Qik has announced the release of a new version of Qik for Android phones. Previously, the full version of the app was only available to users who had the app preloaded on their phones. Well now, Qik has officially released the app on the Android Market, replacing the simplified version of the video service that only allowed recording but not video chatting.
The new Qik app allows users to stream live video and have video calls with users over 3G, 4G or WiFi. It even allows Android users to have video calls iOS users on Qik as well. Fret not if you don’t have a front facing camera – Qik allows users to make use of their rear cameras – just make sure you have a mirror handy if you’d like you chat and show yourself to the person you’re talking to as well.
Just in case your friends aren’t around to receive video calls, Qik also gives you the chance to record video messages that can be emailed to them. Qik is available now on the Android Market or App Store for free this week. Download the app, spread the word and make some video calls today.
