If you live in an Apple-only universe with constant access to Wi-Fi (and so does everyone you want to talk to), look no further than Face Time.
But everyone else needs a good video chat app, too.
You can also search for others who are currently broadcasting live, and with a active subscription view replays of their live broadcasts.
Once inside one of these live views streaming, you may comment on videos and read others comments or participate in a live chat with the creators of the live stream and their viewers.
There have been plenty of contenders for Face Time's crown on both the i OS and Android platforms, but most of them were heavy on features and light on video quality.
The latest crop, however, is making up for lost time.
Snapchat was one of the first private photo sharing apps available for i Phone and it's still one of the most widely used.
This site is for adults who wish to chat anonymously with like minded grown ups.
There is no advertising, basic membership to this chat site is free and our chat is old school internet 1.0 style free chat rooms.
With Snapchat you can take photos or videos and then choose how long you'd like the recipient to be able to view them for.
The recipient then holds their finger down in order to view the photo.
