How Talkatone Works
The major functionality of Talkatone is free call and SMS to any US or Canadian number. This is built on the functionality of Google Voice. First, you are required to acquire a Google Voice number. This is free anyway! This will in turn becomes your Talkatone number. Your Calls and Texts from the Talkatone app will display this Google Voice number as caller and when people dial your Google Voice number, you have the opportunity of choosing either to receive the call as a regular mobile phone call (which uses cell minutes) or through the Talkatone application. Talkatone allows calls or text on Wi-Fi and 4G. It is also possible to make calls and send SMS to other Talkatone user without a Google account. You can as well import your Facebook contacts through Facebook messenger without possessing a Google Account.
