    Video Chat on GNex

    IPhone has FaceTime. Is Google Video the best app to make video calls on GNex? It just seems too much. Face time is quick and easy. Not that I am an Apple fan. Not at all but Android almost seems to be going the way of M$ with the difficulty of software. I could be wrong.

    I think google talk is the best.

    But don't think its as good as face time yet.

    Just my opinion.

    Tango is the easiest. Tango android can also talk with Tango Iphone.

    Agreed. I thought maybe it was just me. I don't want to switch to iPhone just for Face time. Any good apps or advice that takes advantage of GNEX and ICS?

    I read somewhere that Tango has caused some issues with ICS.

    I use Fring for video chat and it seems to work as good as face time. I am not a fan of apple so if u like face time and want an equivalent on your android device check out this app on the market. I actually use it to talk to some of my friends on their ipod touch, of course they have to have it on their ipod too.

    I have been using it with my gnex for couple weeks now and have had no problems, no fc's at all. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to video chat on their gnex.

    +1 for Tango. like stated above, works well doing android to iphone calls and on to computer with webcam as well. Seen no issues with tango and ICS yet. Super easy to setup. Also, it would have limited use but you can also use it on phones without a front camera like a droid x using the back camera in case someone really wanted to show you something in real time.
