Fring, the mobile communication service that pioneered mobile video over internet calls in 2009, today announces the world’s first mobile group video calls for iPhone & Android devices.
With fring’s Group Video calling, four fring friends can now share a simultaneous video call, for free, on their mobile phone (on Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G) using fring’s proprietary DVQ™ technology, that delivers the highest quality video for all four participants. fring is the 1st company to bring mobile Group Video calling across platforms, for free, so that users can see all their friends at the same time, and on one screen. fring’s service unshackles users from their PCs, and frees them from heavy PC-based Group Video calling fees. “fring leap-frogs sluggish, expensive PC Group Video Calling solutions by giving users the world’s 1st mobile Group Video service, free. There is no reason why users need to run home to their PC in order to have a ‘spontaneous’ video call with their friends and family. Users love seeing all their friends at the same time, on one screen, but want to be able to do it, when and where they want, “said Avi Shechter, Co-Founder & CEO of fring. “Just as fring was the 1st to liberate video calls from the PC back in 2009, we are the 1st to give users the ability to see all their friends on their phone at the same time, anywhere. This video call revolution lets fringsters be free to get together, wherever.”
In addition to free Group Video calling, fring enables users to make free 2 way video calls, voice calls and chat with friends on Android, iPhone/iPod touch & Nokia Smartphones.
fring group video is available from Apple’s App Store and the Android Market.
“Good news for Samsung Galaxy Ace users. Both Tsar3000.com and Sam’s Firmware has leaked a Gingerbread ROM for the device. This is only beta leaks so we can’t promise on the quality control. Several forum users reported that their Galaxy Ace does have improvement in its speed and graphic performance. Unfortunately, there’s problem on the WiFi connection. It is highly recommended to unroot the device and backup all the data in the phone.” via slashphone.com
