Review: Try Imo Free Video Calls and Chat as an Alternative Messenger
There's plenty of various services with different operating principles for this task fulfillment. A part of them satisfies a need for speaking with friends and relatives; one more part allows sharing photo and video files with them; others are responsible for text messages sending only, etc. Still, sometimes it happens so that all the opportunities meet in one point, namely in an instant messenger. Let’s examine one of them – a mobile application called Imo Free Video Calls and Chat.
How to Start?
Moreover, you’ll be offered a short manual with the explanations of the basic features and opportunities.
The app provides users with unlimited and free of charge SMS and calls/video calls which are possible via 3G/4G/Wi-Fi technologies support.
Both sound and picture during a call/a video call are of good quality. The app may even compete with Skype for the dominance in a real-time video calling.
For your comfort, the contacts which aren’t currently online will be displayed at the very end of the contact list, while those with the online status are to be shown first.
Furthermore, like any Internet-dependent application, this messenger won’t provide you with any service, if you happen to find yourselves in an area without connection.
One more thing that irritates much is a trick being performed after launching the app. You tap on the icon to open the messenger; one more wrong and hasty tap leads to the situation when all your friends receive an invitation to join you in the app. Actually, all of them – your boss, your ex, and so on.
In fact, you won’t find many options or sections there – only Chats, Contacts, and Settings.
In the first of them – Chats – one may either invite friends or start a new dialog.
In Contacts you’ll find all your friends who have installed the app. Tapping on any of them opens a context menu for actions: to call, to start a video call, or to write a message. Stickers, photos, and handwritten drawings may be attached to the chat.
The Settings part contains options for changing a profile photo, viewing the blocked contacts, deleting a chat history, getting notifications, etc.
