Instant messaging and video chat
Use the Hangouts instant messaging and video chat application on your device to chat with friends who also use the application on computers, Android devices and other devices. You can turn any conversation into a video call with several friends, and you can send messages to friends even when they are offline. You can also view and share photos easily.
Hangouts requires internet access and a Google account. Go to http://support.google.com/hangouts and click a topic, then go to the "Android" tab for more information on how to use this application.
The video call function only works on devices with a front camera.
