Best Video Calling Apps

By SANYA GOEL | Price Updated on 25-Jul-2021

It can be difficult to maintain contact with family and loved ones who live far away (which is made more difficult by social separation). When you can't be together in person, video calling apps are a terrific way to spend time together. You should have an excellent video chat program on your phone or computer while calling your boss or attempting to remain in touch with friends and family.

ZOOM

Zoom is the greatest overall choice for a video chat program, and it is popular for job conferences, school classes, and any virtual get-togethers. It works well with both desktop and mobile devices, and you may choose to see only the individual speaking or the entire group. Hosts can also host webinars in which they are the only ones having video and audio. It's free to use, but for three or more users, there's a 40-minute time limit unless you choose one of their paying plans. ZOOM can efficiently work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile. It allows a maximum of 100 users per meeting for the free version.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a widely used messaging program all around the world. You can use it to make voice and video calls for up to four users simultaneously. Since the calls are made using the phone's data plan or via WiFi, they do not consume your phone minutes. Because it has such a wide network, it is the finest option for staying in touch with overseas loved ones. WhatsApp allows a maximum of 4 users. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Google Duo

Google Duo is Google's newest software, and it's ideal for video conversations between Android and iPhone users. Unlike Facetime, Google Duo is perfect for communicating with people who do not have iPhones. The software has an innovative function called "Knock Knock," which allows you to see who is on the other end of the line before taking the call. We also enjoy using Google Hangouts for business calls. Google Duo allows a maximum of 12 users. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is a distinct software that allows you to chat and video call your Facebook pals. The number of users who may participate in video calls is limited to 50, which is larger than the number of persons who can participate in video chats on most social networks. Because your entire extended family most likely already has a Facebook account, it's simple to convince them to join – even if they're not particularly tech-savvy. Facebook Messenger allows a maximum of 50 users. It can efficiently work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Skype

Skype is unrivalled for business calls. In addition to video chats with a maximum of 50 users, Skype's chat feature supports screen sharing and real-time translation. It's very simple to sign up if you already have a Microsoft account. Microsoft Skype allows a maximum of 50 users. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Discord

Discord is a popular tool for individuals to talk while playing video games, but many people are unaware that it also supports video conversations with up to 25 people. Discord provides simple features like the ability to change other users' audio levels in the middle of a call and the option to create various channels for different groups when playing games. Discord is available for desktop or laptop only but is compatible with both Windows and iOS. Additionally, it allows a maximum of 25 users at a time.

Instagram

Instagram is a popular social networking app for viewing photos of celebrities and friends. It offers a chat option that allows you to switch to video in addition to the main broadcast instantly. You can also participate in live video calls with your friends. This app allows a maximum of 6 users for video calls at a given time. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Cisco Webex

Webex is a video conferencing program that has been around since the 1990s; Cisco purchased it in 2007. While it has been chiefly regarded as a commercial program and continues to serve businesses, it does feature a rather generous free version that is worth checking out. During the current epidemic, the freemium version's features have been expanded from 50 to 100 participants, and you can have up to 50 minutes. This app allows screen sharing and recording now as well. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Download App

Google Meet

Meet provides a very simple and quick way to video chat with coworkers, friends, and family – provided they all have Google accounts – required for both hosts and participants. In fact, Google is encouraging people to utilise its Meet video conferencing software instead of Zoom, as well as its own soon-to-be-decommissioned Google Hangouts service. A Meet link may be found in the Gmail app as well as in every Google Calendar appointment. This app allows a maximum of 100 users for video calls at a given time. It can easily work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams was designed to compete with Slack, and it's a brilliant idea if you're part of the Office environment. While the tool is primarily intended for commercial usage, Microsoft has stepped out of its three-piece suit and introduced a free personal version of Teams, which allows anyone to chat, call, or hold video meetings – all you need is a Microsoft account to use it. Due to the pandemic, Microsoft has increased the maximum number of participants from 100 to 300. The duration limit has also been increased from 60 minutes to 24 hours, giving it an advantage over most other free video conferencing programs. It can efficiently work with Windows and macOS for desktops or laptops and Android and iOS for mobile and tablets.
