of feature phones and optimized to work on low bandwidth networks.
Nimbuzz is the free calls and messaging app. The multi award-winning Nimbuzz application enables people to enjoy free calls, instant messaging, and social networking.
