However, have you ever pondered upon the technology that has made it possible? No? Well, this is VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol, which has made communication a breeze.

During all these years, the technology has only been developed further, and now it has been extended to Android mobile devices. In this article, we will take a look at 5 of the best VoIP based apps for Android mobiles.

ooVoo is an awesome app that can be used for making free video calls. The app helps in making free video calls and voice calls, as well as sending free instant messages. The users can use this app to find and make video calls to those in the Facebook friend list.

This is another VoIP based app that can be used on Android based smart phones. KakaoTalk can be used for making free texting and free calls.

LINE is used by millions of users in more than 230 countries all over the world and is considered to be one of the best VoIP based apps. It has a message function that helps users send messages with a number of colorful icons, images and even information about the current location at any given point in time. The funny stickers that are available with the messaging option really make messaging a great fun for the users.
