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.
Comparison between IMO and Skype
- You cannot use it without internet connectivity. In fact, that is the issue with all instant messengers.
- It uses quite much of battery.
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.
