Instantly reach the people in your world with Facebook Messenger. Facebook’s mobile app offers users free calling, as well as video calling over the Internet.

As well as being able to participate in voice and video calling, it’s possible to share files and send messages between devices. And unlike Facebook Messenger, Skype offers the ability to make online group video calls with up to 25 people; a definite plus.
Another popular free call app is FreeConference.com. FreeConference is available on iOS and Android, and like Skype, you’ll be able to join voice and video calls with up to eight people (limited to three webcams on the free plan). However, unlike Skype and Facebook, a FreeConference account is not required of your participants, making this a very attractive choice for call Organizers. You also have the option of scheduling calls in advance, utilizing cool features like email invitations, recurring meetings, group call invites, SMS notifications, and lots more!
Whether you’re hosting a group chat or simply dialing into one, these call apps can be extremely useful. And the best part is that they’re free! All of the above-mentioned apps are available in the Google Play Store and App Store.
