Vonage Mobile App Now Integrated with Android Wear

Is a smartwatch on your must-have list? We’re excited to announce that the Vonage Mobile® App is now integrated with Android™ Wear smartwatches!

Whether running into a meeting with their phone in their pocket or rushing to catch the train with it tucked in their bag, multi-tasking consumers don’t always have the luxury of having their smartphone readily available to respond to a call, or may not even be aware someone is trying to reach them.

To help busy consumers communicate how and when they choose, Vonage has innovated the Vonage Mobile® App to integrate with AndroidTM Wear. The App allows smartwatch users to reject incoming calls and reply to text messages without having to pull out their phone. Users simply reject a call with a double tap gesture that automatically replies to the caller with a pre-set “can’t talk right now” message.

Android Wear users can respond to text messages with voice-to-text functionality or with one of five preset responses:

• I’m in!
• In a meeting, can’t talk right now
• Busy, ttyl?
• Running late, be there soon
• I’ll talk to you soon

Other Android Wear features available in the Vonage Mobile App include the ability to mirror your phone’s notifications and integrate with the phone’s native contact list.

The Android Wear-compatible version of the Vonage Mobile App is now available in the Google PlayTM Store.
