T-Mobile Video Calling launching today on Note 5 and S6 edge+, expanding to more devices soon

tmobilevideocallingofficial

After beefing up messaging with its Advanced Messaging feature, T-Mobile is now turning its attention to video calling.

T-Mobile Video Calling is a new feature that’s baked directly into your phone’s regular dialer. When you decide you want to make a video call, simply tap the video call button that’ll be displayed next to contacts that can receive a video call. If a particular contact can’t take a video call, the button will be grayed out. T-Mo says that its working to let you use this built-in video calling to customers on other networks.

The new T-Mobile Video Calling feature works on any LTE connection and uses data from your high-speed allotment, but it also works over Wi-Fi. You can switch between the two types of connections, and if you end up moving from LTE or Wi-Fi to a slower data service, your video call will automatically be switched to voice-only. Move back to LTE or Wi-Fi and you’ll be able to switch back to video by tapping a button.

T-Mobile Video Calling is launching today on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ via software update. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will get their own updates starting next week, and T-Mo says that by the end of 2015, three more devices will gain Video Calling support.

There are lots of video calling apps out there, but if you want to use them with someone else, the recipient will need that same app installed on their phone. With this new Video Calling feature, T-Mobile wants to eliminate that requirement by baking its video calling support directly into the device’s dialer, making it easy to start a video call and eliminating the need for your recipient to install another app (so long as they’ve got a compatible phone, that is).

    Does this mean the galaxy s6 will be getting Advanced Messaging next week then as well?

    • SEBA

      That’s a good question…. Let me know if it does.

    • vinnyjr

      yes it will.

  • sosarozay300

    three more devices, i wonder if the new iphones will have it

    • taron19119

      It won’t

      • Fabian Cortez

        You don’t know that.

        • taron19119

          Apple already has a video chatting app call FaceTime and they won’t add another one

        • Fabian Cortez

          Why wouldn’t they add a layer? They did with VoLTE. After all, they already have FaceTime audio that associates with your phone number.

          ViLTE would be used for people who don’t have FaceTime, just like how RCS would be used for users without iMessage.

          All speculation of course.

    When will g4 and gs5 get it

  • brybry

    How much data is this going to use? and is it going to count towards your data limit?

      From the article….

      > The new T-Mobile Video Calling feature works on any LTE connection and uses data from your high-speed allotment, but it also works over Wi-Fi.

  • NardVa

    3 more devices? WTF.We need this on the LG3, LG4, GS5, M9, and countless other flagship devices.

  • hopefully S6 users get to try this and that Advanced Messaging next week.

  • kgraham182

    This is cool, can’t wait til T-Mobile update their iOS and Windows devices to enable this feature. Or is T-Mobile strictly an Android network, that allows limited access to iOS and Windows devices.

    • qmc

      T-Mobile doesn’t control iOS. They can’t make it happen.

      • Fabian Cortez

        T-Mobile doesn’t control iOS. They can’t make it happen.

        Care to explain VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling on iOS?

    • vinnyjr

      IOS on any Carrier has this feature.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    VerZion already has this & it’s awesome

  • lhernana2j

    Until it rolls around to all TMobile phones this is pretty much useless. I have the 6+ but not everyone is upgrading.

    • archerian

      Even if all phones on T-mobile become compliant (which is not going to happen) all your friends aren’t on T-mobile so if you wanted to use this it would be YAMA (yet another messaging app)

  • Ordeith

    We already have Skype.
    Platform agnostic. Carrier agnostic. I don’t know why anyone would use anything that locks them in to a device or carrier if they don’t have to.

    • Chris

      For those people that doesn’t need a separate account.

      Let’s say you have a family with teens. Parents (being older generation) probably doesn’t have skype or viber or whatever other video calling software out there.
      They can start video call without having to go through creating a separate account.

      If anything, it won’t really lock them down to 1 device as any T-mobile phone in future will start having this feature.

      • Ordeith

        If they have a Windows device, they have an account.

        • ArchangelRenzoku

          What’s their market share again? ~3% of all smartphones or something?

