T-Mobile Debuts Native Video Calling Service

Posted by at 10:43 am on September 3, 2015

T-Mobile today announced T-Mobile Video Calling, a service that works with the native phone dialer of select handsets without requiring special apps.

Like VoLTE and HD Voice, T-Mobile Video Calling can move easily between LTE and WiFi with no dropped video. Video calls will be converted to voice calls, however, if one or both parties moves away from LTE or WiFi coverage. Video calls do count against monthly data buckets.

T-Mobile subscribers will be able to see which of their contacts are available for video calls thanks to new icons being added directly to the contact application. The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ are the first two handsets capable of making native T-Mobile Video Calls thanks to an update being disseminated this week.

T-Mobile plans to add the feature to the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge next week, and to three other unnamed handsets later this year. T-Mobile said it is working with competing carriers to enable the feature across networks.
