HD calling from PC to Mobile and Vice Versa – Nimbuzz 1.4

Having released HD quality voice calls for iPhone (iOS) and Android users, we are back with even more goodies. The new Nimbuzz 1.4 bridges the HD calling gap between smartphones and Windows PC users.

Want to test the HD quality calls? Get Nimbuzz now!

And here is the complete features list:

  • HD calling from Nimbuzz PC to Nimbuzz PC, iPhone (iOS) and Android.
  • Tabbed chat – save space on your desktop and organizes your chat windows into one.
  • New Contact list layout with updated status icons.
  • Retrieve location of your friends who using Nimbuzz on their mobile phones.

Below you can find more info about each feature feature.

The new update allows you to make HD quality calls to your Nimbuzz friends that are using an Android, iPhone (iOS) or PC  and have the latest Nimbuzz version installed.

This is possible thanks to our new peer to peer calling system, which doesn’t route the call through our servers, but makes a direct connection between the two mobile devices. Your calls will be connected faster, the calling quality will be crystal clear, and the probability of dropped calls  enormously reduced.

The new version auto-detects your  connection speed for HD voice calls and displays an HD indicator on the call screen in real time.

HD calling is available for Android, iPhone (iOS) and PC users but we are working on getting it on (Nokia) Symbian phones as well.

Another cool feature is the tabbed chat. This saves time by keeping  your desktop organized and offers you one central dashboard for all your communication by gathering all your chats in one place.

If you you miss the old way, that is still available. To enable it go to Tools > Options > Messages > Open Chats in separate windows: Check the box.

The new contact list offers you two layouts to choose from: Compact and Normal. In this version we have also updated the status icons  for Online, Away, Busy and Offline modes to look even better :D.

Last but not least, you can retrieve the location of you Nimbuzz contacts that are online via their mobile. To do that move your mouse over their name, click on the little down arrow from their contact card and select “Get location“.

We hope you will enjoy our brand new version as much as we do :D. Download now and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

The new update allows you to make HD quality calls to your Nimbuzz friends that are using an Android mobile phone and have the new Nimbuzz version (2.0.2) installed. This is possible thanks to our new peer to peer calling system, which doesn’t route the call through our servers, but makes a direct connection between the two mobile devices. Your calls will be connected faster, the calling quality will be crystal clear, and the probability of dropped calls  enormously reduced

  1. […] There are a lot of other customization options as well. You can try it once. And if you are a person who use different chat clients like GTalk, Y! Messenger, MSN Messenger, Facebook chat and others, you can use this one app and use all these services in this. You can even buy some credits and use you Windows computer as a phone. You can download Nimbuzz for Windows from here. […]

  12. We don’t have plans to implement a Linux version at the moment. You can use the Nimbuzz Webchat from your browser at my.nimbuzz.com.

    queralt escrich December 23rd, 2010
  13. That happens because VoIP calling is blocked by the official regulations in your country, and due to these circumstances we cannot help at the moment.
    We recommend you to try call using other networks.

  14. That happens most likely because you use an old Nimbuzz client without FB Connect. What device and Nimbuzz version you use?

  15. What device and Nimbuzz version you use?

    queralt escrich December 23rd, 2010
  16. What device model you use?
    What OS you have?
    Are you calling to IM buddies or you call landline numbers via NimbuzzOut/ SIP?
    Are you able to hear the other party?
    We’ll look into it.

  20. i have just started using Nimbuzz and very satisfied with what it can do. However i’m having problem making voice call to yahoo! network. Via my mobile it’s connected & ringing, yet nothing from the recepient. Is that conectable to both ‘yahoo! Mail’ or ‘yahoo! IM’?
    LONG LIVE NIMBUZZ !! Excellent app!

    Vista users should upgrade the PC client while running in Administrator mode. To do so, first exit Nimbuzz by right clicking the Nimbuzz icon in the system tray and selecting “Exit”. Next, locate the Nimbuzz icon on your desktop, right click and select “Run as Administrator”. Nimbuzz will now start and once you sign-in you will be able to upgrade.
    Give it a try and let us know if the issue persist.

    Your X2 device uses a Java version of Nimbuzz which does not include the calling feature.

  42. @Isam – Yahoo blocks access to your IM account via Nimbuzz, if it detects a lot of unsuccessful login attempts in a short period of time. You can do the following in order to unlock your Yahoo account and use it via Nimbuzz: Try to login into your Yahoo account from your web browser (http://www.yahoo.com), then add the Yahoo account on Nimbuzz after sometime it should start working fine.