        • Ordeith

          100 million users and counting. but even ignoring that, “Windows” means phones, tablets, computers, game consoles, etc. and last I checked they had quite the market in computers.

      T-mobile hopes this becomes adopted by other operators. This isn’t even an LTE Standard or part of any LTE Release, it’s pushed by the GSMA which is more of a lobbying organization than a technical forum like the ETSI or 3GPP. They are trying to regain the control they lost to OTT providers and prevent becoming dumb pipes for data.

      • Ordeith

        They should be dumb pipes for data. We should resist any attempts for them to be in control of anything else.

        • Fabian Cortez

          Dumb pipes huh?

          Please let us all know how QoS is supposed to be handled then? I guess you’re okay with your voice call being put behind the queue then.

        Yeah, except you once again don’t know what you’re talking about.

        This is most definitely part of a 3GPP release. Look up release 11 and onward.

        Being consistently factually incorrect must be instinctual at this point…

        • archerian

          Let me dumb it down for you – which Technical Specification Document details the RCS specs? I’m asking for the TSG code, like 36.331, 25.331 etc. R11 is a release number, so which TS under R11 has RCS specs?

    • matt

      its because facetime doesn’t want our credit card number in case we want to call someone in london. plus the general fear factor of it being controlled by Microsoft. another issue i have with Skype is when you DIE, they keep your $

      my brother died and skype would not refund us his 9.72

      also i believe Skype’s video quality is lower then facetime, facebime is based on h.264 and AAC-ELD

      • matt

        oh i can see it now. I’m calling my friend in atlanta using Skype and then a blue screen comes up and says “We will return to your FREE CALL after these very important messages”

    • matt

      the iPhone is totally carrier neutral. the unlocked phones now do not care at all what carrier you have. i don’t understand why people choose android.

  • elmodern

    one of my close friends also has a note 5, so we tested this out about a hr ago, its really nice.

    man, they forgot about the galaxy Note 4??? The note 4 is obsolete!!!

  • TheVorlon

    “There are lots of video calling apps out there”

    And for some strange reason T-Mobile feels the need to make another app that is incompatible with all of them.

    • Ordeith

      Some strange reason? They’ve seen how hangouts locks people into Google, and iMessage and Facetime locks people into Apple. They want in on that racket, and came out with something they think will lock people into T-Mobile.

      It’s just like back in the day when the ISP gave you an email address. The smart people never used it and got their own.

      • Fabian Cortez

        Yeah, except that’s not what’s going on here.

        This is part of an LTE release. In other words: a standard.

        • Ordeith

          Standards interop. This doesn’t.

        • Fabian Cortez

          Standards interop. This doesn’t.

          I see. So because other carriers are behind means T-Mobile is not following a standard.

          Did we forget that Verizon launched this earlier in the year? Did we not pay attention to the fact that T-Mobile is looking to work with other carriers to make this cross-carrier?

          Maybe you weren’t around when SMS was not cross-carrier.

        • Alex Zapata

          Ah yes, I remember the days when SMS wasn’t interoperable. Those were dark times…..

          Just for fun, I’ll add other new technology (at the time) that launched on select devices but eventually became ubiquitous: MMS, WAP browsers, HTML browsers, GPS, Wi-Fi, HSPA, LTE, etc.

        • Shawn

          That’s exactly what T-Mobile aiming for. Video calling and Advanced Messaging across all carriers and eventually every platform. Without the need of a 3rd party app, some ppl aren’t getting it.

        • archerian

          This is part of an LTE release.

          When did the GSMA start defining standards for LTE? RCS/Advanced Messaging is a GSMA standard and last time I checked, LTE was run by 3GPP/ETSI/ATIS etc..

