Fring outs group video call beta for Android, iOS

Fring on Tuesday hoped to one-up other mobile video chat options by starting a semi-public beta for group video calling. The test lets Android and iPhone users speak to three other users in real time. It should work cross-platform and won't carry charges, a slight dig at Skype's charging for group video calls on the desktop.

The beta doesn't have specific requirements, although Fring is strongly recommending using a fast Internet connection to avoid speed as a bottleneck. Users also likely want a device with a front camera, such as the iPhone 4 or HTC Thunderbolt, though it wasn't absolutely required.

Only a small number of spots are available and involve sending over a phone's unique identifiers to join in the test.
