There are several options for setting up video chats on a smartphone now, but if you want something cross-platform that supports more than two parties per call, you’ll be checking out Fring. The app introduced four-way video chat in an update this past April. A new version of its Android release, available as of today, makes several changes, including support for some new phones.
Fring 188.8.131.52 now lets you make video calls with the Samsung Galaxy S II and Droid Charge, T-Mobile’s G2X from LG, and the Nexus S when running last month’s Android 2.3.4 release. Even if your smartphone already supported Fring, now there’s a chance that more of your friends will be able to get in on the video chat action with you, and isn’t that the point of four-way calling like Fring offers?
Besides new device support, there are assorted, non-specific changes to the app. Those include bugfixes, some “quality improvement”, and what the developer claims are clearer-sounding voice calls (after all, the app isn’t video-only). The new build of Fring is available for download now, free as always, with the option to buy call credits for calling outside the app’s network.
