Globe GMESSAGE now available to iPhone users


iPhone users will be pleased to hear that Globe Telecom’s instant messaging app, GMESSAGE, is now available on the iPhone for free via the App Store, allowing iPhone users to experience unlimited mobile messaging that supports instant messaging and text messaging services.

GMESSAGE is available to both Globe prepaid and postpaid subscribers, and allows them to send free GMESSAGEs and text messages from one application. GMESSAGE users are able to send and receive unlimited messages to and from other GMESSAGE users for free no matter where they are in the world. Globe subscribers can send GMESSAGEs to non-GMESSAGE users for only P0.15 a message. Non-GMESSAGE users who send messages to GMESSAGE users will be charged standard SMS rates.

GMESSAGE users can send photos, videos, voice notes, and audio files, and can initiate group chats with up to 25 recipients to expand conversations to more people. The app also has an innovative technology, Magic Words, that can detect the context of a conversation and link you Google Maps directions, Wikipedia pages or YouTube videos. GMESSAGE can send messages to non-smartphone users as well.

“With the availability of GMESSAGE on iOS, more Filipinos can now experience the benefits of this next-generation messaging service”, said Peter Bithos, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe Telecom. “With GMESSAGE, we are upping the ante in instant messaging by providing users with a new, relevant, and exciting way to connect with each other. Text messaging is what our customers love and use most of all, so it is important that we continue to offer world-leading messaging services. We are confident that this service will add value to today’s fast-paced lifestyle, making conversations easier and hassle-free.”

To download GMESSAGE, visit on your mobile phone’s browser, or text GMESSAGE to 8888. Since GMESSAGE requires a mobile data connection, subscribers should avail of a Globe PowerSurf or SuperSurf plan to have a hassle-free mobile messaging experience anytime, anywhere.
