imo.im Looks to Boost Its VoIP and Messaging Offering With an Assortment of Recent Updates
In the vast world of calling and messaging applications, there is plenty of room for not just one, but many winning applications, especially when you consider the worldwide penetration for smartphones has not even come close to its peak. imo.im looks to be one of these winning apps, as demonstrated by a host of new updates.
One of the most recent of these updates is the addition of the PanPan sticker pack, of which several are animated. This is, of course, in addition to the furry Henry stickers we saw launch on the messaging platform back in March and a nice addition to imo’s newly added sticker offerings, and imo assures us that “MANY more” stickers are “coming soon.”

Another recent update, and arguably the most important recent change, is the addition of 46 languages to the web version of the application. Most of these languages — 30, to be exact — were added to the mobile version of imo back in September, with five launching in early October and another three arriving on December 6 last year.
These new languages include: Afrikaans, Amharic, Arabic, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Zulu.
imoim launched its WebRTC application to rival other big names in the messaging and calling space such as Skype back in February.
All in all, there have been quite a few changes to imo.im for the past few months, with smaller updates and tweaks appearing in between to keep things running smoothly. Right now, the application is currently available for iOS, Android, the web, and Amazon and with any luck, Windows Phone users will be getting their own version someday soon.
