    "A good app to make international calls, all you need is your wifi to work. Sometimes the calls don't always go through the first time though. It is annoying when people add you to group chats and then you starting getting lots of notifications. You should have to approve being added first. "

    "This app feels really solid but I'm not sure why it's better than using a messing service call. If you need to call actual phone calls, this seems like a great bet though."