          ViLTE

          From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

          ViLTE, an acronym for Video over LTE, is a conversational (i.e. person to person) video service based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core network. It has specific profiles for the control and media planes of the video service and uses LTE as the radio access medium. The service as a whole is governed by the GSM Association in PRD IR.94.[1][2]

          Mechanism

          ViLTE uses the same control plane protocol as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), namely the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). The IMS core network along with the applicable Application Server (AS) performs the call control. ViLTE uses the H.264 codec to encode and decode the video stream.[3] The H.264 codec delivers superior quality as compared to the low bit rate 3G-324M codec that is used in 3G conversational video calls.

          It is vital that ViLTE video calls are allocated appropriate Quality of Service (QoS)
          to differentiate and prioritize this delay and jitter sensitive
          conversational traffic from other streaming video traffic that is not as
          delay or jitter sensitive. The mechanism used is called QoS Class
          Identifier (QCI). The ViLTE bearer traffic is typically allocated QCI=2, and the SIP-based IMS signalling QCI=5.[4]

    • Fabian Cortez

      This is native and uses your phone number…

      • Nick

        But you can’t call a tablet or computer, this is useless. If it is baked, it will only call smartphones whereas Skype can be called on Desktop, laptop, tablets, etc unless tmobile comes up with anything that is also available on different platforms others than smartphones.

        • archerian

          This solution from T-mobile will only call CERTAIN smartphones, and currently only on the T-mobile network. So we might as well wait around for more devices to be supported and for operators to work out inter-connecting this.

    • PC_Tool

      There’s an xkcd comic for that somewhere… ;-)

  • Jess

    Downloading, but heck I’m still waiting on the G4 update lol. Anyone in here that still hasn’t gotten it?

    • dtam

      nope, my wife got her update a day after it was announced here

      • Jess

        Oh OK, just find it odd the past few updates I’ve gotten like that same morning so I was starting to wonder.

        • Nate

          My Wife has a G4 and it updated a couple days ago. Had to connect to wifi in order to download it though. Would not download via OTA.

  • archerian

    What will the millions who don’t use T-Mobile or those specific devices do for video chat? Oh yeah, Skype or some other platform/operator independent app that everyone else has been using for years.

    No point implementing a standard no one adopts especially when there are more robust options already heavily used. Maybe T-Mobile will launch the Esperanto language pack for all new T-Mobile phones now.

    • Fraydog

      I get the reservations that Video Calling is on a limited number of devices, but T-Mobile has to get it started somewhere in order to eventually spread it across their line of smartphones. This is going to eventually spread to Verizon and AT&T as they implement their RCS solutions.

      • Adam

        I like the idea of added competition, but believe it will be hard to put a dent in Skype, because Skype has so much market share already.

        • Fabian Cortez

          I don’t think that’s the point of this.

      • Fabian Cortez

        Verizon already launched ViLTE. So there’s goes that doomsday theory that T-Mobile is hoping other carriers will support it.

        AT&T will eventually get on board at the same pace they are with VoLTE.

        U.S. Cellular is testing VoLTE so expect the other IP goodies (RCS, ViLTE, etc.) to follow suit.

        As for Sprint, well, yeah, we all know how that goes.

      • archerian

        Inter-operability should come with this day one, otherwise it will be a feature people will install, use for a day or two and they will revert to Skype or Hangouts when they notice several of their contacts can’t use this as they are on an in-compatible network or device.

        The RCS standard doesn’t really lay out how different operators will inter-connect, so while they figure that out, adoption will suffer.

        • Fraydog

          Still, I don’t see how you can point the finger at T-Mobile when their CTO is trying to work at the level of the 3GPP so interoperability is a legitimate possibility. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on that.

        • Fabian Cortez

          You can’t reason with someone who doesn’t believe that this is part of 3GPP standards.

        • archerian

          I don’t have to believe or dis-believe anything, RCS/Advanced Messaging is a GSMA standard, not 3GPP. 3GPP/ETSI have done workshops to test inter-operability, but RCS is not a 3GPP standard. RCS works over Wifi so would you say it’s a Wifi-Alliance standard too then?

          Like I mentioned in my other comment to you which you conveniently ignored, all 3GPP standards are part of a TSG and have a TS code. RCS is not under any TSG.

