Nokia Partners With Nimbuzz To Enhance The Messaging Experience On Windows 8









SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Nimbuzz, one of the largest and fastest growing mobile messaging applications in the world, today announced the release of its Nimbuzz app for Windows Phone 8. Leveraging the adoption of Windows Phone 8 devices globally, Nimbuzz brings its popular messaging app to the platform and takes advantage of new features that enhance the user's mobile experience – resizable Live Tiles that support content from within the app and visible notifications when the home screen is locked.

The Nimbuzz app can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace from any Windows Phone 8 device. Along with the increased native language support of the Windows Phone OS, the WP 8 version of Nimbuzz is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Hindi and Arabic.

Nimbuzz is a cross-platform mobile messaging and entertainment app which allows users to message, video, call, meet, and share data with family and friends on any mobile device. With more than 150 million users in more than 200 countries, and more than 210,000 new registrations daily, Nimbuzz has become the ultimate mobile communications tool.

New Windows Phone 8 Features – Content Based Live Tiles & Locked Screen Notifications

Nimbuzz now supports Windows Phone 8 resizable Live Tiles. Users can choose the size they prefer for display on the device's home screen. A larger Live Tile can also visually alert the user to the number of unread messages. Additionally, The Live Tile, regardless of size, will periodically flip over to show a segment of the content so a user can decide to immediately respond, to join a chat group or to view later. The larger the tile, the more content can be displayed.

"Nokia's long history with Nimbuzz across our device portfolio continues to provide our customers with great mobile experiences. As Nokia expands the reach of the Nokia Lumia portfolio, the reach of Nimbuzz also increases," said Richard Kerris, VP of Global Developer Relations, Nokia.

The new Windows Phone 8 release of the Nimbuzz app also supports locked screen notifications. New communication alerts, whether they are chats, group chats, file shares or other notifications, can be viewed when the screen is locked, alerting the user of pending activity within the Nimbuzz app. The new version also delivers increased app performance and responsiveness.
