Glo livens up SMS

Glo Mobile has introduced SMSes with voice messages, emoticons and flashing detail.

Described as athe first service of its kind in sub Saharan Africa, the Glo Super SMS costs the same as normal SMSes.

Glo’s General Manager for Prepaid Marketing, Ashutosh Tiwary, says the Super SMS user can compose a text message to a friend, and add a voice message to it to create more realism. Similarly, he may decide to send just a voice message with graphics to enhance the communication.

According to Tiwary: ''With the Super SMS, Glo subscribers can express their emotions, say a lot more than words can express, add fun and colour to text messages, thereby making SMS a lot more fun and expressive, all at no extra cost''.
