As we are a Renowned Mobility provider of the softphone, We would love to provide more knowledge to the users about Linphone. Linphone is basically used for free voice or video calls. It is an open source SIP Phone which can run on any operating system like iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux irrespective to the platform. It makes communication among people easier .it is includes different languages like French, English. It allows us to interact freely with voice, video, and text messaging over the internet.
In Recent years there came many messaging apps which lead to the gradual decline of the standard text messaging. The common and interesting feature of any messaging app is group chat functionality and it is available on most popular Instant messaging apps and is more general in many VoIP applications. Linphone, as a free SIP communication application it aims at providing a free alternative for text communications which allows multiple participants to get involved.
The whole Linphone’s team intensively worked hard for several months to get the new concept of Group Chat and the time has come to announce that the Beta Versions for Linphone iOS and Android are now open to test this exciting function!

Linphone the IETF standards and for signalling it implements many SIP-based RFCs for call establishment and instant messages.
