What’s better? To hear the words “I miss you” or to look into someone’s eyes and feel it too? If you’ve ever connected to a friend or loved one via a Skype call or while using Apple’s FaceTime, you already know the answer.
To help you make the most out of that front-facing camera on your smartphone or tablet, we reviewed seven mobile video chat apps. Some apps make video calls across the Android-Apple divide, others stream video calls with up to four people, and some send and receive video mail messages and enable calls to landlines anywhere on the globe. Take a look and see which app offers the best combination of features and video quality.
FaceTime is easy to use and makes high-quality video calls between Apple devices, but only with a Wi-Fi signal handy.
