My company is using Skype for business but everyone want to have a change to an application for voice, text messaging, free call, chat...etc which is better than Skype. I recommend them to use Whatsapp or Google Hangouts but not sure which one is better. Can any one suggest me some application that specializes in providing video chat and voice calls between computers, tablets, mobile devices and more?

Thanks in advance.

You can do voice calls with Discord but not video calls.

MS Teams I would go with that professionals business tends to use this simply download it there 2 options paid and free paid you get more benefits and then download the application. You can voice chat and text and It's available on both PC and Phone.

Google Duo is one of the best video chat apps for Android & IOS.

Yes Google Duo support PC. To use Duo on your laptop or desktop, simply go to duo.google.com. If you're already logged into your web browser with your Google account, there's no setup of any kind required.

You'll instantly see your Google Contacts list, can search by their name or number, and access various settings like blocked users, your call log, and Duo's Knock Knock feature.

The whole process is incredibly easy, especially compared to the whole QR code pairing process you have to go through with something like Google's Messages web client.

If you want, go with whatsapp, but for me, I still use Skype for connections.

Discord and Google Duo is about your only best options that I'm aware of. Looking around though, I see a lot of people recommending WhatsApp.

Well I think Slack is a good choice too you might want to try Slack Standard or Plus or Enterprise depending on your business and how many employees and staff members you have on and clients (users) is it a hosting? if so I think plus would work for you

You can try new MS Teams from Microsoft. Now Microsoft is offering it for free for 6 months

Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal. I would advise to create accounts in all three apps as there are customers who only use Telegram or exclusively Signal... if you don't have an account there you're losing customers...

That’s a pretty cool idea. Then coming to the point, going with whatsapp or Google hangout is extremely a good idea. But they are completely SaaS-based product where you can’t customize the video chat feature according to your business needs. Basically, they are a good option if you look for any subscription-based module where the user-count, video calls are limited.

If you want to scale your video calling experience, probably SaaP (Software as a Product) is the best deal. SaaP based video calling APIs are pretty cool with features and customizable too.

Here’s a brief comparison on how SaaP based video chat API differs from SaaS-based APIs.

SaaS vs SaaP


Although the video chat market is flooded with so many providers, all you can do is to partner with an enterprise messaging solution provider like MirrorFly. It’s a completely customizable solution where the video call feature can be modified according to your use cases.

The enterprise video chat provider is one of the trusted business where you’ll get a bunch of techies to develop or integrate video chat feature on your own platform with the industry-standard infrastructure and so on.

The video chat API is absolutely scalable to handle concurrent users. The video chat solution is embedded with WebRTC infrastructure to assure you the quality of the video call experience is simply awesome. Their APIs will suit any of native languages and also applicable to build a cool video chat platform with intuitive design and development on cloud or on-premises.

The Video chat API is available for Android, iOS, Web and React native. To offer the best possible security, the chat solution is completely encrypted with end-to-end, SSL and much more.

  • One to one calling
  • Group video calling
  • Video Conferencing
  • Live Broadcasting
  • Screen sharing
  • Video Recording
  • 100% customizable
  • Design & Development Team
  • One Time payment
  • Unlimited Video Call
  • End to End Encryption

Are you getting confused? To choose the best white-label solution provider for an iOS/Android chat app. Need not to bother about it.

I simplify the process and suggest the best white-label solution providers are:
1. CONTUS Fly
2. Apphitect
3. Sendbird
