Next generation of phone chat brings exciting voice capabilities to app market
TORONTO, April 24, 2012 /CNW/ - QuestChat, North America's busiest chat line and one-stop destination for exciting phone connections with local singles, today raises the chat game by launching its premiere, free-to-download App for iPhone and Android platforms.
The QuestChat App allows busy singles to make fun, fast connections anytime, anywhere. An interactive voice and social networking tool that connects singles locally and nationally (via GPS) for chat, friendship, conversation, dating, and relationships, the QuestChat App brings essential voice features to the dating app environment. Users hear voice profiles, send instant voice messages and can connect in private conversations with other singles from next door or across the country.
Uniquely, the QuestChat App allows users to simultaneously see (photos) and hear (voice greeting profile) others who are on both the App and the phone chat lines in real time. QuestChat's phone dating and chat lines currently operate in over 300 markets across Canada and the U.S., receiving over 100,000 calls per day, providing massive user content to the App from Day 1.
"What we're most excited about is bringing the personal, authentic element of hearing someone's voice to the ease-of-use of an app," offers Rob Fisher, Director of Marketing for First Media Group, which operates QuestChat.
"Our phone dating systems offer robust features that are great when you're calling from home, but when you're on the go, you want something simple. On the App, you just swipe to move through the voice profiles and tap the icons to send messages or talk live with someone. There's no typing, no keypad choices to remember, just an easy, smooth experience. You really can be talking to someone new in seconds. "
QuestChat is a location-based service allowing its users the thrill of talking to someone new in a safe and secure environment. GPS locations are used only to place individuals in "local" groupings; users' specific locations and phone numbers are never revealed. The QuestChat App will be available first from the iTunes app store with the Android version (via Google Play) made available shortly thereafter.
Additional features offered by the QuestChat App include:
- Profile consisting of user nickname, photo, age and interest category
- Listen to local or national voice profiles
- GPS location used to place user in "local" listing – specific location remains hidden
- Send private voice messages to other users
- Connect in private, one-on-one phone conversations
- Block unwanted users
- Easy set-up of account, profile, preferences and push notifications
