Nexus 4 users can get the most out of their Google smart phone and one of them is to make free phone calls with the use of a Wi-Fi connection. Below are the instructions on how to utilize available free services that would allow making a phone call without paying the per-minute charges.
GrooVe IP Lite, a free Android application that the SNRB Labs developed, provide the offered services of Google Voice and Google Chat where users can make free calls to any number just as long as the Wi-Fi network is available. With the GrooVe IP Lite, incoming phone calls can be received as well similar to a phone service subscription.
Compared to the other VoIP applications available from the Google Play Store, GrooVe IP Lite would still work even if the person you are calling have not yet installed the application in their smart phone. The other applications offering free VoIP calls include Google Voice, Skype, Fring, Tango and Kakao Talk.
Setting Up the GrooVe IP Lite App:
1. Launch Play Store app from the Nexus 4 smart phone then search for 'groove ip lite.'
2. Select GrooVe IP Lite, download and install the app into the Nexus 4.
3. After installation is completed, launch the GrooVe IP Lite then enter Gmail identification.
4. Enter Google account to log in.
5. Make the free phone calls and enjoy the service.
Another application that offers free phone calls with Wi-Fi use is the OBi202 VoIP Adapter. Amazon offers the application for a price of $75. What the Nexus 4 users need to do is to download the OBiOn application from the Google Play Store.
After the download, free phone calls can already be made even without the availability of a phone service. The Obi202 VoIP Adapter with the Google Voice service is a very helpful technique in making unlimited phone calls without the per-minute charges.
