Multi Platform Messengers


Standard Member
Hi folks.

As many of you know, I am a Geordie living in Manchester!

As a result, I regularly use MSN, Yahoo, AIM and Skype to keep in touch with the family 'back home' and let them chat to my son, Samuel, 3.

I am wondering if there is a single messenger program available that will work over all platforms AND allow webcam. I have found some that allow chat and the sending of files, but don't allow video - and as it's the grandson they want to see most, this is a must!!

Should also add I'm looking for something free!

Anyone got any ideas?

What are all platforms? Are you looking for smartphone/tablet support as well (symbian/android/iOS/WindowsPhone/etc.)?

One of the big names like Skype is probably your best bet if you want really wide support.
