Vodafone is expanding its portfolio of community services in the Vodafone live! mobile portal with Xchat. This is a result of cooperation with Centrum Holdings, with whom the operator recently made Centrum.cz email accessible on phones. Vodafone customers can now conveniently use their mobiles to chat with friends at the following portals: Líbimseti.cz, Seznamka.cz, Rande.cz, Lidé.cz, Dohazovač, Pokec, and Xchat.

“For a long time now, mobile communication has meant more than just calling and sending SMS messages. Chatting through mobiles is very easy; therefore, it is growing in popularity among our customers,” says Michal Barták, Vodafone live! portal Specialist, adding, “Xchat is an excellent addition to our portfolio of personal ad sites and chat rooms at the Vodafone live! portal.”

“We have recorded massive growth in the number of young people using our mobile services,” says Ondřej Švihálek, Director of Community Services, Centrum Holdings, adding, “So far, the main attraction of these services is clearly chatting, which doesn’t cause users the slightest problem when switching between chatting on their computers and on their mobiles. Therefore, I am very pleased that Vodafone customers can also now chat wherever they want.”

Benefits for customer:

  • Convenient, mobile access to existing chat account at Xchat
  • Simplicity – the customer does not have to download anything, everything is ready to use; they simply have to click on the corresponding link at the Vodafone live! portal
  • Familiar environment – the functions that the customer knows from using the service on their PC are accessible on their mobile phone
  • The service is presented in a format that is suitable for mobile phones
  • Transparent billing – a fixed fee for access, the price is presented to the customer clearly before they actually start using the service; the customer does not pay any additional fees for transferring data
