The call is then accessible via each person’s browser (or via the i OS app). If your friends and family are also using the app, then text, voice, and video calls are completely free, though the app will use your data if you’re not connected to Wi-Fi.

Like Whats App, you can make domestic and international calls too.

Like a lovechild between Whats App and Skype, oo Voo is a free cross platform (Android, i OS, Windows, Web) app that allows free calls to other oo Voo users, and paid calls to landlines and mobiles.

You can call landlines and mobiles from Hangouts, too.

Almost all calls to Canada and the US are entirely free from any country where Hangouts is available.

If you want something with even more features, try out Viber. A direct competitor to Skype, offering free user-to-user calls and (mostly) free calls within the U. While you could use Hangouts as just another messaging app, that’s the last thing we need.

It’s first-and-foremost a way for you to voice and video call up to 10 contacts (simultaneously) on i OS, and Android.The regular Google Hangouts Web app is pretty impressive, too.On your smartphone, this works over data (or Wi-Fi if you’re connected), so calls over Hangouts do not use any of your included minutes.For a long time, Skype was the world leader when it came to Vo IP apps.It was so popular, in fact, that “Skyping” became a verb.You can choose to either have a voice or video call, and you can also share your screen.
