It feels like centuries ago when Skype became the pioneer of video calling and connecting with your loved ones across oceans. Now, since its inception, newer and possibly better video calling platforms have risen. While the most popular ones are more or less the same, they still have their own distinct user base. IMO is one such app that, like WhatsApp and Skype, allows you to connect with your friends and family worldwide with other messaging features.
When you download IMO, you’ll notice the peculiar small size of the app. Unlike other apps of its type such as WhatsApp, IMO only weighs 6 MB which makes you question its quality. Surprisingly the size does not compromise on its quality and IMO has in fact an incredible, if not the best, video quality.
IMO prides itself on delivery high quality video calling as well as voice calls on both Android and iOS devices. It also facilitates a chat feature which is almost identical to WhatsApp. On the chat, you can send text and even send stickers just like any big messaging application.
The slim high definition video calling in IMO isn’t the only feature it is known for. The app also offers free and unlimited space and storage for video and voice calls. In fact, you can use the video call feature on even 2G as well as 3G, 4G or WiFi.
Apart from the privacy concerns, the user interface or UI of the app can be slightly baffling. For one, you might require some time to navigate around the app. You might even face difficulty finding the logout option. Hint: you can find it in the Advanced Settings. The UI can be clumsy but there’s no denying that the outlook of the app itself is clean and simple.
Some users of the app have also complained of below par voice quality of the app. While the video calling quality remains top standard, the company should focus on improving the actual quality of the voice itself.
