Fring group calling now live
Fring in the middle of Wednesday updated its free Android (Market) and iPhone (App Store) apps to officially launch group video calls. The feature lets owners of either platform make a call between themselves and as many as three others at the same time. Chats are cross-platform and will work on 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi as long as the bandwidth can keep up.
The app should be updated later in the day for both platforms. To get the full effect, users need either an iPhone 4 or fourth-generation iPod touch to get the front-facing camera or else an Android phone with matching hardware, usually running Android 2.2 and up.
