Video calling is a great way of keeping in touch with your loved ones. You get to see their faces and hear their voices, which makes it a lot easier to communicate. There are numerous apps that can be used for that. However, most iOS users prefer to use FaceTime as it offers a top-notch experience and it already comes pre-installed on their device. However, if you are looking for something new, there are plenty of alternatives that you can use.
Skype is considered by many the original video calling app. It works great with a large number of people, and it supports up to 24 people for one call. The app is available for both iOS and Android, as well as PC. Skype receives new features constantly, and the last one is the ability to record, share and save video calls.
Viber offers an encrypted platform which means that all your chats are safe and no one else can access them. The app can be used for video chatting, as well as placing audio calls to landlines. Nonetheless, that last feature is available for a small fee. Viber lets you create chat rooms and text using stickers, emoji and gifs.
WhatsApp is hands down one of the most popular texting apps. However, the app also comes with a video calling feature. WhatsApp is simple to use and it has many other useful functions that can be used for chatting.
Messenger used to be the chat for Facebook. However, back in 2014 the app separated from Facebook and it can now be used on its own. The app allows you to make a video call at any time and it comes with many entertaining features, such as face filters.
