OK, there's plenty of hyperbole in that statement, but you can't deny that phone calls are going the way of the dodo.
Video chatting's all the rage right now, and it's only going to get more popular as front-facing phone cameras become more common.
Until recently, however, there haven't been many good ways to video chat using your smartphone—the services just weren't mature enough.
The latest crop, however, is making up for lost time.
Apps like Skype and oo Voo, for instance, allow you to place quality video (and voice) calls between Android and i OS devices, not to mention desktops.
ANDROID oo Voo is the best video chat app for Android and the best multi-platform video calling solution there is.
Quality-wise, it's not quite on par with Face Time, but Face Time is limited to i OS and OSX and can only place calls over Wi-Fi.
oo Voo is the best multi-platform video calling solution there is.
Quality-wise, it's still not quite on par with Face Time, but it reaches more platforms across more networks.
Not only that, but they work over 3G and 4G connections as well.
So regardless of whichever device you're using, you're bound to find a great video chat app on this list that works for you.
Video chats are not only convenient – we’re always with our smartphones so we can hold a video chat wherever or whenever – it also offers the chance to talk to someone else face-to-face. While most smartphones come equipped with built-in video software, they may not function across all platforms.
Since nearly everyone has a smartphone capable of handling video chats, it’s no surprise more people are discussing business ventures and opportunities via their phones.
After all, where there's a will and a webcam, there's a way.
