You can video call on Android with these apps (Video)

Video conferencing and even personal video calling has been around for quite some time. And although Apple may have put popularized it in mobile, it hardly invented the first video calling mobile app. In fact, there were a bevy of video calling applications available long before FaceTime came to be.

Alas, Apple managed to create a proprietary video calling platform that’s only available to its own customers. And if you’re using something other than an iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac, no matter how many times your mother asks you to FaceTime her, it’s not going to happen. You simply cannot FaceTime on Android. However, there are plenty of cross-platform alternatives available to most Android smartphones that will allow you to video call practically anyone from anywhere.

Be sure to check out the video below for some of the best mobile video calling solutions.
