Tango vs Google Hangouts Free Download – Things You Should Know about the New Video Calling App


If you want to save money that you use on phone bills then get a voice and video calling app.

The advantage with these applications is that they won’t deduct any money from your airtime. Tango is one of the most popular video chat applications for mobile devices. The application supports the Android, iOS and Windows phone devices, giving it an automatic advantage over the competitors. But does the application have what it takes to beat its main competitors like Skype and Google Hangouts? Let’s find out!

Set up and UI

Setting app Tango is pretty fast and easy. Go to the Play Store or Apple App Store to download the latest version of the app. Once you have downloaded it, you will be able to create an account. And you should be able to make your first call within seconds. You are only required to enter your phone number in order to start using the app. Google hangouts, on the other hand, needs you to have a Google account in order to enjoy the service.

The user interface is almost the same in both the apps. There are icons for settings, invites and contacts. Just like Google Hangouts, Tango is capable of auto-searching your phone’s address book to see who uses the app. Once you have found a contact that uses Tango, you can call him or her right away.

The cost of making calls

Calls are free on both Tango and Google Hangouts. Both the application use Wi-Fi to place calls for free. When you make calls over a free Wi-Fi network, you will not be charged anything. Tango and Google Hangouts do not use your airtime when calling a friend or relative in another country. One important thing that Tango users should know is that there is no possibility to call mobile phones or landlines. The person you want to talk to must have a Tango account.

Call Quality

Tango often suffers from quality problems, depending on your Internet connection. If you want quality features, then go for Google Hangouts. Google Hangouts is known for its high quality audio and video. It is therefore not easy to beat Hangouts in this regard. Also, both the apps allow you to switch your video call over to voice call and continue your conversation without any kind of interruption.

Number of people who can video chat

Unlike Google Hangouts and Skype, Tango only allows a video conversation between two people. This means that Tango does not have a video conferencing feature. So when it comes to the number of people who can video chat at the same time, Google Hangouts take the crown.

Final Thoughts  

It cannot be denied that Tango is a great app for making free voice and video calls to other Tango users. It offers people the ability to make video calls even without a front-facing camera. Unlike Google Hangouts and other apps, however, Tango does not have adequate features. It seems like the app is strictly designed for voice and video calls between the Android and iOS Smartphone users.
