Nimbuzz updates its Android app with HD voice capabilities
Nimbuzz, the popular free VoIP/chat/conference calling/file sharing app, announced that its latest 2.0.2 version now supports high-definition voice quality for talks over its network. The solution that the company is using, is based on a new system for peer-to-peer calling, paired with an HD voice codec from Global IP Solutions.

HD voice quality over wireless networks promises crystal clear phone talk, as well as fewer dropped calls, using the so-called Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB) audio codec technology over 3G. There have been only a few mobile networks over in Europe, which support the HD voice technology, but with the native support of AMR-WB in the latest version of Android - 2.3 Gingerbread - we are positive that more and more will be joining the crystal-clear voice party.

If you want to get in on the action right here, right now, Nimbuzz is giving you that option, so you don't have to wait for the telcos to get around the HD voice quality calling service. On long overseas conference calls in the end you have trouble distinguishing who exactly is talking, so we'd welcome anything to make voices sounding more natural and without static noise. Of note is that Skype is already using a similar wide-band speech solution, called SILK. The HD-voice update to Nimbuzz will be coming soon to iOS, Symbian, and your PC as well.
