Facebook Launches CatchUp, an Audio-only Calling App that Shows the Availability of People to Call

0

Facebook’s New Product Experiments (NPE) team has just released a new app called CatchUp that allows people to indicate that they are online and available to talk over the phone.

CatchUp is a voice calling app from Facebook and would only allow people to show their availability to take phone calls or not. If the user on the other end is available to take calls, you can call them using the app. The basic idea of this app is to eliminate annoying interruption, missed, and voice calls.

CatchUp only supports voice calls and supports group calls for up to 8 people.  It avoids video calls, which are more intrusive than voice calls, and which can prevent multitasking.

The app is currently available in the USA only and does not require a Facebook account to use. It has been given a very minimal look to make it easier for users to use this service. You can find the CatchUp app for Android and iOS on Google Play Store and Apple App Store respectively.
