Toway webcam chat
Okay, so now for the real head scratcher: video chatting people who don’t have Facebook and use a different platform than you. The obvious choices here are going to be Skype and Hangouts.
They’re both available for pretty much every major platform out there—Skype is on Windows, Android, Mac, and i OS; while Hangouts is available on Android, i OS, and the web.
Its text chat is basic, much like the older IM-style Google Talk app, but Hangouts' high-quality videos with 25 participants more than made up for that.
Hangouts' video calls are still there, but if you're working with a team and have scheduled meetings, is the app to use. You'll book appointments first in Google Calendar, then open meet.and jump on the call when it's time.
For the most part, Meet is the same as Hangouts' video calls—only with a fresh new design focused just on video chat.
There's no text chat—that's saved for the companion Hangouts Chat app.
With dozens of great video and text chat apps for teams–each of which include quite similar features–the deciding factor is often down to the way your team works.
Google Hangouts quickly became that default, easiest-to-use video calls option for many teams thanks to it running in your browser and being deeply integrated in Google's other apps.
Vidyo & Fuze are two Companies to be observed in this space.
(But seriously, how about cross-platform Face Time, Apple? We tested a number of apps on Android, i Phone, Windows, and mac OS to find the best one for any given situation. Look, I’ll cut the chase here: Facebook Messenger is a great way to video chat with pretty much everyone you know.
You might not have realized Facebook has video chat, but it does—and it’s surprisingly good.
That would be my recommendation in that situation, though the other options mentioned here would also work.
There might be only one real criteria for the best chat app for your team: How easy it is for everyone to use.
You’ll only need an applicable account to use either of them.
