Microsoft Shows Off Tango Video Chat App on the HTC Titan

When Windows Phone Mango was launched, it fascinating looks and features may have enchanted many of you, at least for some time. But the spell didn’t last long when it was realized that majority of the features carried out are just to catch up with the competing environment.

The only features that need to be appreciated in the Mango are the Bing integration as well as the voice-to-chat capabilities. The rest of all the features are nothing but a part of catching up. The recent inclusion of video chat app on the Mango-powered HTC Titan is another such instance.

Name sharing has become routine practice in the market which is quite unfortunate and often confusing. The Tango video chat app (not to confuse with the forthcoming WP7 update codenamed as Tango) is certainly a cool application to be integrated on Mango, perhaps released a little late to say. Aaron Woodman – a member of Windows Phone team excitedly describes the working of the video chat on exclusive 4.7 inch Titan screen in the given video. The Tango for Windows Phone works similar as the FaceTime for Apple and the Tango app for Android and allows the users to have real-time video chat experience. Another strange but true fact is Google Talk has not yet able to worked out this.

The most remarkable feature of this Tango app for Mango is its ability to function on different platforms – it has support for iOS, PC and Android. Another striking fact is the Microsoft’s strong stake in an impressive VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service named Skype, which implies that the present Tango app might come up with strong competition on the Windows platform in the coming days.
