Fring has launched new versions of its apps for iPhone and Android with a new feature the company calls DVQ, or Dynamic Video Quality. Here’s what that means: the apps will detect variations in your internet connection speed and adjust the video quality accordingly.

Previously, if you used Fring to start a video chat with a contact while you were in an area with spotty 3G coverage, you’d get a low quality video signal and be stuck with it for the duration of your call. Now if your reception improves, so does the video. The opposite is also true, which means your video quality could drop during a call, but that’s better than the call just disconnecting altogether.

You can check out a demo video after the break.

Fring for the iPhone is available as a free download from the App Store, while the Android version is available for free from the Android Market.
