Libon is a voice-over-Internet Protocol application developed for Apple Inc.’s iPhone and Android by Orange S.A.’s subsidiary, Orange Vallée. The application can also be used on iOS and Android. Although Orange developed Libon, it is available for free on the Apple App Store in 90 countries, including in countries where Orange does not have a presence, such as the United States.

The name is an abbreviation of the original name "Life is Better ON". All versions of the app have included "ON" or "Libon" in their names.

History[edit]

Libon was launched in beta for testing in November 2009 before the LeWeb conference. The first version of the app was called "ON Address Book", and was only available on Android.

In March 2011, Orange launched "ON Voicefeed" at the DEMO conference - a visual voicemail iOS app enabling its users to personalize their voicemail greetings by recording them or type them (text-to-speech feature).[1]

On 21 November 2012, Orange added the VoIP feature, updated the UI of the service and rebranded it to "Libon".[2] The new service was announced by Stéphane Richard at the Hello! show.[3]

On 30 June 2016, Libon changed and decided to focus only in VOIP Out. The others features was removed.

  • Voice on IP Out calls to landline and mobile number
