Your contacts only need to download Libon for free from the App Store to begin enjoying free HD crystal clear calls between each other, all you need is 3G or Wi-Fi connections.

Free messages

Libon's instant messaging is as easy to use as SMS.

Conversations - not just calls

For each of your contacts, Libon summarizes your recent conversations, pulling into one place instant messaging, calls, and voicemails so you can have insightful contextual communications.

Best personalized voicemail: make your callers feel special

Libon's voicemail offers advanced features including customized greetings for individuals or groups, and text transcription of voicemails*.

You don't speak the same way to your partner, your family, your colleagues or your customers so Libon lets you sort your contacts into groups, each group hearing a different greeting message. Callers are recognized by their name and even receive your location, if part of a trusted group. Greetings may integrate your last tweet or Facebook status to dynamically update the greeting message*.

For when it's not convenient, there's no need to listen to voice messages, Libon converts voice messages to text. And with Libon you don't even have to record greetings, just type them in Libon and choose a voice from our voice library*.  

Never lose anything

Contacts, conversations, messages - everything is saved and synched in our cloud. Lost your phone? Just download Libon on your new handset and find everything in its place.

Free…

A free version of Libon is available with free HD calls and text messaging between Libon users, a visual voicemail with greetings customization for up to 3 different contacts or groups of contacts, Text-to-speech functionality*, voicemails transcription for Libon contact messages*, iPhone and email notification of missed voicemails received, etc….

…or upgrade to Premium

In all 90 countries, users can opt for the Premium option. This in-app subscription provides unlimited customized greetings, full-length transcription of all voicemail messages*, unlimited storage and email copies of all voicemails.  In addition, Libon offers its Premium users a full hour of international calling every month to landlines or mobile numbers in 31 countries (non available in Spain, Slovakia, Romania, Belgium, Luxemburg, Dominican Republic, Armenia, Moldavia) - allowing users to use or experiment with Libon even with friends or family who don't yet use it.

All this combines to make Libon the most powerful communications app available today.

In 2013 Libon will be RCS services compatible (chat & group chat, files transfer, On-call content sharing). Orange is convinced that RCS standard embedded in the handsets and in downloadable applications is a key factor for the rapid  expansion of this standard built under GSMA supervision.

* Available in English, French and Spanish

What a difference a year makes. Organizations aren’t just talking about IoT possibilities, it is now baked into their core business strategy.
