Securus Technologies has announced that their Video Visit app has just passed the 65,000 download mark. The app, available for both Android and iOS, allows friends and families of inmates the ability to video conference right from their mobile device.
The app is only been available for six months on the Android platform where it has over 60,000 downloads. The iOS version has been out for just over a month and has over 5,000 downloads so far.
Russel Roberts, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for Securus, say the mobile app provides users a “more convenient way to visit incarcerated loved ones.” The Video Visit app makes inmate phone calls and visits, “more convenient for everyone involved,” he says.
Along with video conferencing the Video Visit app allows users to sync video visitation details directly to their calendars and receive notifications of upcoming visits. It also lets the user check the strength of their Wi-Fi signal to ensure the highest video quality.
The Video Visit app can be found in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. It is a free app and can be used on most Android phones and tablets as well as Apple iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.
