FaceFlow: free Skype alternative for video calls

For video chatting and calling, Skype isn’t the only player on the block and FaceFlow is gaining traction as an alternative. Businesses of all sizes are seeking ways to connect with consumers and employees, and FaceFlow is a free way to do just that.

Free online video calls

While the appeal of free online video calls is obvious for the average consumer, there are many benefits for working professionals, especially small business owners with tight budgets. FaceFlow is just over 24 months old and is steadily gaining in interest and popularity for its video chat services. FaceFlow is a free online service that allows you to connect with friends, family members, business partners, or even complete strangers.

For you, part of running your business may mean that you need to communicate with contractors or remote employees. While regular online text chat or a phone conversation can be helpful, a video chat is ideal. This way, you can determine someone’s true meaning and intention from facial and voice cues, which often get misunderstood and taken out of context over text chatting or emails. While many of FaceFlow’s competitors offer similar services, FaceFlow is unique because you can chat with up to four people at one time, as a large group, revolutionizing and reinventing mediocre conference calls.

If you prefer to have the option to video chat or live text chat with your employees, clients, or business partners, FaceFlow gives you that option. You can easily switch between the two at your convenience. Other features include a full screen chat mode, easy-to-use video chat invite through a simple link, and everyone involved in your chat can watch the same YouTube video simultaneously. How’s that for productivity? Using FaceFlow for your professional needs means that you can retain your budget and also that you don’t have to download any software. All video chats are hosted on FaceFlow’s website, meaning your computers won’t be bogged down with unnecessary software and required software updates.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can use FaceFlow to reach out to potential clients and customers through their random chat system, but the random system is most likely just a novelty. Consider it a new and unique way to market your business, and it’s free. As of February of this year, FaceFlow provides video chatting services to over 250,000. And while their services are limited to being web-based, they’re currently working on a mobile extension.
