Tel Aviv based Yallo wants to reinvent the phone call. The company's founding principle is based on the premise that much like Whatsapp and SnapChat change text messaging, the phone call hasn't changed in decades.

"The idea is simply to turn the phone call into a rich platform that comes with everything," said Yosi Taguri, Yallo's CTO

Yallo's app automatically reconnects dropped calls, saves a call or shares it. Users can summon a group call with a single click or even interrupt a call when a priority caller needs you. For example, if your child is a priority caller, he or she will be able to interrupt your call. Whether this is a good thing, is up to the users themselves to decide.

Funding: Yallo closed $4 million in Series A funding in March 2015 and the investment was led by Carmel Ventures, a member of the Viola Group. In the coming months, Yallo will boost its marketing efforts to fully launch the product.
