SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 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, is once again raising the bar on group video calling, adding support for 7-way group video calling, via its mobile and browser-based applications.
Earlier this year, C2Call expanded the feature-set of FriendCaller apps to include multi-point video and voice conferencing capabilities. With the addition of 7-way group video calling, FriendCaller is the first mobile and browser-based application to support live video chats, with up to seven participants, and with the capability to add an additional 20 participants in a voice-only chat.
"FriendCaller is leading the industry in the use of ground-breaking technology that leverages the cloud to support all-in-one voice calling and videoconferencing services that are free of charge to users," said Michael Knecht, CTO of FriendCaller developer C2Call GmbH. "Our innovative and complex algorithms require extremely low resources on both the mobile client and cloud server side, which allows us to support a greater number of video and audio participants than are currently supported by other mobile group video calling platforms."
With FriendCaller, users can either leverage the browser-based application, or mobile application to connect with large groups of friends or family members while at home, at work, or on the road. FriendCaller is also a useful professional collaboration tool that can serve to strengthen communication between teams of workers from disparate geographic regions. FriendCaller offers multi-lingual support for the English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Chinese languages.
FriendCaller leverages C2Call's unique cross-platform, cloud-hosted technology to provide users a number of innovative features that in addition to Mobile Group Video Chat include Text Messaging (SMS), Browser-based WebPhone, Caller-ID, CallMe-Links, video calling and a real phone number. FriendCaller is currently available via the iTunes App Store, Android Market and the FriendCaller.com website.
C2Call is the first company to offer free cloud hosted video and voice calls without the need to download software. C2Call's FriendCaller is the first free multi-point video calling app that works across all desktop browsers and smart phone platforms. CEO Martin Feuerhahn and CTO Michael Knecht founded C2Call in 2008. Investors in C2Call include Bill Draper, an early Skype investor.
