Qik launches fully functional app for Android OS

Recent Skype acquisition Qik has now launched a full-fledged video chat app for Android phones. The free app (Android Market), the app offers not just live streaming and sharing but two-way conversation. Previously, this version was only available preloaded on devices like the Evo 4G, with the downloadable app being simpler and allowing only recording of videos.

The new app allows for live streaming using 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks. It's also cross-platform compatible, with Android 2.1-2.33 phones and any iOS 4 devices such as the iPad 2 and iPhone 4. The app will integrate with existing contact lists and shows who is online. Users can stream what they're looking at using the rear camera or their face using their phone's front-facing camera.

Videos can also be sent over e-mail or threaded video mail conversations. E-mails with video can be sent directly from the app to those without the app as well. It connects with Facebook and notifies users when friends share video. Other video sharing options include Twitter, YouTube, blogs and other sites. [via TechCrunch]
