The new service is available for Android smartphones for now and can be used on any internet browser or cell network. The cool thing about this new app is that anyone can receive your messages, they don’t even have to have PPL Connect app on their device. Your message will appear as if it came from your phone number, even though you sent it from the PPL Connect app website.
You can also make phone calls with PPL Connect app: just go their website, use your personal phone number and make the call. You don’t even have o have your phone turned on.
PPL Connect App – How It Works
Firstly, you have to sign up on PPL Connect through your email or Google+ account. After you signed on they will ask you for your phone number and they will send you a message on your phone and an email with a security confirmation code. After they confirmed your identity, PPL Connect will link your phone to their service.
Although you can make phone calls from your computer, you can’t receive any and each call that you make from the PPL Connect app will cost you 3 cents and it works only in the U.S and Canada for now.
