This new service not only features group video chatting, but also has text chatting and even allows any member of the group to share a computer screen with the others.
3G, for Bharti Airtel, will mostly be about video and driving data consumption.
Some systems involve bluetooth technology to connect users in locations such as bars and clubs.
