Non member video chat
The killer feature of Fring is that it supports group video chat for up to four users simultaneously.
Like Skype, you can call landlines and other phone numbers for discounted rates – but our interest today is in video chat.
Chances are that some, if not most of your friends are already using Skype on their PC’s or Macs.
Snapchat added video calling earlier this year, while Whats App just made the feature available widely to the public last month.
Facebook today announced that its Messenger app is now capable of performing group video calls with up to 50 participants.
For the first six participants, the app will stream everyone’s camera feed to one another in a grid-like view.
And Google Hangouts’ consumer limit on video chat participants is 10, not 25, people.
You’ve got the new i Pad, you have tried out your front facing camera with Face Time, but now you realize that many of your friends don’t live in the i OS world.
Still, Facebook’s engineering capabilities on this front appear to be far ahead of other players in the video chat field.
