Considering buying my first android may I ask which program is android's equivalent to facetime and is the app available on iOS?

 

Thank you for your time,

I've not bothered checking really. I installed Skype on the phone and use that as it's cross-platform.

Basically Skype.  Most manufacturers implement their own video calling solution but I've NEVER got any to work.

Yup.  Skype is the video app that works across multiple platforms.

Hello,

 

I havent heard much from Facetime's usage. I wasnt even sure it was dropped from iOS....

FaceTime on iOS still works and recently gained audio-only calls.

On Android, I think the closest thing is Skype right now. But I wouldn't put it past Google to integrate Google Hangouts more prominently into future Android versions.

The closest thing to Facetime is Google Hangouts and yes it's on the app store too for iOS devices.

FaceTime Video / Audio still runs on iOS and I believe the Audio version also runs on OS X Mavericks. I'm trying out Google Hangouts on iOS since I have a Google Voice number. So, I think when 4.4 comes out, it's gonna be worthwhile for you and your buddies who'll take advantage of Google+.

although there are many apps that do what facetime does, you will NEVER find one as good. Even though apple was a late to the game with facetime, it is DRASTICALLY a better experience. Cleaner, clearer and crisper in ever way for both audio and video. I have used dozens of different phones from nexuses' to Notes 2's, s3', iphone 4, 5 etc and also tried the various apps like hangouts, skype, facetime, etc. in each and every case FACETIME was easily the best by far.
