The Tango video calling service, is installed on the HTC Titan and HTC Radar.Â The cross-platform video service, which supports the iPhone, Android and now Windows Phone 7, has extended its service to the PC also now.
The service is used by more than 23 million people in 190 countries, and is adding 70,000 to 80,000 new members each day
“Our ability to develop Tango for personal computers, while continuing to ensure that Tango is available on more than 450 mobile devices within our first year, is a testament to the dedication and efforts of our team in the U.S. and China,” said Uri Raz, Tango’s co-founder and CEO. “Introducing Tango for the PC has been the number one request by our users, and with 1.5 billion PCs in use worldwide today it’s a platform we wanted to embrace. We’ve doubled our usage since June and introducing Tango for the PC will accelerate our growth.”
“Last year we hit the ground running and pushed the limits of what could be done on mobile,” said Eric Setton, cofounder and CTO of Tango. “We lead the market on mobile and will continue to based on new partnerships paired with our aggressive product roadmap. We’ve delivered on virality and growth, quality, hiring, and coverage of devices and platforms, and the next 12 months will focus on monetization.”
While Windows Phone 7.5 does not have a native video calling service yet, OEMs are dependent on these 3rd party services to provide video calling functionality.Â It is however hoped when Skype is finally integrated into Windows Phone 7 this will no longer be necessary.
