T-Mobile introduces video calling for selected models

T-Mobile introduces video calling
Today, T-Mobile has announced video calling is available for its subscribers. There are two handsets that currently support the new feature, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note5. Next to receive video calling will be the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Before the year is out, three other handsets (unknown for now) will be similarly updated.

The carrier's CTO, Neville Ray, said in a message that with T-Mobile video calling, there will be no need to download any apps. Camera icons will appear next to the names of your contacts that are able to accept T-Mobile video calls. If that person has disabled the feature for the moment (use your imagination to guess why), the camera icon will be "greyed out." Ray added that T-Mobile is working with the other carriers to make video calling work across different wireless pipelines.

Current software updates have already enabled the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5 to use video calling. Simply go to Settings > About Device > Software Update on either phone. The updates for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will start rolling out next week.
