Citing a Pew Internet paper which found that school children in the U. spent less time than ever with their friends in person, Livingston said he believes Kik video chat will provide a much-used form of communication for its young userbase.
Update: Oh hai, Facebook also launched group video calling today, too — we have more on that here.
Kik, the chat app that’s hugely popular among teens and young people in North America, is finally adding video chat to its service.
Rather than straight up person-to-person video calls like Apple’s Face Time, Facebook Messenger or the recently introduced Whats App feature, Kik has added a less intrusive video chat option for its 300 million-plus registered users, with support for groups of up to six.
Why cancel a session because you can’t find a babysitter when you can see your therapist on your laptop?!!Video-chat technologies, then, have major implications for how humans perceive key relationships.While interfaces like Skype, Face Time, and Google Hangout are still relatively new, this area of research builds on decades of experiments involving children and electronic screens.While some group video calling features stuff talking heads onto a screen, essentially forcing participants to either drop what they are doing to take part or get off the line, Kik said it has carefully created an additional layer that lives above the chat conversation and is accessible to all, even when people are out and about or otherwise unable to switch their video on.“It’s not like calling, we wanted to make it a seamless upgrade from chat,” Kik CEO and founder Ted Livingston told Tech Crunch.
