Voice and video chat app Fring has been working on a new group video feature, and now it’s available for the company’s iPhone and Android apps. You should be able to download the latest version of Fring from the Android Market or the [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fring-video-calls-im/id290948830?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”fring” text=”iTunes App Store”] to start using group video chat later today. As of noon today, neither app store had the updated version.

Fring’s group video calling supports up to 4-way video chat, meaning you can call up to three people on your iPhone or Android device. The app lets you place calls over 3G, 4G, or WiFi networks, although video quality will obviously vary depending on your connection speed.

Users can use the new feature to place video calls between Android and iOS devices for free. Fring also supports free voice calling to other Fring users, and cheap calls to phone numbers at rates that are comparable to Skype’s (and probably a lot cheaper than what your wireless carrier charges for international phone calls).
