Alternative Video Calling Clients

Almost a quarter of all the telecommunication around the world is done with Skype. According to a statistic released by Skype, user using Skype make 700 million minutes of calls with this application every day. Of these 700 million minutes of calls around 42% are video calls. This makes Skype one of the most used clients for video calling in the world. But what other alternatives to this software are out there which you can use if needed.

For businesses Skype is one of the most suitable solutions because it provides users with the chance to make conference calls with more than a dozen of people simultaneously. Still, Skype isn't the only application in the world that provides such services to its users. "Cisco TelePresence" and "Lotus Sametime" are ideal for video conference calling as well. However, these apps in contrast to Skype are not free.

"Cisco TelePresence" and "Lotus Sametime" are great video calling solution for business but for the ordinary person there are more useful applications which are free just like Skype. Google Voice and Google Talk are ideal for the job. While you can make video calls with Google Talk to other users using the same application, you can also use it to call Spain landline/ mobile phones as well, if you have active Google Voice account.

OoVoo is another app that offers the same, if not even better, video calling services as Skype. This app is available for Windows, Mac, and handful of Android devices. There is an iPad version of OoVoo also on the way. There are two versions of this app – free one and paid one.

Apple users have their own great video calling alternative integrated on most Apple devices iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac computers. The alternative is called FaceTime and it provides Apple users with a chance to make high quality video calls with other Apple users everywhere in the world for free. But, for example, you cannot call Spain landline and mobile phone numbers with FaceTime, like with other VoIP and video clients.

Although Skype is the undisputed leader of the internet telecommunication with the service it provides like making free Skype-to-Skype calls or the cheapest calls to international mobile and landline phone numbers. The video calling service of Skype is also a very popular one. However, Skype isn't the only option for video calling and there are plenty of other useful video calling clients that users can made their selection from.
