Tango Text, Voice & Video
Name: Tango Text, Voice & Video
If you're not a fan of Skype, Tango is a fair alternative. You can make video and voice calls, send text messages and play games with friends and family. The app also has a useful group chat feature for more than two callers.
Google+ as a social network may not rival Facebook in size or user base, but the Hangout feature does set it apart. You can make 'calls' to invite Google+ contacts to join a multi-user conversation online, or be content to share status updates and images. The 'effects' feature in a Hangout are worth a look too, if you want to see yourself with a crown or pirate hat.
