    IMO is one of the prominent video calling apps that has some promising features. Some of the features that I would appreciate with respect to the application include
    • Application size - The installation file is quite smaller in size. Even after installation it occupies quite less space on your storage
    • Low cache file sizes - App creates very few cache files. That would ensure that you will not face any issues with respect the speed of your phone.
    • Chat Support in addition to video calling - You can use the app to chat with your friends and family just like you would do on WhatsApp and other apps. You can use it to share text, images and videos.
    • Huge sticker listing - IMO comes with a good deal of stickers. It has stickers in over 150 categories. You can create your own stickers as well.
    • High Quality video quality - The application is capable of high-end video and audio quality. IMO works better even in low 2G connectivity also.
    • Group chat support - IMO supports group chats. The feature is equivalent to group chats on WhatsApp. However, video calls in group chats is not possible.
    • Best in class control - You can have a good control over settings and configurations on IMO. That would mean you can set your own preferences on notifications and other options.


    One of the features that sets IMO apart from all other apps is the truly unlimited high-quality voice and video calling. The app has been tested to offer better and clearer voice and video quality even at slower connection speed.
    You can use the app to connect with a user no matter on which network he is.

    Pros
    • You can make high end video and voice calls
    • The app encrypts all your calls. This would ensure privacy of your calls
    • Hundred and thousands stickers makes it one of the best options.
    • Group chat features.


    Cons
    • You cannot use it without internet connectivity. In fact, that is the issue with all instant messengers.
    • It uses quite much of battery.


    Comparison between IMO and Skype
    1. IMO works faster than Skype while handling instant messaging.
    2. Same goes for sharing media files. IMO handles them a little faster than Skype.
    3. IMO offers high-quality video calling. Skype does not seem to be any better than IMO in terms of video quality.
    4. Skype struggles with slow Internet connectivity. IMO can deliver better performance even at slow internet connection.
    5. In terms of interface, IMO offers you a simple and intuitive looks. Skype too is a good interface, but a little complicated.
    6. Skype would expect you to accept a sender before you begin a conversation. This would prevent strangers and spammers from sending you messages. IMO lacks this security feature.
    7. IMO cannot send documents, while Skype lets you send documents.

    Here are some of the answers to your questions regarding the IMO app.

    Features of IMO App

    IMO app is one of the smallest size apps when it comes to VOIP app comparison. For example, Skype and Whatsapp take more space on your device compared to IMO. Also, the amount of time it takes connectivity to happen in between the two host, you'd find IMO app better. There are no additional charges for the call and the video content being streamed. It is just like Whatsapp that uses your native connection - either Wifi or the mobile. You can also avoid downloading when you are on mobile data.

    Calling functionality

    IMO app can be used to communicate with anyone in address book having the app. It can be national or international. So it all depends on how you are connected either through IMO connection or the phone-based contact.

    IMO app is similar to Allo and Whatsapp. It can offer the group chat feature. It can create encrypted message. it can be good for the slow internet in 2g. It can make use of the emoji and stickers across devices smoothly. Connectivity of the app is really good. You'd find better video and audio on the web. You can use it to invite friends from the address book and also through email feature.

    Comparison with Skype

    Think of skype as premium service which has its set of pros and cons. For example.

    1. Skype has premium paid phone network and custom caller ID and device, that's not something IMO app has. It is just device app.
    2. No dedicated number with IMO, whereas Skype premium can give a dedicated number.
    3. Skype is a lot slower than IMO app. Also, skype is heavy on the device with size and background service. IMO app, on the other hand, is more lightweight.
    4. User status can be changed on skype but not on the IMO.
    5. IMO is not suitable for the file transfer. But Skype is good for file transfer and desktop to device sharing.
    6. Conference feature is not available with the IMO but skype free and premium both services has this feature.
    7. IMO app can't make free calls to landline and other mobiles. On the other hand, the Skype can do so in the premium feature.

    These are some of the features and the highlight of the apps. Though due to the user base gathering on other premium networks, IMO app failed to get as many users like skype and Whatsapp.
