The smartness in the smartphones is due to the under lying mobile operating system like Androis, iOS, Windows phone OS, Firefox OS, Tizen OS and many more.
Because od these smartphones the way of communication has really evolved extensively.
Now a days nobody is using SMS because WhatsApp and like application has replaced the stuff.
We can now share not only text messages but also video contents and images almost at free of cost.

Similar to all of the other messenger applications Skype has launched it’s latest Skype Qik application that shares video messages free of cost.

Probably this will replace the text messaging completely in future.

Description of Skype Qik from Google Play Store:

Introducing Skype Qik (say “quick”), a free* video messenger made for capturing moments and sharing laughs throughout your day.
Set up a group and immediately start shooting and swapping videos.
Send something to crack your friends up, or show off a new dance move-whatever you want.
New messages are added to a chat that you can watch like a movie with a single tap.
Qik even lets you erase your video right out of the chat.**

Don’t just send just text or photos.
Go full-video with Qik.

What can you do with Qik?

  • Create groups in a flash: grab a bunch of friends from your phone’s address book and start a private chat.
  • Pre-record and send video clips (Qik Fliks): can’t respond right away? Thumbs-ups, smileys and more, starring you.
  • Erase your message and it disappears from the conversation.**
  • Keep it fresh-messages are automatically erased from Qik after two weeks.
  • Start a conversation any time-no login, usernames, or passwords needed.

* Mobile data rates may apply.. We recommend using an unlimited data plan or WiFi connection.
** It may be possible for recipients to capture and save videos elsewhere before you delete them from Qik.

I have personally used this application on my Moto G and Nexus 4, on which it really works very fine and stole my heart.

Skype is known from so long for it’s video conferencing over internet.
Even facebook is using skype for it’s video chatting.

You can do even more with this application.
You just have to open up yourself to adapt new applications in the market, that’s all.
