The Skype pipeline may have been cut, but Fring is still chugging along with video chat for Android users. Fring announced today that the latest version of the phone has been updated to improve quality and support for new phones.
The Samsung Galaxy S now supports video calling using the front-facing camera. While the Samsung Epic for Sprint will be the only Galaxy S device in the U.S. with a front-facing camera, the international version of the device works with Fring right now.
Fring has also made “significant audio improvements” to the application. There were previously frequent complaints of echo problems that Fring claimed to fix in a previous update but some users still complained. Now, Fring says it is “fixed (fixed, fixed).” Users will also find “many more bug fixes” that should make for a better experience.
Download the app from the Android Market if you have a Samsung Galaxy S or HTC EVO and enjoy Fring-to-Fring video calls now.
