Talkatone turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android into a true Internet phone. Talkatone uses Google Talk and Google Voice services and bridges the gap between instant messaging on your computer and regular cellular calls on your mobile device. Talkatone can give you calls and texts to anyone in the world over WiFi or 3G/4G without using any cellphone minutes.
Google Voice calls to regular phone numbers are using plain uncompressed audio without packet loss correction. We are working on our own voice transcoding on our servers to introduce better tolerance to network imperfections. It will be released within next several weeks.
Talkatone supports two types of calls:
- Google Voice calling, i.e. calls to regular telephone numbers.
- Google Talk for Talkatone-to-Talkatone or Talkatone-to-Mac/PC calls.
