Plingm vs. Skype

Plingm vs. Skype

Plingm, the mobile VoIP app, goes head-to-head with Skype by offering rates up to 70% lower than Skype.       

(Stockholm, May 28, 2013) Plingm, the freemium mobile VoIP app is ready to challenge the Goliath of VoIP, offering low cost calls at rates up to 70% below Skype. The Plingm strategy is to be 100% mobile, offering great call quality at the best price and without connection fees or asterisks.  

“We are going to build the IKEA of mobile communication, making quality mobile communication affordable”, says Johan Öhman, recently appointed CEO of Plingm.


Unlike Skype, Plingm is 100% mobile. Built to support a mobile life style, the Plingm app reflects a dedication to simplicity, mobility and transparency. All features of the app can easily be accessed ‘on the go’, including the in-app purchasing of calling credit. There are no connection fees or extra tariffs. By using one’s mobile number as Plingm ID, users will not have to remember user ID names.


Social group chats

The app’s calling and messaging features are integrated with social media giants Facebook and LinkedIn, creating a connection between social hubs. The IM feature is platform agnostic, allowing users to send group messages to people on LinkedIn, Facebook and their phonebook at the same time for free. Users that have connected to social media are able to call their contacts without having their phone number.


How Plingm works:

Plingm combines the best of aspects of innovative and traditional ways of calling.  Calls are routed via the internet or partially through operator networks, enabling Plingm to offer the best possible calling rates to virtually any number in the world. To place a call, the user buys credits, which are then billed as any purchase made in Google Play or App Store, no PC needed. 


Plingm is available for iOS and Android devices and is free to download from Google Play and App Store and also via Plingm’s webpage.

Fantastic call quality between Spain and UK even without WI-FI
