T-Mobile USA, Inc. launches T-Mobile Video Calling
Sep 24 15
T-Mobile USA, Inc. has announced the availability of T-Mobile Video Calling. T-Mobile Video Calling represents a huge step forward in how Americans make mobile phone calls. First, T-Mobile Video Calling works right out-of-the-box from your smartphone's dialer. There's no need to search out, download, configure and register additional apps. And, as you'd expect from the Un-carrier, T-Mobile Video Calling couldn't be simpler to use. Place and receive calls as normally would-simply choose either the video call button or voice call button. Really. It's that easy. On devices with T-Mobile Video Calling, small camera icons appear next to contacts with devices able to receive video calls. If the person you're calling can't take video calls, the video call icon is greyed out. We're working with others so can eventually enjoy built-in video calling across wireless networks. "You can make T-Mobile Video Calls to and from capable devices on any available LTE connection - using data straight from your high-speed data bucket - as well as over Wi-Fi. Like HD Voice calls, T-Mobile Video Calling moves seamlessly between LTE and Wi-Fi. And, if move off LTE or Wi-Fi to a slower connection, your video call seamlessly switches over to a voice call. If move back to LTE or Wi-Fi, switch it back to video with a single tap. Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 5 now have T-Mobile Video Calling available through simple software updates, while the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge updates will be available next week.
