General public is already utilizing video conferencing or video calls for long distance communication. Since the introduction of smartphones, voice and video calls over the internet have increased by more than 500% and many developers have introduced their own video conferencing apps on both Android and iOS. Let's take a look at some of the most popular video conferencing apps on Android:
Lync 2013 (Skype for Business)
Professionals are already aware of Microsoft Lync because it is one of the most popular communication tool used in organizations. Microsoft has updated Lync to Skype for Business but its Android counterpart is still waiting for an update. Microsoft Lync is used by more than 80 million professionals in their offices. The Android version, Lync 2013 is gaining popularity but at the moment there are roughly 5 million users. Lync 2013 requires Lync server setup which is integrated with the Android app for use. Without Lync server, the Android app is useless for an average user because it requires credentials from in-house office setup to log-in.
It is an excellent tool for video conferencing since it is connected with your professional contacts and you can join any meeting while you are away on vacation. It allows instant messaging, video calls, voice calls, call forwarding from the enterprise number and enterprise grade security.
