New Yahoo Messenger app to support video calling on Android and iPhone
T-Mobile announced earlier this week that the new updated version of its myTouch smartphone will come with a front-facing camera, and a built-in app from Yahoo for video calling. Unlike Apple's Face Time, which for now works only when both sides of the conversation are in Wi-Fi coverage, Yahoo's system will work over a carrier's wireless connection.
While other services like Fring and Tango allow iPhone users to make video calls over both 3G and Wi-Fi, the Mountain View based company has much bigger footprints than either of those firms, and thus stands to have a much wider impact as video calling starts to spread and a front-facing camera becomes a standard feature on new phones.
