A new “outbound talking” service that will be rolled out nationwide by AT&T and Sprint is expected to hit the market in 2019, and is slated to be the biggest service in the market for the first time.
According to the Wall Street Journal, AT&s newest “outward talking” app, called Outbound, will allow users to send messages on their phone to each other, as well as answer calls, text messages and emails from their location.
Outbound calls can be made in real time or can be forwarded to other recipients, as long as they also have the app.
Users can use the app to set up their own personal meeting location and invite others to a “meetup” where they can meet up and talk about business, travel, family, and more.
AT<d also said that the service will be able to deliver personalized text messages, call-backs, email alerts, and notifications to specific contacts, allowing the user to make personal, one-on-one conversations with specific people or groups.
“Outbound calling is a new, highly targeted messaging service that enables you to communicate with a wide range of people in a fraction of the time that you spend with a traditional phone call,” AT>ld CEO Randall Stephenson said in a press release.
“It’s also a platform for you to meet with important people on the other end of your phone call.”
Sprint also announced a new “inbound talking service” called Outreach that will allow for voice and text messaging and answering calls.
In addition to the AT&mansion, AT &S and Sprint announced a deal with the U.K.-based carrier to provide an “outreach” service for the U;nternational carrier, which will allow customers to send SMS messages and voice messages to their mobile phone number in the U.;s European and North American regions.
Sprint is also bringing a new texting service called Outline to the market.
According to the release, Outline is a texting app that allows users to text or reply to messages on a number of different mobile devices.
AT <d says that the messaging app can also “create a customized message, text, and/or audio message with specific recipients, based on a user’s phone number.”
In addition to these new services, AT-Sprint has been expanding its reach in the last couple of years, offering a range of “in-call” services, including an in-app voice calling service that lets you connect with your friends, family members, and coworkers in real-time.
AT-T announced a similar service called AT&amessage in 2019.
