Facebook Video Chat Vs. Google+ Hangout

3:11 PM Juan Espinosa 2 Comments

Facebook today release a Video Chat option power by Skype. They are releasing the Video Chat button or how they call it the "Call" button that will be next to your regular chat icon slowly to some users. Eventual in the coming weeks every single user will have the opportunity to have its own Video Chat icon. In the meantime you may want to try the following website to test: https://www.facebook.com/videocalling. This is a pretty nice add to Facebook even though it seems that this Video Chat is to get at Google+ Hangout which is pretty cool.

This is how the "Call" button will look like!!!
One thing that Facebook Video Chat does not do for now is Conference Video Chat. On the other hand Google+ Hangout have Conference Video Chat of its own. Another nice upgrade for Facebook is Group chats (not Video Groups chats), just regular Group chats.

  1. Google Plus has hangouts where people can video chat with multiple friends in one go! Facebook has yet to match this feature! Facebook only has been able to implement group chats but certainly not video chats with multiple users within one chat. Right now there are 750 million users on Facebook and they are happy to use Facebook services, whereas Google Plus is going to need to pull people off of Facebook, wean them off and convince them that Google plus has better features and functions that beat those on Facebook. That's the only way they can get people to come and use their services rather than the big boy Facebook.

  2. Totally Agree with you...But lets see what happen because Google+ is gaining more and more users and a lot of those 750 millions user on Facebook are not very satisfied with their new updates to the website.
