Suggestion: Direct Video Call using 3G network.

I found there is not Direct Video Call option in any Android version by default


Like it is in iPhone and Symbian phones, we can do a Video Call directly using the 3G network by dialing the number like we dial it for a normal call.


Samsung and some HTC phones have implemented this in their andriod phones.


I want to suggest please implement this Video calling feature in Sony Xperia phones.


Note: I am not talking about Video call using any Video Calling App like skype or hangout or tango etc. I am talking about direct 3G network Video Call by dialing the number. So better people avoid replying to the post with useless replies Slightly smiling Face

Sorry if this sounds useless but I don't want this feature and if I did then I'm glad I have a choice or apps and not having a system app forced on me is all the better

Re: Suggestion: Direct Video Call using 3G network.

You might be right at your place, many people may not need it because there are many free video calling apps in google play.


But if you believe me, there are still some people here in our region, they do not know how to use google play or a google ID, and if they do not know what is google play how they will download an app for a video call.many people are backword here, some of them even do not know how to use these video call APPS.


The purpose of my this suggestion is for those people who are not able to download and who are not able to use these video callings apps. if this features enables, they can just make a video call like a normal call only network data charges apply and that is it.


I have also requested the same feature to android.

You are right for people with family and working in the field video call app is a relevant app. I would want that as an inbuilt app. Most phones have that and i feel it's basic
