Ayoba is an all-in-one app that allows you to chat, call, read, play, and listen to music.

With ayoba you can chat with anyone regardless of whether they have the ayoba app or not. Also, MTN subscribers can chat with other ayoba users on other mobile networks.

Users who do not have the app will receive an instant message as SMS from an ayoba user and will be able to respond via SMS and it will display within the ayoba user’s chat in the app.

Ayoba is an open platform open to creators and publishers to boost third-party innovation. This ensures that we offer a rich diversified experience on the platform through microapps and channels, enabling us to deliver more value to our users, empower local developers and content creators and create connections between our creators and their audiences.
