The freebies and perks just keep coming in.
If you’re like me and countless others who are always looking for ways and opportunities to maximize the use and benefits of your cellular and mobile data service, then you’re in luck!
Just days after Globe’s recent announcement of their strategic partnership with Lazada, here they are once again announcing something really cool which I am sure their subscribers will absolutely enjoy.
In another revolutionary move to sustain its leadership in the mobile data business, Globe Telecom has forged a partnership with WhatsApp! I know, right?
This Globe and WhatsApp partnership will allow customers to enjoy FREE access to the mobile messaging app with a prepaid promo or postpaid plan subscription.
Prepaid and postpaid customers will find this Globe and WhatsApp partnership very beneficial because what this means is that, with free WhatsApp, users will be able to enjoy real-time messaging and voice calling WITHOUT DATA CHARGES on any Globe prepaid promo or myLifestyle Plan subscription starting April 30, 2015.
It’s really easy to take advantage of this neat offering!
How to take advantage of the Globe and WhatsApp partnership
With the Globe and WhatsApp partnership, prepaid customers registered to any of their favorite text, call or surf promos such as GoSakto, GoUnli25, GoUnli20, and GoSurf as well as postpaid customers on myLifestyle Plan can avail of free access to WhatsApp.
You might probably ask what customers can expect with this new Globe and WhatsApp partnership.
Well… with free WhatsApp, Globe customers can exchange text and video messages, create messaging groups and send each other unlimited images without having to pay any extra amount on top of their current prepaid promos or monthly service fees (MSF).
WhatsApp has been one of the most trusted mobile apps for years. In fact, it was one of the very first apps I downloaded years ago… back when I still had an iPhone 3GS. Back then, WhatsApp still didn’t have a calling feature.
Simultaneous to the launch of the Globe and WhatsApp partnership, WhatsApp also recently introduced its WhatsApp Calling feature that allows users to make and accept calls, decline or respond to calls with a message, use a speakerphone and mute the microphone feature.
According to Dan Horan, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business Group at Globe, they are proud to be partnering with global companies to give customers the best digital experiences on their devices.
Issa Cabreira, Globe Senior Vice President for Consumer Mobile Marketing, further adds that as part of Globe’s continuing journey to enable the Filipino digital lifestyle, they have collaborated with WhatsApp to let customers enjoy free access to one of the world’s leading messaging apps with a prepaid promo registration or postpaid plan subscription.
Currently, WhatsApp has approximately an astounding 800 million users… and, according to Brian Acton, Co-Founder of WhatsApp, with the new WhatsApp Calling feature, it gives all of them the convenience to call friends and family all over the world. In addition, Brian also said that WhatsApp is excited to be partnering with Globe to enrich everyday communications for Filipinos in the Philippines and abroad.
Considering how we Pinoys love to get in touch with friends and our endearing trait of maintaining strong ties with family whether here or abroad, I’m pretty sure Filipinos are just as excited about the Globe and WhatsApp partnership.
So, whether you’re missing family or if you want to simply say hi to friends living oceans away, find comfort in the thought that with this amazing new Globe and WhatsApp partnership, our wonderful world, thankfully, just got a little bit smaller.
WhatsApp is a cross-platform, real-time mobile messaging application that allows millions of people around the world to stay connected with their friends and family. To access free WhatsApp, customers can just download the app and use it free of data charges instantly.
Aside from free WhatsApp, prepaid and postpaid customers can also enjoy free access to Facebook by subscribing to their favorite Globe promos.
