Video conferencing makes our lives easier. Connecting with people from school and business has also been made possible because of video conferencing. In line with this, Android also allows its devices to do just that. In no particular order, here are 5 Great Android apps for Amazing Video conferencing:
1. Qik Video Connect
The Android Qik’s interface is different with that of its iOs counterpart. The Android version has four blocks on its screen each representing a certain function with its description. Its functions include Video Chat, Record and Share, Video Mail and Video Gallery. Although the Android version differs with the iOs version in its appearance, both have the same functionality.
Aside from its Video Chat function, another thing which you may find interesting is the Video mail. It’s just like the Voice Mail but this time, it uses video. An advantage of the Video Mail is that the quality of the video is better than that of the live video chat since it is pre-recorded. The bad news is that you may not be able to use this service for free after June 1 since they will be charging an annual fee for this service.
With Qik, you can also upload your videos to the web and share them via email and SMS. Although Qik has good features, it may not have the best video chat experience. Right now, however, Qik is one of the best options among Video Conferencing Android apps.
The good thing about Tango is that it allows it users to have a cross-platform video chat. That means you can have a video chat with a friend using an iOs even if you’re on Android-very cool indeed! Although Fring has this capability, Tango scores more points when it comes to video quality and ease of use. With Tango, one can also make calls over 3G and 4G networks as well.
Finding your friends using Tango is also made convenient by this app. Tango can search through your Android or iPhone Address book for friends who are on Tango and adds them into the app’s contact list. Also, setup of this app is quite easy.
Fring is user-friendly. Its interface is neat and not cluttered. Even a first-time user wouldn’t have a problem getting to know the app. Video Quality is good although not as good as FaceTime (iPhone). Its audio still has more room for improvement. The good thing, though, is that it can be downloaded from the Android website for free.
4. Knocking Live Video
Knocking Live Video lets its user share live video from his phone to another one’s. This Video-sharing app used to be available only in the iPhone. Now, it’s in Android-good news for Android enthusiasts! This is a cross-platform app which means that an Android user can share live videos to a family or friend who’s using the iPhone. It’s one of the most popular social network apps today and you can download this app for free.
Skype is undeniably one of the best in VoIP apps around. Unfortunately, Android Skype doesn’t have video conferencing with the exception of 4G phones. A lot are hopeful though that this service would extend to non-4G phones in the near future.
