O2 releases official TU Go app for Windows Phone

UK mobile operator O2 has released an official TU Go (opens in new tab) app for Windows Phone, enabling consumers to participate in this latest beta program. TU Go essentially allows customers to use their mobile phone number through Wi-Fi so everyone is covered thanks to their immediate local network.

Available for O2 monthly subscribers, TU Go will work on any Wi-Fi network in the world and across multiple devices. This is an ideal solution for those who find themselves running out of battery on one smartphone and desperately needs to pick up the call or SMS conversation on another (or even a PC, tablet).

Some highlighted features:

  • Constant coverage – choose between your mobile network (GSM), Wi-Fi or fixed Internet for incoming and out going calls and messages.
  • Simple – TU Go's easy to use interface syncs to combine your timeline across all your devices.
  • Travel friendly – use TU Go abroad when connected to a local Wi-Fi network on any compatible device. It'll work, and you'll be charged, as if you were in the UK.
  • There when you need it – expecting an important call? Need to access your voicemail? Now you need never miss a conversation.TU Go frees your number to work over Wi-Fi on up to five other devices, so you'll always stay connected.

It's worth noting that this is a beta app and O2 is asking that users provide feedback on the network's community forum (opens in new tab). On O2? Give the app a download today.

  • Windows Phone is perpetually a beta :(
  • Great app, hopefully a windows 8 version isn't too far off. You get double message notifications for txt and calls if have notifications toggled on in the app. Calls worked great.
  • Do you have to have the app open to receive calls?
  • Finally!
  • Good stuff seems great so far
  • Here in Argentina this app is working a long time ago.. I think it's a good solution that Movistar gave to the problem.
  • Great News, it took a while, but they finally released a Windows Phone version!!! First they released Cyan moderately in good time, now the TU Go App, Hopefully they will carry on when it comes to Denim!!!!
  • Yes, great to see this from O2, makes being an O2 customer great again, us WP users are finally getting parity. When they release Visual Voicemail for non-branded Lumia phones, I'll be complete. Kudos O2.
  • Good - this is really useful, when it works!
  • This was released a few days ago. If you have trouble registering, register on another platform then login.
  • O2 is the windows friendly network, i have stuck with them for some time due to this :)
  • One small thing, the TU Go app is only for Pay Monthly customers not PAYG.
  • Really good app, got the app on my crap-pad and use quite a bit as I move between devices
  • Tugo is also available in movistar Argentina! But as you don't care for South America you don't mention it!
  • Now I just need a mac version. Also how do you suggest news tips? I got this the other day but didn't know who to tell
  • I sent in the tip, you just use the link on the front-page of the website or if you have the WPCentral app, swipe to the "Browse" menu and "tip us" is the option at the bottom left.
  • Crashes a lot so far.... Hopefully it will improve #Beta
