7 Free Video Calling Applications for Smartphones: Each to Match a Different Set of Requirements

Sticking to paid phone calls alone is a thing of the long gone past. Now you can make a majority of your calls free of cost, and include other cool features like video and data sharing while on call with your friends from around the world. The following seven apps are a result of advanced custom application development and make it temptingly easy for you to download and use them for the majority of your video calls.

1)                  Skype

The most popular video calling platform of the day, Skype is one app where you are likely to find nearly all your friends active, either through their PCs or smartphones. The video calling features of Skype make it easy to use regularly. You can connect the app to watch videos on phones, tablets, PCs and TVs. It allows you the flexibility to use both front and rear cameras of any of your devices. You can make calls to landlines and mobiles using Skype for small credits.

However, you may face a bit of trouble with the videos if the mobile Internet signal is relatively weak. And Skype is available only for Android 2.1 platforms and above. You may have to look for another app in case you are using any of the lower Android platforms.

2)                  Tango

Tango is great for both voice calls and video calls. It is gradually gaining immense popularity among both Android and Apple users. The app is also available for Windows PCs, and is likely to develop a version to support Mac as well.

It offers a good call and video quality, and is a practicable alternative to Skype in case your phone’s OS is not compatible with the latter.

3)                  Viber

An app for those who like to share moments, contacts, emoticons and locations, Viber is a versatile video calling app available on nearly all popular platforms: Windows, Mac, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone and Android. The video conferencing facility of Viber is particularly awesome, allowing up to 40 members at a time. Besides voice and video, you can also stick to an efficient text messaging service alone through Viber.

4)                  Fring

Fring is a voice and video calling app available for both PCs and smartphones. It gives you an amazing video quality, and is one of the greatest competitors to Skype.

The most striking feature about Fring that is also contributing to its growing popularity is its cheap rate chart for paid calls to mobile and landline numbers locally and internationally. At a minimum call rate of just 1 cent per minute, Fring is clearly one of the cheapest and best phone call apps available for Android platforms.

5)                  ooVoo

The USP of the cool ooVoo is that it integrates seamlessly with your Facebook account. Great for youthful groups, the video calling app lets you conference 12 people at a time. Text messaging works pretty well and you can text even while a call is active. Application developers of Fring have kept the interface marvelously simple and fun to use.

6)                  Google Hangouts

If you are using GTalk, Gmail, or Google+ on your phone, you can make an easy switch to incorporating the new feature called Hangouts. Group calling is limited to 10 people; messaging is easy and you can easily access shared images through a Google+ Album that automatically stores all images you share with your friends and vice versa.

7)                  Camfrog

Camfrog is just the thing for you if you are looking at expanding your social network. Meet like-minded strangers on the social chatting platform, video chat with them, and add them to your Camfrog friends’ list. You can upload a detailed profile of yourself on Camfrog for new people to see.

Group video chat service quality is great, and you can choose from a variety of public chat rooms to enter and find friends.

Hope you find the app that meets all your chatting needs and you never feel disconnected again!
