Folks have been using instant messaging on their mobile phones almost as long as there have been mobile phones.There is one particular app that deserves an honorable mention, because I’ve used it for so many years.
Our new messaging puts a focus on what you’ve come to love us for – video. Don’t worry, if you can’t send a video you can send images or text just like always!
If you’re running an Android, you’ve got lots to choose from for sending and receiving IM through your data network instead of using up your allotted texts. When it comes to video chatting, you’re looking at a whole different set of choices.
I’ve run through about 5 different apps that promise to deliver video chatting well, but narrowed it down to two that actually do.
If you have an Android smartphone with camera, you can simply use your phone instead.
Given, the framerate will not be on par with a decent store-bought webcam, but it’s more than good enough for a sporadic video chat. The application is twofold; to use it you’ll need to install both the Android client and the desktop client.
