Airtel Introduces Free Calling, with new version


Bharti Airtel on Wednesday announced one-time 50 minutes of free calls within Airtel network with new version of its MyAirtel mobile application. The company announced 2GB of cloud storage space for users, which we had reported about last week.

The new features are available on both Android and iOS, and users are advised to either update their apps or download the new versions from Google Play and the App Store to access the new MyAirtel features.

“There are two new exciting apps from the Airtel stable – Airtel Cloud and Airtel Dialer. Airtel Cloud provides 2GB of free cloud storage and back up. Airtel Dialer offers 50 minutes of free Airtel-to-Airtel calling benefits, in addition to its call management feature,” Airtel said in a statement.

Airtel Cloud allows users to back up audio, video, photos, documents, contacts, call history, and more. Users will not be charged for data consumed for uploading content to Airtel Cloud during night hours, it said. The free scheduled upload feature is currently only available for prepaid users, but will be made available for postpaid users “very soon”, the company said.

As for the new Airtel Dialer app, apart from 50 minutes of free Airtel-to-Airtel calls, users can use the app to get real-time balance information.

Finally, the new MyAirtel app also includes an Airtel Apps section that lists the “top apps” curated by the operator alongside its own apps in a single interface. This includes Ditto TV (with no subscription charges for Airtel users), Hike Messenger app, Wynk Music, Wynk Movies, Juggernaut, and Airtel Money.
