The bad news is that mobile chatting has not yet proved to be very lucrative for some types of chatting, and the rush to produce outstanding apps has not materialized. But don’t despair. Whether you’re an Android or Apple user, there are some existing chatting apps that provide great features.
Video chatting takes several forms. The two most common video chatting services are random chatting and social chatting.
Random chatting, which has proved to be very unprofitable, hasn’t seen much improvement since the introduction of this chatting genre. Omegle is the notable exception and they’ve created an Android app to access their site via mobile devices.
Social chatting on the other hand is big business. And apps related to social services have garnered the attention of savvy entrepreneurs, so there’s plenty of research and development devoted to this category. Here are some of the top contenders in the social video chatting field:
- Kakao Talk (For Both Android and iPhone)
- Skype (For Both Android and iPhone)
- Fring (For Both Android and iPhone)
- OoVoo (For Android)
- Rounds (For iPhone)
- Imo Instant Messneger (For Both Android and iPhone)
- Tango Voice and Video (For Both Android and iPhone)
- Viber (For iPhone)
