Arriving on the scene in 2007 with the goal of helping businesses stay ahead of the competition while increasing sales and profits, Talk Fusion is a popular tool, one that allows companies to make their marketing efforts more engaging and memorable with the use of video. Today, Talk Fusion is available in more than 140 countries, and it recently expanded by adding a video chat app.

The App's Features

The Fusion on the Go app comes with handy new features and functions for added convenience and to help your company hold onto its competitive edge in the business world. It is available on both iTunes and the Google Play stores. You can download the app to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches that feature the iOS 7 operating system. For Android devices, you'll need access to the 4.4.3 system or a newer one.

Video email is Talk Fusion's lead product, and the app lets businesses easily connect with contacts. Users can send video email messages directly from their Apple or Android device to your clients, making it possible for you them oversee you video marketing campaigns from any location.

The Value of Video in Email

When you're able to incorporate video to personalize email messages for your customers, vendors and even team members, you'll reach them in a way that grabs their attention more than the typical written promotional email will. Higher engagement rates lead to more clickthroughs.

Using the App

Sending videos can all be performed through the app. Record live or upload an older video that you wish to send through the app. Once the video is complete or uploaded, you'll have the option of choosing from one of many templates. You can even change display names and other features to tie more cohesiveness to the message you're sending.

CEO Bob Reina likes to point out that you can also use Talk Fusion for personal calls to friends and family. Unlike other platforms, the convenient thing about this feature is that you and your friends/family can hold video calls between different devices. Calls take place via a shared link, you you'll have the option to connect with your friends and family from anywhere on any device.

With the app, you'll be able to create a name for and secure private meeting rooms. Once they're established, you can revisit them at any time. The program also permits you to host international video calls on any type of mobile or desktop device. You'll have the capability of sending unlimited messages to your personal and professional acquaintances as long as you have a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connection. Use email or a text to invite people to a chat room.

App Upgrades and Features

Like other apps, this one has recently received a few modifications. Picture messaging is a new app feature in chat. In addition, you can now set up chat rooms based on country. You have the option of inviting several friends to chat at once, and you can see who's currently online. With the app, the picture quality is what you'd expect in 2017. The images are clear, with very little blurriness or choppiness on any of the calls I made.

Unlimited messaging is offered through the app, and the program also gives you the option to archive conversations for a later time or date. The mobile app is free of ads, unlike a handful of other apps offering similar service.

Kicking Simplicity up a Notch or Two

Blending a sleek, streamlined design with speedier functionality and more capabilities in addition to added product enhancements, Fusion on the Go has kicked its user-friendly setup and noteworthy simplicity up a notch or two. In doing so, the Talk Fusion is clearly aiming to make this a business app for the masses.
