Spanish mobile operators launch Joyn services

Wednesday 28 November 2012 | 09:58 CET | News

The GSMA has announced that Spanish mobile operators Movistar, Orange and Vodafone have launched Rich Communication Services (RCS) through the consumer-facing brand joyn to their customers. With this launch, Spain becomes the first country in the world to offer a fully interoperable rich communications service, supported by Movistar, Orange and Vodafone, to its mobile subscribers.

Joyn services enable customers to chat and enrich messaging or voice calls by exchanging images or video simultaneously during calls, with any member of their contact list that has joyn, regardless of the user’s network or mobile device. Additional services such as VoIP or IP-video call will be introduced in the near future. These services may be used on both the operators’ mobile networks and on Wi-Fi networks.

Movistar, Orange and Vodafone are initially offering joyn services through an application for Android, with a version for the iPhone to follow shortly. Spanish mobile subscribers can now download joyn through app stores, and they will soon be able to purchase several joyn-embedded devices that have completed interoperability testing with the three MNOs. joyn-embedded devices are expected to be available in retail outlets at the beginning of 2013.
