See what you're missing with new Qik Video Connect apps Live iPhone-to-Android video chat and much more!
We’re excited to announce Qik Video Connect–a new version of Qik for Android and an update to the latest Qik iPhone app. Qik Video Connect has lots of great new features including the ability for Qik users to live video chat with other Qik users across Android phones and iPhones!
The new Qik apps work on a whole bunch of Android (2.1-2.3.3) phones, iPhones, the iPad2 and every iPod Touch with a camera. They make it easier to stay connected and share special moments with your friends and family. Show up for a birthday. Help pick out a prom dress. Or just be there when you can’t.
What’s more, Qik Video Connect is the only mobile video calling solution that also enables video mail. Can’t connect live? (Because that never happens, right?) No problem. Send a video mail and say–or show–it live and in person1.
And when you want to share something with more than one person, Qik Video Connect offers some cool ways to share videos with your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, on YouTube or your blog. And you don’t even need a front-facing camera on your phone–just show them what’s happening around you.
Qik is able to offer users improved battery life, smoother video and better picture quality through deep device and hardware integration in collaboration with handset manufacturers (Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, Dell) and chipset vendors (Qualcomm, TI, Samsung, Nvidia). Some devices even have VGA support over Wi-Fi2.
The launch of Qik Video Connect marks the first time the video chat capability is available in the Android Market via download and not just as a pre-loaded app. So Qik! Just update what you currently have or scan the QR code below to get it ASAP. Or, hit the Android Market or iPhone App Store and download the newest version of Qik Video Connect. And then, sit back and see what you’ve been missing!
Note: If you have an Android 2.2 phone that has both front and back cameras, but Qik only detects the back camera, contact Qik support at http://support.qik.com ASAP and our developers will do their best to add front camera support for your device.
