You can use Google chat on your Samsung galaxy for Video chat. Google Talk video chat for Android is now available on Samsung galaxy s2. You can now use the Voice Chat application and can make video calls. This application can also use 3G and 4G and not just WI-FI.

All you need is a Google account. Go to Google talk application >> click on Video chat icon placed next to your contact name.
You can then video chat with your friends/ family. You can also use Quick. Quick helps you in Video chat, you can also Video mail. Sharing Video is also possible using Quick.

This application can also use 3G, 4G along with WI-FI. Video calling resolution is high as well. When you are not live for a Video chat, you can get Video mail. Only drawback that can be listed about Quick is it is poor at finding/ searching contacts having Quick. Fring is another Video chat option which you can use. You can use the same for group chat as well. Tango can also be used for Video chatting.

Video chat using Samsung Galaxy S2


Hello Drey,

I think so far Skype is the best video chat application that you can use on the Samsung Galaxy S2. I also use Skype to keep in contact with my family as well as friends around the world I have never been disappointed by its services. Though I must say that sometimes connections can either difficult to call, or they could be very quiet and also prone to drop.

If you need to try other video calling applications then I think the following must work for you:

  • Google chat.
  • Facebook Video call.

I have used these two and I found them to be impressive. You can go ahead and give them a try and see what the response will be like for you.

Hope this helps.

If you want to try other video chat apps for Android other than Skype, your Android phone already has one, the Google Hangouts app. Try running the app to see if it needs updating.
