Spain's Tuenti targets WhatsApp with revamped chat

Wednesday 15 June 2016 | 15:10 CET | News
In a bid to rival the popularity of instant messaging (IM) apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram in Spain, Telefonica-owned MVNO Tuenti has announced a redesign of the chat feature available on its app for iOS and Android users. After introducing photo download and call record options in recent months, the operator's redesigned chat makes it a lot easier for users to share images, audio or voice messages, as well as their location. In addition, postpay users can now send an SMS to their contacts without leaving the chat window.
