Free Video Calls on iPod, iPhone and Android with Front / Rear Camera Support
Mobile Video Calling is still not so affordable and many a times not utilized to full potential owing to restrictions and hurdles. Thanks to Apps, Smartphones today, allows free video calling over 3G / 4G / WiFi or simply any data connection.
Here I list some cross platform Applications for Mobile Devices which lets free voice calls and Live Video calls over any Data Connection.
Tango is quite new application and my favorite just because of its simplicity. You don’t need to make a profile either; you just install Tango, start it up and you’re ready to make video calls. Tango scans your Contacts and find friends who are already using Tango or you can also invite some from Address Book.
Tango works over both Wi-Fi and 3G and connects iOS (iPhone and iPod Touch) and Android devices. It’s easy to turn video on and off during a Tango call. Also, you can switch between Front Facing and Rear Facing Camera during calls. Visit Tango
I tried it on Airtel EDGE, Video Calling works but continuous streaming is problem, you get Still image many a times so 3G or WiFi is recommended.
Fring is another popular application which is also available for Nokia / Symbian Devices. Fring enables video calls between iOS and Android devices and works over 3G, but it requires you to create a profile and is a little more complex than Tango. Visit Fring
Qik allows you to connect over 3G and WiFi and works for both Android and iOS devices. As of now, Video Chat feature is limited to few Mobile Devices. Along with Video Calling, it supports Video Sharing called as Video Mail which are uploaded to your Qik Account. Visit Qik.
Data Charges apply as per your plan but still I would say it is far cheaper than Video Call rates implemented by Mobile Networks.
