The Tango video calling app recently got an update to version 1.7, and as if to flaunt the fact that it supports incoming calls when not running in the background in Skype’s face, the app has added a toggle to allow users to disable this feature.

The apps is important to demonstrate that not receiving VOIP calls in the background is not a platform limitation but due to Skype’s archaic code, and provides a handy, free and cross-platform alternative to Skype if this functionality is needed.

The Tango app can be downloaded from Marketplace here.
