VoxOx is featured as one of five free services in the “VoIP and conferencing” category, which also includes Skype.
PC Magazine features editor Eric Griffith writes: “Every type of communication you can imagine is part of the VoxOx unified hub: phone, e-mail text chat, SMS texting, social networking, you name it—even, dare we say it, faxing. It also translates for you on the fly and takes messages. The product of a phone company, VoxOx provides you with a free phone number to use for incoming calls.”
Additionally, Departures, a luxury travel publication, has named VoxOx to its “2011’s Best Gadgets” list, a compilation of the most exciting and innovative tech products to look forward to this year. VoxOx is listed as 2011’s Best Gadget for Communication. The Departures article states:
“Instant messaging, SMS, Skype, email, Facebook: The newly updated VoxOx desktop program puts all those modes of communication into one manageable window so that staying up-to-date with friends and colleagues no longer requires checking multiple devices. In addition, VoxOx offers a bevy of other communication tools, including on-the-fly translation of e-mail. The only charge is for outbound texts, faxes and calls.”
“We’re thrilled to receive not one, but two editorial nods by such distinguished publications as Departures and PC Magazine,” said Bryan Hertz, CEO of Telcentris. “VoxOx is a one-of-a-kind service, and each time we are recognized it reaffirms our commitment to technological innovation and betterment of communications.”
