Nokia and Nimbuzz present Nokia Fun To Win!

We all have our favorite Nimbuzz Chat Buddies, but we thought it wouldn’t hurt to add one more. So Nokia and Nimbuzz have come together to give you one of the smartest Chat Buddies you will ever meet: Nokia Fun to Win!

What is Nokia Fun to Win you ask? Well, as you know Nimbuzz currently has 25 million+ users in India which is approximately a quarter of the internet using population in India and Nokia wanted an interactive campaign to reach out to our users and communicate with them. As the leading cross-platform global communication solution we decided to create a Nokia Chat Buddy that allows our users to start a conversation with Nokia.

Starting today Nokia Fun to Win will appear as a contact available to all Nimbuzz users in India and the Chat Buddy has been designed to challenge the user’s knowledge in a quiz format. With every correct answer, you will move up in the leaderboard and the top users stand a chance to win Nokia smartphones at the end of every Sunday. Don’t lose hope if you don’t win today because the Nokia Fun to Win chat buddy will be present for 3 more Sundays.

The questions have been divided in four categories Technology, Sports, Movies and History. Every Sunday we will pick one of these four categories and you can test your knowledge going head to head with 25 million other users, pretty much making it one of the largest quizzes ever arranged. Today the Nokia Chat Buddy is going to quiz you on Technology, so be ready to bring out the Einstein in you.

Finally! It’s here!

We know you guys have been asking and waiting for this for quite a while!

We have had quite a few requests about our messenger’s availability on the platform.

Well, Nimbuzz and Windows 8 have come together to enhance the messaging experience on the platform.

We have taken extra care to structure the app in a manner that our users can couple the Nimbuzz experience with the advantages that the Windows 8 platform offers to its users across the world.

Here’s a look at what are some of the additions that we have made to make the Nimbuzz experience for all of you even more pleasurable:

  • Nimbuzz is now available in almost all popular languages spoken across the globe including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Hindi and Arabic.
  • Cool Windows Phone 8 Features including Content Based Live Tiles & Locked Screen Notifications have been included into the messenger
  • Nimbuzz also supports resizable Windows Phone 8 Live Tiles. Users can choose the size they prefer for display on the device’s home screen. A larger Live Tile can also visually alert the user to the number of unread messages. Additionally, The Live Tile, regardless of size, will periodically flip over to show a segment of the content so a user can decide to immediately to respond, to join a chat group or to view later.

The messenger is up for download from the Windows Phone Marketplace and alternatively from here.

Hope you guys enjoy the all new Nimbuzz experience on Windows 8. Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
