Video chatting without login
For staying connected, video calling is still all the rage.
More personal than a phone call, but just as easy, video calling is often free and the feature is popping up in more apps, including Whats App earlier this year.
If you have an i Phone or i Pad, your top choice would likely be Face Time, since its built into the operating system and works well.
But if you're rocking an Android phone or tablet, you'll need to pick another app to help you stay connected.
While Gilde isn't a real-time video chatting app, it deserves a spot on this list for its unique approach.
What's not: The app's design is a bit confusing, because some of the same features are in multiple locations.You can chat one-on-one, or add more participants (up to 10), using your phone's front or rear camera.Video calls, and even most voice calls, are free to any other Hangouts user.What's not: The app can be glitchy, especially when trying to hang up a video call. Since it got its start sending text-based messages, that's still where Viber shines.You can send messages, stickers, photos, voice messages and your location.
Google's own video and messaging app is one of the most popular ways to make voice and video calls from your Android phone, and that's not just because the app usually comes pre-installed.
