PLDT recently launched another new app to keep people even more connected with friends and family: heyÜ, an all-in call service from PLDT that connects one through the Internet and lets subscribers make NDD or IDD calls to other devices at low rates.
Putting a face to this new app is heyÜ brand ambassador hunkie Brazilian Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga who was among the first users of the app and who was raving about it at the launch. The 24-year-old Daniel shares, “I’ve lived here in the Philippines since I was 16 years old. Constant communication is really important to me especially because most of my family is in Brazil. I speak to my mom every day.”
Aw. But enough of dreamy Daniel and more of how you can benefit from heyÜ, too:

heyÜ is open for Android devices such as telpads, tablets, and smartphones that is why people using it, or those who has been making calls from heyÜ user to another.
