The plans are available to Etisalat subscribers (prepaid, postpaid and e-Life home broadband). Etisalat Internet Calling Plans are an add-on to customers’ existing Etisalat mobile and/or eLife service. There are two types of Internet Calling plans currently available:

Upon subscribing to the Internet Calling Plans, Etisalat says its subscribers will be able to use unlimited Video and Voice calls to their family and friends who have downloaded the same app located anywhere in the world. There will be no extra charges as long as Etisalat customers have an active internet connection (Home broadband or Mobile data) to use with this service.

Currently, C’ME and BOTIM meet the UAE regulatory framework requirements to offer VoIP calling in the UAE. New VoIP apps may be added to the list of supported apps once they meet the UAE regulatory framework requirements. The prices for the ‘Internet Calling Plans’ do not include VAT.

Calling all creative minds! WhatsApp is testing a new feature that uses AI to generate personalized avatars. Imagine yourself as a superhero, chilling on a beach, or even exploring space – the possibilities are endless! WABetaInfo discovered this feature in the latest Android beta update.

Here’s the tech behind the magic: a combo of user images, text descriptions, and Meta’s powerful AI, Llama. “Take photos of yourself once, then imagine yourself in any setting from the forest to outer space,” reads the screenshot on WhatsApp. The way it works is in the Meta AI Chat: users can type “Imagine in…” or “@Meta AI imagine me…” as a text prompt.
