oFono was jointly announced for Linux by Intel and Nokia on 11 May 2009.[5][2] Nokia has since shipped oFono with the MeeGo-based N9.[6]

After the MeeGo project ended, Intel collaborated with Samsung on a new Linux-based project named Tizen. The first release of Tizen contained another telephony stack[7] but in 2012 they announced to replace that with oFono.[5]

In early 2013 Canonical Ltd announced Ubuntu Touch which also uses oFono.[8]
