MTN decision to rival the great chat messengers we have in Nigeria and worldwide: WhatsApp and Telegram, made them create a new app called “Ayoba” which has same interface as its rivals.
On the app, you can send and receive messages from your contacts, chat with your friends, transfer money, create groups and join channels for updates.
One great feature of MTN Ayoba is the SMS integration which allows users of the app to send messages to anyone even if they are not using the app. That’s the major difference.
The app is super optimized for memory efficiency and it’s super smaller in size when compared to WhatsApp.
The app has been in Beta stage for months before its launch and we are looking forward to it for perfection.
Some Key Features Of MTN Ayoba Messenger App Are:
1. Is Free To Use: You only need data to message your friends and send files on the app and MTN can however provide the data for free.

Where To Download MTN Ayoba App?
The app has over 500k downloads on playstore and South Africans are already enjoying the features of the app but is yet to officially launch in Nigeria where MTN has over 60 million subscribers base. I think MTN is finding the right time to surprise Nigerians with the app but don’t worry, I have the download link, and here you have it. Download MTN Ayoba App.
The chat interface looks smooth and I have even created a group chat on the app, you can join Flushreview on Ayoba. They are yet to enable the feature where users will be able to create channels like Telegram for business purposes or easier communication with users but starting with group is still better.
You can backup your chats to cloud and import contact lists and media download is not greater than 20MB, unlike Telegram that supports more than 1.5GB media file. Anyway, it’s good for the start.
