Calling apps have the cool quality of making our lives easier when it comes to getting in touch with other people. If you take a look at the Google Play Store, you’ll find plenty of calling apps for Android that are cheap and effective. Some are free, some are not, some Android apps can only be used if the other party has the app as well, some you use to call mobiles and/or landlines. You just have to find the one that better suits your needs, and we can help with that. Here are some of the best international apps for Android on the market, that you may want to try.
Signal Private Messenger is an increasingly popular Android app that focuses on security. It’s open-source and it encrypts everything it sends. That includes voice calls and text messages. It offers free calls and texts, although other people will have to be using Signal Private Messenger as well, and it’s only fully secure if both parties are using it. There were some complaints lately about some glitches related to stuck messages, but it’s definitely an option for those you want free calls.
The KeepCalling international calling app for Android has really cheap rates for long distance calling. You can download it for free, and it has a friendly interface with direct access to your contacts. It’s secure and money-saving, with no hidden fees. You can use it to make high quality VoIP calls all around the world, with WiFi or 3G/4G. One of the greatest parts about it is that you can still place a call from the app without having an internet connection or having a poor internet connection, through a local access number, thanks to the Offline Calling feature. This feature is available for free in your client account.
You can choose this Android app to make free calls to other people who use Slack, and you can also use it as a chat service that’s aimed at businesses both big and small. You’ll be able to create text channels, message people individually, and it comes with integration with a lot of other apps. It’s also cross-platform and calls are easy enough to make. The connection may not always be great if you’re talking to people on the other side of the world. Still, Slack is free and can be an option to take into consideration.
Google Duo is a video chatting app available for Android, but it also supports just regular voice calls as well. It’s easy to use, but like many VoIP apps, everyone has to be on Duo for the calls to work. This is a free calling app for Android, and it may even come pre-installed on some newer Android devices. You just have to get your friends to sign up and get going.
MagicApp uses an actual phone number. The app also features cross-platform support, support for calling landlines, and even SMS support. The service isn’t free, it costs $9.99 per year. That gets you unlimited calls to US and Canada, unlimited texts to any US phone number, and an actual phone number to use. It works fairly well on both mobile and PC.
Try out these calling apps for Android devices and start communicating with people all over the globe. Decide for yourself which is the best for you and for your international calls. Calling apps can be a great solution when having WiFi or 3G/4G, and when the other party is not using the app, don’t worry, you can still enjoy cheap rates with many other VoIP options.
