Nimbuzz launches cross-platform video calling for iPhone and PC!

Great news, we just launched Video Calling for all the iPhone and PC users out there! You can get your hands on latest updates here:

The Nimbuzz video calling feature works over 3G/4G and WiFi, so no matter where you are you can always connect with your friends. All you need to do is make sure that both you and your Nimbuzz buddies have installed the latest version ;).

Even more exciting, we introduced video chat, which allows you to message/text with video, but minus the audio. This feature is awesome because it allows you to see each other on networks that restrict access to VoIP calling services ;).

Next on our list, video calls for Symbian and Android mobile phones :D !  Stay tuned!

We hope you will enjoy video calling and video chatting and we are waiting for your feedback.

P.S.:  Help us spread the good news and share this post on Twitter and Facebook!

    As mentioned above Video calling is supported on Nimbuzz for PC (version 2.0 and above) and Nimbuz for iPhone; we are working in order to provide this feature on more platforms in the future.
    We cannot provide you any estimate of when will it be yet.
    @Prisoner.Of.Romance
    Thanks for your comment, we do not have plans yet to enable chatrooms on Nimbuzz for PC, but we will consider it .
    @Divesh
    Which exact issue do you face when trying to place a Video call?
    Remember that Video calling is just available between Nimbuzz contacts which both are using a Nimbuzz version that supports this functionality.

    Unfortunately and due to some technical limitations we do not provide calling on BlackBerry devices, hence it will be much more complicated to provide video calling on those devices as well.

  19. Hello,im using nimbuzz on galaxy s 2.3.5 jvs.
    Is there a way to remove the echo test contact? It really bothers me,and its annoying

  20. Dear Nimbuzz team I’m using last version of Nimbuzz on Iphone 4 and I’m so happy about the changes you made especially with the file transferring and video calling but i have some recommendation that i hope you consider
    1-adding delete option in calls menu
    2-adding new emotions like the ones in Symbian
    3-adding the ability to send audio files or other extensions ..doc.rar etc .

  21. It would be great if you could get video chat working for symbian because there are no other real alternatives right now. It’s so frustrating to have a phone that has all the hardware (n8) but no software to use it. I would pay for the software if you made it. I would help you write it if you need help.

  22. @ashley
    Your account is active, you should be able to login with your username/password combination.
    Have you tried to login with a different Nimbuzz client like my.nimbuzz.com?
    In which country are you located? Which type of connection do you use?
    Let us know.
    @tushar
    Thanks for your offer, as mentioned previuosly you can send your questions directly to the mentioned email address.
    @moondoggie
    The echo test contact is not supposed to be removed, it comes very handy when you need to test the voice quality.

  23. Im using nimbuz on my blackberry 9780 . But calling option not avail. How can i get voice call supported vershion ?

  24. i am unable to log into fb via nimbuzz, just because i have activated do not disturb(DND) on my mobile. and also turn of security setting on fb is login approval, it means that whenever i ll try to login into a fb app , facebook will send me a code, and i have to use that code instead of my fb password, so these days due to DND i am not reciving msg from fb and unable to log into nimbuzz, i was tried my best to turn off login approval but did’t find setting for this. So nimbuzz please help me.

    @Junu
    We do not support calling on BlackBerry and Java devices.

    We recommend you to change your default status from FB itself to Online instead of DND or offline.

    Rgds,

  37. @shan
    You can video call with Nimbuzz contacts who have a Webcam and a Nimbuzz version compatible.
    Have you tested your Audio/Video settings on Nimbuzz directly?
    Which exact issue do you face when trying to place a video call?
    Let us know!

  38. Why is that the new NIMBUZZ for symbian do not allow to make SIP calls if the call duration is more that 20 seconds?
    Mitto.

  39. Hmmm… The date on bringing Video call to Symbian is getting so long.. Pls do not neglect symbian just like skype did

  40. @Udoka
    Thanks for your comment, we will research the possibilities of implementing this feature on Symbian platform.
    Regards

  41. @jim litton
    We recommend a bit stronger connection like 3G or Wi-Fi in order to have a good call quality, not just image but also sound.
    Regards

  42. @Mitto
    We do not proxy SIP Voice Streams, which means that Nimbuzz just connects you to the SIP servers and the audio and voice portion of the call, is managed by your SIP provider.
    For assistance on this issue please contact your SIP Support Team and let them know.
    Cheers

  43. Nimbuzz will give video call to Symbian devices when Skype does the same.

    That I guess, will be when Nimbuzz and Skype have developed the holographically projected calls feature for iOS and Android and may be WebOS(!) and probably BB

  44. @eM
    We do have plans to implement calling on more platforms, but unfortunately we cannot provide you with an estimate date of when will that happen.
    Regards

  45. @Renan
    Thanks for your suggestion, we currently do not have plans to implement this feature on BB devices.

Also provide option for front and rear camera selection. What about skype account? MOU signed with skype?
    Thank You

  66. @Aravamudan A S – It is in our roadmap to introduce the video calling feature on Symbian device. However, we cannot fix up a date for its release.

    Regarding Skype – Nimbuzz has been asked by Skype to remove support for all Skype services, effective October 31st, 2010 after this date, Skype will no longer be accessible via Nimbuzz.

    The move is understood to be in line with Skype’s mandate to disconnect with all third party VOIP services ahead of its impending IPO. While we don’t agree with Skype’s business strategy to isolate its customers by disconnecting with Nimbuzz, their decision does not effect how people can communicate with Nimbuzz. Users can still call chat and message for free, and use NimbuzzOut for cheap international calls to mobile phones and landlines, or connect with friends and family on other networks, including Facebook, Yahoo, Windows Live Messenger (MSN), AIM, GoogleTalk, MySpace, Gadu-Gadu, and Hyves.
