Bolt Version 1.0

Today we are very excited to publicly release Bolt version 1.0, the first version of Bolt to include free calls between Bolt users.

After updating to Bolt 1.0, a new "Bolt" phone number will appear in the details view of any contact in your address book who is also a Bolt user. Simply call that number from within the Bolt app to talk for free, whether the person you're calling is across the room or across the globe. All you need is an internet connection.

But of course this new and greatly improved version of Bolt doesn't prevent you from making normal phone calls to all of your non-Bolt contacts. It's still the same great calling app it was before, but with a free calling layer on top.

We hope you find the new functionality useful, and of course we value any and all feedback. So please send us an email at if you think of anything.

This is a big milestone for us, but we're just getting started. We're looking forward to continuing the journey towards carrier freedom with you.
