T-Mobile has unviels a new feature that allows you to make calls from your smartphone’s call log, almost the same way you make normal phone calls and according to the company, you don’t need to download and install any app.
“On devices with T-Mobile Video Calling, small camera icons appear next to contacts with devices able to receive video calls,” said Neville Ray, T-Mobile’s CTO, in a blog post. “If the person you’re calling can’t take video calls, the video call icon is greyed out.”
Currently, it only works for T-Mobile users, i.e. for calls made within the magenta carrier’s network. However, the CTO, Ray reveals that they’re working with others to make it available across wireless networks.
Supported smartphones include Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 edge. The first two already have the feature available through simple software updates, while the latter two will get it next week. Users of these devices can install the update by heading to Settings -> About Device -> Software Update.
Three more devices will be added to the list by the end of the year, Ray said.
