    Default Video calling from Galaxy S5 to the iPhone 5s

    Wonder if there are any pros out there on this one.
    I had the iPhone 5 and the OL has the 5S iPhone.
    We used FaceTime to talk to each other so we could see each other when we talk sometimes.

    Heard about Skype. So I downloaded it for the iPhone app store.
    Went to Samsung Apps. Typed search. Not there
    What program will work for the iPhone to the Samsung S5 for FaceTime .

    Search for Skype in the Google Play store and you should find it. Or you can use Hangouts which is also available on iOS and in my opinion is superior to Skype. Hope that helps.

    Thanks
    Downloaded Skype from the Google play store like you said.
    But I couldn't set it up on the S5
    Guess I will wait till another day and try it again.

    Still learning this phone.

    I use Hangouts. Works really well with iPhone users. And you can video chat with more than one person at a time.

    Sent from the Galaxy Note 3...yeah, its spectacular.

    Downloaded it on both our phones. It wanted money to make it work. I ain't giving Skype money for it or setting up an account with money.

    It wants money from you to make phone calls. I don't know where you ended up in the process but its free to sign up and use.

    Skype wanted money from me. Wouldn't let me set the account up without a credit card.
    What happened when Microsoft used to have a program to let you do free FaceTime.
    Somebody buy it up to take it off the market.
