¡Hola! Media Group, LLC announced that it has partnered with PeerMe, Inc, a peer-to-peer voice communication technology company, to provide free, unlimited voice communications over the Internet to Spanish speaking internet users world-wide. Targeting users in the United States, Spain, Central and Latin America, the Spanish version joins the previously available English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese versions.

“We are excited to partner with ¡Hola! Media Group to bring PeerMe’s technology to the Spanish speaking Internet user, as they are the fastest growing population in the United States and in the world, with many family ties in and outside the United States. The Latin American population can easily benefit from PeerMe’s free and easy to use voice services,” said Tom Lasater, founder and CEO of PeerMe. “PeerMe is committed to enabling online communities and helping to bring people around the world together through the use of our easy-to-use technology. What sets PeerMe apart is our technology, which is aimed at voice enabling the Internet,” said Lasater. Announcing the enhancement of the ¡Hola! Spanish portal, Maura Lozano-Yancy, founder and CEO of ¡Hola! Media Group, said, “we’re proud to be the leader in this area. With the availability of free and easy downloads, either through our bi-lingual Hola! Portal, http://www.Hola-Connect.us or directly at http://www.PeerMe.com/Hola, we can supply world-wide to Spanish-dominant or English-dominant Internet users with free PC to PC calling and instant messaging services. Keep in mind that multi-language options are also available, the Spanish version joins the previously available English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese versions, ” said Lozano-Yancy.

“Similar to the impact of mobile telephones, the software available at http://www.PeerMe.com/Hola and http://www.Hola-Connect.us allows computer users to communicate with their network of friends, family and colleagues anywhere, anytime – free “en Español” or in their language of choice.” PeerMe’s design integrated into the ¡Hola! Spanish and bi-lingual portals delivers a solution with our community in mind, it can be a purely Spanish or purely bi-lingual language experience," said Lozano-Yancy.
