O2 Launches My O2 on Android

O2 has launched an Android version of its My O2 Android app. Built by Mobile Interactive Group (MIG), the free app enables O2 customers on Pay & Go and Pay Monthly tariffs to securely view their account information and offers the same interface as the iOS version, which has achieved almost 2m downloads since it launched in late 2009.

The app features a simplified ‘Help’ section and a new ‘Extras’ section which gives users information on customer loyalty programmes such as O2 Priority, and other O2-related content. It also enables O2 customers to natively monitor their own data consumption, and manage their data bolt-ons.

“Customer-centred design is at the heart of our approach to self service, and the My O2 app,” says O2 senior self service manager, Niki Fearns. “Our customers have been asking for native data consumption for a long time, and not only can we now fulfil this, but we can also provide the app on another software platform, Android. MIG has followed the success of the first My O2 App for iPhone and created an Android app which combines a great user experience, plus all of the features a customer needs to manage their account via their device.”
