Three inTouch WiFi app hits one million downloads


WiFi calling and texting app enables customers to communicate with others by connecting to a WiFi signal when they don’t have mobile reception

Three inTouch, the free app from the operator that enables customers to make calls and texts over WiFi, has been downloaded one million times since launch in July.

The service enables them to communicate with others, even if nthey don’t have a mobile signal. They use their Three mobile number as normal, with all calls and texts taken from existing monthly price plans or prepay credit.

It is currently used to make more than 1.6 million calls and send one million text messages a week, and is free to download from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Three director of customer strategy Danny Dixon said: “By using the app, our customers will never miss that important call or text, whether they’re in the home, commuting to work, or away on holiday.

“And with the introduction of WiFi on different modes of transport, including trains, planes and the London underground, Three inTouch is only going to grow in popularity.”
