Quick free cam chat
As well as instantly calling, texting, or emailing someone on a mobile device, video chatting is increasingly used to stay in touch.
Video chat via your smartphone or tablet makes it easier to contact friends, family, and business associates.
Google is releasing a new video calling app later this summer.
It's called Duo, and it's probably the fastest and simplest video calling app I've ever seen.
In case you are in a chat session with a friend and want to make a video call, click the "Video Call" icon on the horizontal menu on the top of the chat window.
It was so popular, in fact, that “Skyping” became a verb.
You can mute your microphone, you can flip the camera. When it was over, Erik Kay, director of engineering, communications products, couldn't help but point that out: "You noticed the demo was super short and that's because that's all it needs to be." The whole app on Android weighs in at around five megabytes.
So don't let the lack of bells and whistles fool you, because the engineering team at Google spent its time on something more important: making Duo crazy fast.
Check your hair, then tap one of the giant circled photos below to start a call — or scroll up on the panel to see more contacts.
You call, the person on the other end of the line answers, and you're having a video chat. It took all of five minutes for Google to show me the app last week.
