World premiere everyone: Introducing Push Notifications for Nokia smartphones via Nimbuzz Ping!

Nokia users can finally enjoy a feature that up until now was reserved exclusively to iPhone users. Nimbuzz Ping let’s you receive free text notifications when Nimbuzz friends are trying to connect with you. With Nimbuzz Ping you will appear online to your friends even if you have Nimbuzz turned off on your mobile phone.

We are launching this feature with Telkomsel in Indonesia, with more operators in India coming soon. If you would like to be notified when Nimbuzz Ping will be available with your operator sign-up here.

Our friends from GigaOm and Into Mobile stated it is a “smart move on the part of Nimbuzz“, and they “could easily see this flying“.

In addition to Push Notifications, the new update comes with a highly requested feature: Ignore Users in Chat-Rooms and a redesigned main menu.

This update comes with a fix  for our Facebook solution. With the implementation of the official Facebook Connect APIs,  you can now login to your Facebook account right from inside the app, no need for any extra steps.

We also added a very special feature for our Indonesian Telkomsel users: Free text (SMS) notifications via Nimbuzz Ping.

Not everyone owns a smartphone.

As a matter of fact, there are 4 billion “feature phones” in use today. But not every feature phone allows you to stay connected to your friends the same way smartphones do.

That’s why we launched Nimbuzz Ping!

Nimbuzz Ping let’s you receive free text notifications when Nimbuzz friends are trying to connect with you. You will appear online to your friends even if you have Nimbuzz turned off on your mobile phone.
