In 2011, the company renamed Open Tok, focused only on providing an API to allow users to develop their own video chat applications and place them on their websites.You don’t need to be very skilled to build something; the instructions are given and the API is made as simple as possible such that users don’t need to bother about the technicalities of the primitives.The Skype application on my computer could see that my phone account was logged in and I could initiate a video call. Not only the name was different but the service as well – you had a video conferencing app and service like many others are offering.Secondly, we only considered phones with a screen size greater than five inches, as this ensured that you won't have to squint to see the other party on your video call.
Here are examples in which you can use Open Tok: The API and subscription are free, but you need the service to make the video thing work.
There is one particular app that deserves an honorable mention, because I’ve used it for so many years.
I just assumed that Skype would make the very top of the list when it comes to video chatting because it has always outperformed my expectations when it came to voice chatting and conferencing.
However, since One Plus and LG have both since released newer flagships in the One Plus 3T and LG V20, we opted to focus on the newer models instead.
Folks have been using instant messaging on their mobile phones almost as long as there have been mobile phones.
