Never miss a call with Yala Chat’s call forwarding feature. You can now receive and pick up any incoming voice call without roaming charge when you are overseas. Subscribe to Yala Chat’s DID number and forward your voice calls to the DID number before you fly. When you are overseas, your incoming voice call will be forwarded to the DID number which will then trigger our system to reach via Yala Chat app when you are connected to WIFI/Cellular data network. Subscription is at S$5/month.
