Spin Video Calls offers free group video chat service with built-in advanced collaboration features. It allows you to have video conversations with as many as 10 people at the same time. It offers group sharing features that allow everyone in the gathering to watch online videos together, listen to streaming music, and collaborate when editing documents. Developed by Net Power & Light, this video chat iPad app can also be used on your iPhone.
Popular video chat services usually offer free one-to-one video calls. However, they will ask you to upgrade to a paid service if you want to get more features such as document collaboration or multi-party conferencing.
Today, you can now enjoy free unlimited air time on group video calling for up to 10 persons by using an app called Spin.
When you open Spin, you will see one large tile on the home screen which represents your profile. This tile can be customized by adding your photo. You can import people from your contact list or add some friends manually and Spin will create tiles for each of them. Tiles ‘float’ on the home screen and you can arrange them in any way you want.
You can start a video chat, called Gathering, by dragging contact tiles inside your own tile. You can only do this if you have an account with Spin but those invited to the Gathering don’t need to create an account. They will just receive an invitation link to your Gathering.
During a chat session, the tiles go live with video and audio. You can then moderate the video conference to organize the discussion. Tools such as document collaboration and video and photo sharing are located at the bottom of the screen. Just load content from these tools and the screen will be shared among the participants.
