Snag more face time with video calls on your Galaxy device

Man using his Galaxy phone to video chat

When you are away from your friends and family and talking on the phone just isn’t enough, see them face to face via a video call or chat! Your Galaxy device has a number of services already available on it that can make this happen, or you can use one of the many other options that are out there. 

Built-in video calling and chat

Depending on your carrier, you may have the option to start a video call while you are already on the phone. Simply tap the camera icon shown below the keypad to begin a video call. To switch back to a standard voice call, tap the camera icon again. This may vary depending on your carrier. If you are unable to switch back to a voice call using the icon you might have to end the call and call back.

Note: Functionality may not be available on all devices or carriers. Video chat is only available on Android OS.

Google Duo, Whatsapp and other options

Google Duo is an app that allows for video chat and it even comes preinstalled on your Galaxy device! If you haven’t seen it on your device, make sure to check the Google folder in Apps. Setup is easy, just sign into your Google account and follow a couple of quick steps and you will be up and running!

Plenty of other third-party apps have video chat capabilities too, such as Whatsapp, Facebook and SnapChat. These are only a few of the many options you have when it comes to making video calls. Use one of these apps or one that you are already familiar with, either way find that one that fits your style and score some face time!
