New Moya Messenger

In South Africa, we tend to do things that might surprise the world but not us. A recent example of this is the new messaging service, Moya Messenger. A home grown competitor to the well-known Whatsapp, Moya Messenger is different in that it offers users across the four major networks in South Africa unlimited texting without incurring data costs. 

Now considering the whole #DataMustFall movement that has swept the country, this difference is massive and should be welcomed with open arms by South Africans. 

The way it works is by the company having reverse billing agreements in place with Cell C, MTN, Telkom and Vodacom. Simply put, the company pays for your messaging costs. Sounds good right. 

Moya also offers benefits similar to Whatsapp like group chat, end-to-end security with automatic message encryption and automatic contact discovery to connect with friends and family that also use Moya Messenger. 

There are instances where data costs will be incurred however such as messages containing media attachments like photos, videos, voice notes and documents, but, and this is a big but; users of Moyawill be alerted to the data costs that will be incurred as a result of sending these types of messages. This means if the option is available users can switch to WiFi or continue and incur the data costs, the choice is theirs. That’s inspired! 

Currently however, Moya Messenger is only available on Android devices, but that should change soon enough. 

Overall though, Moya Messenger makes the sayings "Local is Lekker” and "Proudly South African” come to life right on your cell phone! 

If you would like to give it a try, you can download the app for Android from the Google Play Store.
