Videochat bringt Familie und Freunde aufs Smartphone

Everyone on the screen: video telephony brings the whole family onto their mobile phones

Staying in touch with friends and family has never been more important than now – and despite entry restrictions and contact bans, we can see each other – even if we are thousands of kilometres apart, thanks to video telephony. What's good is that it also works with older smartphones or with a slow Internet connection. We will introduce you to a few apps for your own private video conferencing:
