T-Mobile's Newly-launched Native Video Calling Feature Is Available On Newest Samsung Phones

T-Mobile has launched a recent feature that lets you create video calls from within your smartphone’s dialer, similar to the way you create normal phone calls. Dubbed Video Calling, the feature doesn't require you to download and install additional apps, the company said.

"On devices with T-Mobile Video Calling, small capturing camera icons appear next to contacts with devices able to receive video calls," assumed Neville Ray, T-Mobile's CTO, in a blog post. "If the person you’re calling can’t hold video calls, the video call icon is greyed out."

Currently, the feature only works for T-Mobile users, i.e. for calls made within the magenta carrier's network. However, Ray assumed they're working working with others to create it available across wireless networks.

Supported handsets 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 acquire 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 discontinue of the year, Ray said.
