EE has announced the launch of Smart Number technology in the UK. This allows you to use the same number across multiple devices for calls and texts.
The service initially supports Apple’s iOS devices and it will also support Google’s Android devices in the future. The technology will let you make and receive calls from the same number on devices like tablets, laptops, smart watches and more.
If a customer leaves their smartphone at home, their phone battery goes dead, or even if they want to go away for the weekend with fewer devices – they’ll still be able to use other connected devices to make and receive calls and messages. The number will be the same, so friends and family will be able to call them just like they can on their smartphone, and they’ll know exactly who is trying to get hold of them.
Max Taylor, Managing Director of Marketing, EE “We’ve made it our mission to give our customers amazing new technologies that make the most of our award-winning network to help keep them connected, wherever they go and whatever they want to do. Our new smart number technology is a great example of how we’re helping customers to seamlessly connect their favourite devices – whether on laptops, tablets or smartwatches, even if they’re away from their smartphone.”