          Take time to actually read RCS specs, which are btw under the GSMA site and not 3GPP. You will see that it’s a vague description of functional features, and does not talk about concrete implementation or inter-operability.

        • archerian

          What an idiot, you keep saying R11 but do you even know what that means? If its a 3GPP standard it will have a TS document under a release. There is no TS for RCS under any LTE Release let alone R11. Because its not a standard specified by 3GPP.

          RCS isn’t a 3GPP spec, you cannot escape that by calling me a troll. But that is your SOP when you get caught with blantant speculation. You keep embarrassing yourself with your ignorance, but I guess you have no shame in that.

        • archerian

          I’m not pointing a finger at T-mobile saying did something wrong by deploying RCS. I’m just saying it’s not really useful when its not designed to be widely supported today when the success of a messaging platform depends on widest reach.

          I didn’t know Ray was working with the 3GPP for RCS inter-operability. Can you provide the link? RCS isn’t part of the 3GPP standard, it’s a GSMA spec. so not sure why Ray would do anything with the 3GPP. And even then, T-mobile’s clout at the 3GPP is very low, I don’t know if there are actually many T-mobile representatives in at TSGs.

        And how many users are actually using it? If it were a hit, we’d know about it. And right now you cannot call a non-T-mobile user using this, this will kill mass adoption.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          its only on Andriod devices

    • elmodern

      Its more of a facetime type thing, you can just call instead of having to download an app for it. except for its only t mobile to t mobile, but i think android should just incorporate it into native Android. would make so much more sense.

      “There are lots of video calling apps out there, but if you want to use them with someone else, the recipient will need that same app installed on their phone. With this new Video Calling feature, T-Mobile wants to eliminate that requirement by baking its video calling support directly into the device’s dialer, making it easy to start a video call and eliminating the need for your recipient to install another app (so long as they’ve got a compatible phone, that is).”

      I think they can tackle more then just coverage and speed. Stop thinking like old Blackberry.

    • Shawn

      Where have you been, T-Mobile been working on their data speed and coverage. I take it that you don’t read or research much about your own carrier.

  • I buy unlocked Nexus phones so they don’t ever have any of T-Mobile’s “special” features. I would much rather use Hangouts anyway. If they could make their text and video chat systems work seamlessly with Hangouts, then they might have something worth talking about.

      And what happens when Google bakes it in to Android?

      • I know that Apple and Microsoft bake Wi-Fi Calling in their devices now, a feature from T-Mobile. Imagine if Google follows suit with their phones… Then the OP will have no place to run.

    Note 4, Note Edge, S5, One M9, One M8, G4, G3. These are all the likely candidates to get this update by the end of the year.

  • Mike Palomba

    I hope apple decides to add this into the next iPhone. Now that 2 carriers have a service like this they really should

    • matt

      you never heard of facetime?

      • Mike Palomba

        Yea, ever heard of FaceTime with an android device? No? That’s because it doesn’t exist.

  • Philip

    T-mobile, where is LP 5.1.1 for Note 4?

  • Philip

    Hangout got video. WeChat got video Skype is video. FB messenger is video. Now T-mobile is video. I guess more is better.

  • Always last

    The sad part is the international version of our phones (I believe original Galaxy til now) has had video calling for years. Why are we always the last to get it?

  • AA-Ron

    What you folks are failing to get is hat tmobile is trying to make this a standard like sms, mms. No need to sign into an app. No extra account to sign into. You just dial a user and video call them no matter what Phone OS or what carrier they have, it just works. Call it vms or something.

    Anyone having issues with Text Messaging? It’s slow and sometimes freezes on S6.

  • Jamieson Byrd

    I luv the option but unfortunately, I don’t know many TMo subscribers. The ones I do know, don’t seem to be using a Note 5 or S6 Edge+. Sucks to be so far ahead of the curve. Lol

  • Brittny Thompson

    This doesn’t work on my S5. Will this update come out soon?

  • Ty Coon

    i have the Note 5 and when i try to make a video call to someone else with a note 5 as well i get a failed message saying (video calls can not be made to this number) what do i do?
