Roumeliotis also expect to see Apple & Google starting to add phone numbers in search results, for example, Maps that allow customers to text those places directly. The trouble of searching for numbers via a run through telephone hopefully can be sidestepped. Small businesses can access some of the essential features NumberAI. The company might be able to help their businesses drastically, and they could even end up buying more premium products.

Roumeliotis stated that Whatsapp is not a very big player in the U.S, but the Facebook messenger is, but it is limited for specific interactions only. “But if you are on your iPhone and you are iMessaging, and you have friends that are on Android, the connector – that independent connector – is the phone number. While you have folks like Apple who would obviously want to be the center of the universe, you still need the phone number to connect. That business phone number is the lifeline to their customers. They would never give that up. We see much more resistance in giving that up.” Explained Roumeliotis.
