If Katz’s statements prove to be true, Yahoo’s adaptable video calling technology will be added feature-rich and accept a abundant beyond ability than Apple’s. FaceTime works amid iPhone 4 users alone and banned abutment to calls over Wi-Fi to advance video alarm quality.

Of course, Apple has complete control over whether Yahoo’s iPhone version of the video calling application sees the light of day.

If Yahoo can introduce an application that supports high-quality video calls (which won’t be an easy feat) between mobile devices and PCs, it will certainly have a distinct advantage over Skype for now.
