Telefonica unveils offline SMS posting tool

Tuesday 28 November 2017 | 15:11 CET | News
Telefonica has introduced a tool designed to allow mobile users to post on social networks or send emails via SMS when they cannot access a 3G or 4G network. The service, dubbed Pigram, was developed by the company's data unit Luca and is now available in beta form for Movistar customers in Spain with Android devices. After downloading the Pigram app, users simply have to authorise the program to post messages in encrypted SMS form via Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and Microsoft Outlook.
