t-mobile-video-calling

Last month T-Mobile revamped SMS and MMS with new features that it collectively called T-Mobile Advanced Messaging, at that time the carrier said that it will provide more rich communication services in the near future and it’s following through on that promise today. T-Mobile has launched video calling today, you might think that’s not a big deal since there are countless apps out there that offer precisely the same thing, but it’s different from all of them. T-Mobile video calling will work on supported devices straight out of the box through the smartphone’s dialer.

This means that in order to make a video call users no longer have to search, download, register and start using a third-party application, they can easily initiate one from the dialer itself just as they would initiate a normal voice call.

Place and receive the calls as you normally would and simply select the video call or the voice call button to select the kind of call you want to make, there are no pesky settings to configure here.

Devices that have T-Mobile video calling will display a small camera icon next to contacts that also have compatible devices, T-Mobile is working with others so that video calls can work across wireless networks. Video calls can be made to and from any compatible device using LTE or Wi-Fi, just like HD Voice calls on the network the video calls will also move seamlessly between Wi-Fi and LTE.

Currently the supported devices include Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, they’ll get the service through simple software updates while the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will get the same update next week. Support for more devices will be added down the line.

NASA is looking into several methods of space exploration aside from the obvious one which requires rockets and expensive spacecrafts that require a lot of fuel to carry out their business up in space. The agency is working on a new spacecraft concept which will basically hitch a ride on a speeding comet to discover the solar system, some of these comets and asteroids are whizzing by at over 22,000 miles per hour which is actually considered to be on the slow end.
