  • WhatsApp is available for both iOS and Android. 

  • Creating an account is very simple.

  • Require less data for calling.

  • Manage your chats from your phone and your pc through WhatsApp web.




Telegram:


I would like to call it a super app and king of all apps, by far it’s the best messaging and free video call app. Its simple, fast and secured application is the reason behind the rapidly growing user base in Android and iOS platforms. This app has been one of the top 10 most downloaded video and calling apps with 500 million downloads. A user can create a channel in telegram where he can interact with multiple users (200,000) and share photo, video, documents etc. in the channel, the telegram channel can be useful to school groups, office groups and influencers and content creators to reach their followers at ease.

Telegram messaging app focuses on speed and security. It can be synced to your android as well as iOS smartphone and PC also just with the QR scan. Telegram users need to Enter their phone number to sign up.

  • Telegram has a huge user base and continuously expanding.

  • Fast, simple and secure focus mainly on speed and reliability.

  • Telegram channel can come in handy if you have a huge follower or audience, you name it and you will get every resource in the Telegram channel created by other users.

  • Cross-platform and secure with end-to-end encryption and self-destruct feature. Although you have to manually enable that.

  • The best feature is you can delete the chat from other user ends also.




Signal:


The signal messaging app goes trending only after the WhatsApp policy came into the limelight. Signal take pride in its privacy aspect. As of now, it has more than 50 million downloads in Playstore. Signal provide the best free audio and video calling experience. It can transmit high-fidelity messages and users can participate in HD video/audio calling experience.

Signal messaging app focuses on privacy it has state of the art encryption protocol that can keep your conversation within you. Unlike telegram encryption is default in signal encryption occur in audio call as well as in chat, it is fast and reliable even in case of low network coverage areas.

 

Signal require a phone number for signing up, and you can share photos, videos, files etc. A user can also create a group in signal to interact with multiple users.

  • Huge active member more than 50 million

  • Focus on privacy, privacy is the default.

  • Fast and reliable but need further refinement.



Hangouts by Google: 

Hangouts is the official messages app from Google, which also makes it possible to call people via VoIP and video calling. Video calls Hangouts are useful primarily because almost anyone with an Android phone uses the service. After all, if you have a Google Account, you also have a Hangouts account. The quality and use of data, however, are somewhat disappointing. so, the video quality is not very well and consumes relatively much data.

The advantage of Hangouts is that the app is used by a huge audience as well as very easy to use. If you prefer more quality, you better look for another app. A user can get multiple kinds of crazy effects while video calling. You can group chat with up to 150 people at a time and can do video calling with 10 people simultaneously.



Viber:


Viber is perhaps a bit of an unknown name in this list, but the service does have hundreds of millions of users. Viber can send messages, VoIP calls and start video calls. The quality of the video calls is okay and does not take a lot of data. Also, desktop apps are available, which you can also perform Viber video call from your computer or laptop. One drawback: because Viber is not so well known, many people have to tell you about the app to video call them actually using the software.

Viber is actively used in South-Asian countries, for additional security in chat you can hide your chats also.



Skype:


Skype is the most famous video calling app on the list for office and interview perspective and still remain the first choice. Thus, the verb ‘Skype’ actually become a concept for video calling, when it was released the PC version has the video call function and it was really simple. However, the mobile experience of Skype was not good and fluid, so the app does not have a huge download from Google Play, Until the end of 2014. When Microsoft carried out some important changes/updates it result in improvements in the video quality of calls and the stability of the video calls drastically improved.

Although Skype does consume a high amount of megabytes, it is still the best app for video calling for conferences. In addition, many have Microsoft or Google account which is needed for signing up, you can carry crystal clear group video calls and audio calls.



Tango:


The app with the best design is the least known. That’s the story of Tango, this app has drastically changed its UI in recent times it has become a platform for streaming and performing live events or hobby that you want to share online rather than simple video calling apps. Tango video calling works surprisingly well and the quality is still so so, Tango also consumes more data than Hangouts and Viber.

An interesting feature of Tango is the ability to play games while video calling, ranging from chess to butter, cheese and eggs. It is thereby fun while gaming directly to see the reaction of your opponent.

Tango was a  simple video calling app earlier, but the recent updates have made this app complex due to the addition of live stream and other video chat communities. This is the least recommended app for video/audio calling. 



Final verdict: There are plethora of video calling apps available. Each of them have their own pros and cons, some are better in UI and optimization, some are good for privacy, some have amazing feature. In my personal opinion Messenger and Whatsapp are still the most popular way for video calling and audio calling especially in India. However, people have started using Telegram apps a lot and Telegram and Signal are trending in the app market due to their privacy and feature.
