Reliance Infocomm on Thursday launched its Talking Message Service (TMS), which will allow all its customers to send voice messages to not only other mobile phones but fixed landlines and wireless phones.
"Messaging is no longer going to be limited to texting. TMS will give a new dimension to short messages with a personalised touch of customer's own voice," President Reliance Communications (Applications and Solutions Group) Mahesh Prasad said in a company release.
According to Prasad, this facility would add a personal touch in the message.
"We are confident that this offering would be a success amongst the youth and those who do not prefer texting," he said.
The service is operator independent and technology agnostic. This means a conventional BSNLMTNL landline can also receive a TMS, so can any other CDMA customer, the release said.
To use this service, Reliance customers will have to dial 1234111 from their phone (moblie or landline) and follow the voice prompts to record the message and send it on any mobile or landline number nationwide.
