C2Call's FriendCaller Becomes the First Application to Support the Complete Next-Generation Social Communication Experience

Users No Longer Need to Rely on Multiple Apps to Support Group Video Chat, Texting, Long-Distance Phone Calls, Photo and Video Sharing, Voice Messaging and Location Sharing

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 6, 2012) - C2Call GmbH, developer of FriendCaller, the world's first app to support free mobile video chat services across Apple iOS devices including iPhone®, iPod Touch® and iPad™, Android™-based smart phones and tablets, and the FriendCaller WebPhone, today announced that FriendCaller has become the first application to fully support the complete next-generation social communication experience of its users.

Available now for Android-based mobile devices, via Facebook, and soon for Apple iOS devices, the latest version of FriendCaller is the only application that currently enables users to communicate with friends, individually or in groups via voice and video chat, share photos and videos, or even share their location. With the new FriendCaller platform, users can:

  • Record and share video clips;
  • Snap a photo and share it instantly through FriendCaller or Facebook;
  • Send messages from their photo and video library;
  • Leave voicemail and video messages for their friends; and,
  • Share a location via Google Places™.

"The latest enhancements we have made to the FriendCaller application were driven by users, who after realizing how simple it was to make a real-time connection with their friends via FriendCaller's voice and group video chat features, requested that we add functionality to support the exchange of photos, video, and location sharing across multiple platforms," said Michael Knecht, CTO of FriendCaller developer C2Call GmbH.

Martin Feuerhahn, CEO of C2Call GmbH, added, "FriendCaller is quickly becoming the application of choice for millions of users who want to be able to communicate across multiple hardware and software platforms using group video chat and enhanced messaging functionality. Through our newly redesigned interface, we are bringing the concept of social communication to fruition, and making it possible for our users to communicate in a variety of ways with their friends and social networks using a single application, regardless of whether they are using their mobile device, desktop browser, Facebook, e-mail address or a phone number."

C2Call uses unique and complex algorithms that leverage the cloud-hosted technology to provide users with complete social communication experience that is both free of charge and offers unique features that are currently unavailable with other mobile calling apps.

Among the innovative features available with FriendCaller, in addition to photo and video sharing and location sharing, include Mobile Group Video Chat supporting up to seven participants, and with the capability to add an additional 20 participants in a voice-only chat, Text Messaging (SMS), Browser-based WebPhone, Caller-ID, CallMe-Links, video calling and a real phone number. FriendCaller also offers multi-lingual support for the English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Chinese languages.

The FriendCaller social communication app is currently available via the Google Play and the FriendCaller.com website.
