    Did anyone get FaceTime for Android in the latest update? A friend of mine said she got it. I don't see it.

    Highly doubtful. FaceTime is apple's service. Currently the only service they have on android is Apple Music.

    TMO has their own version though right now it is only compatible with certain phones. I've had it for months, I don't know about other carriers though.

    That is why there is a video camera on the bottom of the dialer.

    Hmm, maybe use an app like Tango, or something. I don't personally use it, but heard it isn't too bad for video 'calls'...

    Not on AT&T.

    But why not use FB Messenger? It allows voice and video calls and obviously is not restricted by carrier so long as both phones have front facing cameras. Works well for me.

    Sorry, but, I refuse to get, or use Facebook. Simply isn't going to happen. But, if that is a solution for others, great...

    PS: are you saying Tango doesn't work on AT&T? If so, that's a shame.

    Skype is another good choice.

    I haven't done video on the phone with Skype though I did use it for talking to my mom on her tablet when she was out of the country. It worked great for a phone call for me.

    Note with Skype and Hangouts, the person you call would also have to have those services installed and setup on their devices.

    Hangouts is basically google's version of FaceTime but it is cross compatible with all OS (android, apple, windows). It works good, my 1 daughter has an iPhone while the rest of the family has Android. We use hangouts with her & her iPhone.

    I have the Note 5 and there is a FaceTime option, but I think it's only available between Samsung device. I have 2 sons in college one has an HTC and the other has an S5, I can FaceTime with my son who has S5. Feature is not available on HTC.

    Blackberry Messenger has a video chat feature as well and available cross platform although not as popular as the others mentioned.

    Thanks for all the Replies. So apparently if the dialer is available it will show green when you call the person.
    Mystery Solved!

    It should also show the video icon green by their name in your contacts if they can use it.

    It would be nice to have apples FaceTime. More so there iMessage. I'm tired of the group text issue. I had an iPhone and was in the middle of a group text when I made the switch to the note 5. All other recipients have iPhones. I don't get those messages

    We've landed on Hangouts as our group messaging app for the iPhone and Android users in our family. As noted above, Hangouts works well, as does Skype. I keep both on the Note 5, and have them installed on my Windows laptop and desktop.

    Sorry, I missed this question. Yes, Tango works on AT&T and the Note 5.

    To your other comment about not getting Facebook....you actually don't have to use Facebook to use the Messenger app. They broke them apart so now you can use your phone number to activate Messenger as opposed to before where you needed to sign-in using a Facebook account.
