TangoTango offers an app that lets users make free video calls from an iPhone or Android devices. Now the company plans to extend the service to include computers. That means you’ll soon be able to make a video call from your PC to a contact using a phone, or vice versa.

The company clearly isn’t the first to market with a cross-platform video communication app. Apple’s FaceTime app for iOS and Mac already offers this, and Skype offers video calling on iOS and some Android devices.

But Tango already supports more mobile devices than Skype or FaceTime and the company has managed to sign up 18 million users in 190 countries already.

The desktop app will be available later this summer, but you can sign up at the Tango website to receive a notification when it’s available for download.
