Video calling features has vastly improved over the last couple of months with large updates and new versions. Innumerable new and old rivals like Skype, Google, Fring, Tango, Oovoo etc. are battling for the crown to win the most number of active users. Skype has been quite a great choice for the PC-based systems but it couldn’t keep up with the ongoing competition.
Let’s look at some of the top class video calling apps for Android devices.
1. Google Hangouts
It has a lot of intuitive features like Free Group Video calling support, text messages. It can take over your SMS stock app. You can manage all of your communication with this app. All you need is a Gmail account. The best part of this app is its ability to synchronize quickly and efficiently as well. You can communicate with up to 10 people. This app supports multiplatform including desktop, iOS, windows phone as well.
No one can forget the mighty Skype. It’s one of the most popular video calling software in PC. It has years of experience which makes it pretty great app. But, it lacks in free group calling support for Android. The speed is great with high quality video but sometimes the calls drop frequently.
It’s one of the best apps out there for Android which supports full crystal clear video support. It supports high resolution videos in 1:1 video chats. You can also share video status messages with your friends. This feature is known as ooVies. The creative and unique filters can be achieved in video calling or even recording. You can not only make video calls but also voice calls or even instant messages to your buddies. You can make group video calls with up to 12 people.
From the dawn of Symbian phones, Fring supported video calling feature. It’s one the earliest video calling app and now it’s available for Android as well. You can connect with up to 4 people and make video calls with other Fring users all over the world.
Tango, the latest name in video calling app has made quite a nice impression within the shortest time. The best feature of Tango is that you won’t need to sign up or anything. It registers your ID with your phone number and then you’re good to go. The video calling support is great and it finds out your friends using your contact list easily. It supports group call up to 50 people together.
It got best communication app of 2013.
Different people will suggest you different apps which suits according to their needs and views. But, from our experience and views we chose Google’s latest update to Gtalk (currently known as Hangouts). It’s been quite a long time since Google has finally seen succeeded with their messenger. It’s a big question in PC-Web browser though. But we’re seeing some massing improvements of Hangouts and lots of bug fixes as well. Hangouts is the only app that seems to have all the necessary tools that you actually need in any Android device. In Overall, Google Hangouts is the one which deserves the award for being the most integrated platform for chatting. That’s why we kept it in the first place of the best video chat app for Android.
