By | September 8, 2015


T-Mobile has launched a video calling feature named T-Mobile Video Calling on Thursday. The best thing about this service is that you don’t have to install any additional app for video calling, you can do video calling as you do voice calling. This service allows you to do video call from your dialer, you just have to select from Voice call or video call before making any call.

When you do video calling, it will automatically switch from LTE to Wi-Fi network as you move around and if the bandwidth of the network gets low, the video call will switch to voice call. You can switch back to video call option by just pressing a buttons, once you are in a faster network.

Neville Ray, the Chief Technology Officer of T-Mobile said, “Small camera icons appear next to contacts with devices able to receive video calls. If the person you’re calling can’t take video calls, the video call icon is greyed out. We’re working with others so you can eventually enjoy built-in video calling across wireless networks,”

This feature looks very good, but it also comes with a conditions, this video calling service of T-Mobile only works on Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 smartphones with a new software updates. This service will also be compatible to Samsung upcoming Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge from next week once their update rolls out.
