MagicJack WiFi Update: Now To Be Called 2014 MagicJack Plus


Although there has been very little news recently from VocalTec about their newest product, the magicJack WiFi, the company will be releasing the product in the very near future and with a new name, now to be called the 2014 magicJack Plus.

With previous new models of the Magic Jack products, including the original and magicJack Plus, the anticipated release date has typically been well prior to its actual release date.  With a previously anticipated release date within the first quarter the 2013, it is more likely that the device will be released by the beginning of the third quarter of this year and end up very different than initially expected.


This is expected to be one of the most complex and sophisticated pieces of VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technology that has ever been released, which could be part of the reason why the product has experienced such a long delay in its release.  The magicJack plus 2014 features are expected to make it much more useful for home use, but it is also expected to be much more practical than previous devices for small business owners as well.  Increased power of the device will allow it to more easily handle increased telephones.  In fact, the device is expected to be able to allow for connection to dozens of telephones without any issues.

Although there are many other companies that provide VoIP phone services to their customers for a relatively low cost, the combination of the extraordinarily low cost and the exceptionally high call quality has made the Magic Jack devices the best devices on the market today.  Other companies may be able to provide low cost OR high call quality, but very few can match the combination of these two features that have been provided by Magic Jack.  This trend is more than likely to continue with the newest product and their continued offering of their free magicJack app.

Because of this potential for application in commercial industries, business owners are likely to flock to the device.  If the new 2014 magicJack plus has costs to consumers that are anywhere near where costs have previously been, small business owners can expect to save thousands of dollars each year on their phone plans.  This can help increase the profits of the business, and help encourage growth within the company, which is something that most small business owners have been struggling with over the last few years.


We will continue to follow any and all updates from VocalTec Communications about the release of the new device, and will keep our followers updated as well.  For those who are interested in hearing more about other products being released from VocalTec, sign up for the Newsletter in the bottom right corner of this page.  We will be sure to update all of those on the mailing list about any and all developments with regard to the release of any new products.

  1. Just curious Sean – will you make use of the new wi-fi capability once magicJack has activated it? I’ve got an original magicJack I use at home (plugged into a thin client), and I take it with me when traveling – where it picks up wi-fi through the laptop’s antenna. The wi-fi capability may be neat, but I’m more curious to know what other capabilities the new SD and USB ports will provide.
