Qik Launches Android Video Chat App

Qik has launched a new version of its video chat app Qik Video Connect for Android. The company has also updated its Qik iPhone app. 

Qik, which was recently acquired by Skype, brings its video chat app to the wider Android community for the first time with this release – up until now, the company distributed its app through device and carrier partners such as Sprint, T-Mobile, Samsung, HTC and Motorola. 

As well as live video chat, the app also allows users to send video mail – short clips of video to send a message when you cant get online live. 

The app also allows you to share video clips to Facebook friends, Twitter followers, YouTube, or your own blog. 

This week, the iPhone app is free to promote the new version – it usually costs £1.99. You can download it here.
