Fring is a highly popular mobile application for group video calls, video calls, voice calls and live chat with friends and family. Before Viber and Whatsapp came into the market, every other person was using Fring application. It has been around for quite a long time – developed back in 2006. This app has still not lost its charm and large number of people use this application for communication needs.
The popular Fring features used are “Four way group video calling“, “Video chat on 3G or wifi“, “Chat it up with your buddies on the go – live texting at its best“, “Free calls to friends worldwide who are also using Fring“, “Call regular phone using Fring out“. What’s the primary feature of mobile phone that everyone uses – off course its calling and texting. However when you use your normal mobile telecom company for these you end up paying huge phone bills (especially with international calling).
That is where apps like Fring help – it allows you to call other people who are also using Fring for free. You can also use Fringout for calling normal mobiles (even international calls). The thing is what if you don’t have a mobile phone to download Fring (a smartphone) and still want to use these super features. You can use Fring on your PC. Please note that Fring officially does not offer any PC application – No Fring.exe available, so we will have to use some workarounds.
