Gemalto has expanded its LinqUs Facebook for SIM software application to include Facebook Messenger, bringing the messaging service to all mobile subscribers with any type of handset.
LinqUs Facebook for SIM comes pre-installed on the SIM cards of mobile operators offering the service, and requires no data subscription or app download by the end user, delivering convenient and real-time access to the social network using all types of handset.
The new Gemalto solution enables users to message and chat with their friends straight from the phone interface. The app launches automatically when they turn on their handset so they can start chatting immediately. Furthermore each time a new message is received, Facebook for SIM displays an interactive notification on the screen like when receiving a SMS message for increased convenience and a more real-time conversation. The solution also harnesses a protected automatic sign-in capability.
