TinyChat FB brings 12 Person Facebook Video Chat to iOS devices

It was only a few days back that Facebook announced the Facebook Messenger app for iOS and Android devices. It’s pretty great, but it lacks video chat, which we all wish was included with the app. It has been said that they will be launching Video chat on both iOS and Android devices pretty soon. It’s only a matter of time.

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Tiny Chat, a free web based video chatting service. Now there’s an app for iOS devices that can be used to make video calls with your Facebook friends and that too about 12 of them, at the same time. Group video calling comes to Facebook, but unofficially.

A really nice app then, don’t you think? Well, it is a bit confusing at first, but once you’ve figured out everything, it’s as easy as sending a video chat invite on Facebook. After you’ve installed the app, you’ll need to sign in with your id and give access to your profile. Then, select up to 12 friends to group video chat with and it’ll invite all those friends with a Message saying You have been invited for a video chat with so and so and a link directs you to the TinyChat web service.

And yes, you don’t need to have anything installed on your computer, other than a microphone and webcam and some Adobe flash capable browser. Check out this nicely tailored video made for TinyChat FB after the break.

So, once you’ve got everything set up, the app works really well on iPhone 4, iPad 2 and the iPod Touch. If you happen to have a slow internet connection, then you should probably not try this. Did I mention that this is a free app?

Yes, you can download TinyChat FB for free from the App Store right away and enjoy free group video chat with your Facebook friends.
