Fring app, Fring calling, Fring messaging

The last time we saw an update for Android’s Fring was back in July, which added some improved audio controls and a new, enhanced timeline.

The newest release, version, adds even more enhancements, particularly to the UI and notifications. For the former, the UI is smoother and overall easier to use with a sliding menu added that lets you simply slide your finger from the left to the right to open the menu. Also, the photos of incoming callers now take up the full screen. In regard the latter, you can now reply to a missed call or message straight from the system notifications, which have been enhanced with the addition of visual LED notifications when calls or messages are recieved.

Also added in this released is the ability to quickly mute incoming calls by simply flipping your handset face down when it’s ringing. This is a feature that has been built in to many Android smartphones in the past, but is nevertheless a welcome option for those who utilize Fring and don’t have the feature in the core device functions.

Finally, you can also now control the display of “hidden” contacts through the app, which also includes some minor bug fixes to boot.

Get the update right now via Google Play.
