What is Video Call?

Video call is allowing the participants to see each other as they talk. Video calling is just like a regular phone call, except you can see the person you’re calling and they can see you.  Video calls are made using a computer’s webcam or other electronic devices with a video-capable camera, like a smartphone, tablet, or video-capable phone system.
