Thanks God, that there are such startups as Fring. Only thanks to them business technologies are going forward relatively quickly and IT giants like Skype begin to move ass faster and reduce their planning and development cycles that would usually take months and years. While most users still don't know how to make video calls using a smartphone, Fring is coming with group video chat for iPhone and Android (but only in the closed beta so far). Fring's group video call can support up to 4 people and you can see video streams of all participants on the display. Of course, its doubtful that this feature will become very popular in the near future and it will be possible to earn on it. But its exciting that such startup as Fring can afford to develop such innovations.
