The era of using actual land line telephones have all but come to an end. Between easily accessible Internet and cheaper smartphones, it’s easy to cut that cord for good. You’ll still need to find a data connection like a carrier plan or WiFi, but otherwise every app on this list lets you make free calls. Here are the best free calls apps for Android!


Facebook Messenger

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Facebook apps are generally pretty average. They're clunky, slow, and eat up quite a bit of battery. However, virtually everybody uses Facebook. That makes it a pretty decent option. Facebook Messenger is Facebook's standalone messaging app. It features free messaging, free calls, and free video chats. The app even has some games to play. The only thing you'll need is to be friends on Facebook with somebody and you're good to go, although in some cases even that's not necessary. It's a good app to try because it's easier to convince people to use Facebook than it is to switch to something different.

Google Duo

Price: Free

Google Duo is a video chatting app. It's also one of the easier free calls apps to use. You simply download it, open it, put in your phone number, and you can start making free video calls. The only downside is that the other person will also have to be using Google Duo. However, the good news is that Google Duo is free and multi-platform. That means it works on iOS and Android at least. It only does video calls, but they're of good quality and you can make as many of them as you want. It's a good option for those who want something a little more personal.

GrooVeIP

Price: Free / $6.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
GrooVeIP is a good app for free calls. It'll give you an actual US phone number that you can actually give to people. The service itself supports both calls and texts. The free part is a little iffy, though. You can earn credits for free. However, you'll have to complete offers and watch ad videos in order to do so. It's a little tedious, but it definitely works. Of course, they have the option to purchase credits as well. The service will give you free credits to use monthly as well. Some have complained about things like voice quality, but free is free.

Hangouts

Price: Free

Hangouts is Google's current champion in the messaging apps territory. It also comes with a ton of features. You can voice call, video call, and message anyone for free as long as they are also using Hangouts. You can also download the Hangouts Dialer app that lets you call most US and Canada numbers for free without using your cell plan minutes. It's a powerful combination for people that want free calls. The service is free to sign up for. All you need is a Google account.

Skype

Price: Free with in-app purchases
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Skype is one of the most popular free calls apps out there. Its hallmark feature is the ability to be used on mobile phones, computers, tablets, and most other computing devices. You can send text messages, voice calls, and video calls for free to other people who use Skype. You will have to pay for credits to use if you want to call actual phone numbers. However, given that Skype has Facebook and Microsoft account integration, chances are many people you know already use it anyway.

Signal Private Messenger

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Signal Private Messenger is an increasingly popular service that focuses on security. It's open source and it encrypts everything it sends. That includes voice calls, text messages, and everything between. It offers free calls and texts, although other people will have to be using Signal Private Messenger as well. Everything is completely free, at least for now. It's definitely the go-to option for those who want free calls but are also concerned about security.

Slack

Price: Free

We're reaching a little bit with Slack. However, it does actually make free calls to other people who use Slack. It's an increasingly popular chat service that's aimed at businesses both big and small. You'll be able to create text channels, message people individually, and it comes with integration with a ton of other apps. It's also cross-platform and calls are easy enough to make. They may be a bit fuzzy if you're talking to people on the other side of the world, though. For now, Slack is entirely free to use for virtually everybody.

TextNow

Price: Free with in-app purchases
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
TextNow is an app that offers free texting and free calls. You'll get your own dedicated phone number that you can actually give to other people. You can call people in the US and Canada free of charge. However, you'll have to pay in order to call International numbers. That's not great if you live outside of the US, but this is exactly what you're looking for if you do live there. The entire thing is funded by advertising, although you can sign up for a plan to remove those entirely. This is the best app to make free calls right now.

Viber

Price: Free with in-app purchases
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Viber started life as a basic VoIP service. It has since expanded into a full-blown service that offers text chats, voice chats, and even video chats. You can call anyone else who uses Viber free of charge. Like Skype, there's a small fee if you want to call phone numbers for people who don't use Viber. It also comes with a ton of other features. Some of them, like hidden messaging, can be useful. However, many of them are goofy little things like stickers that don't really matter too much.

WhatsApp

Price: Free

Last up is the venerable WhatsApp. It started out as a text-only platform but has slowly evolved to include free calls and free video chats. Like most, you can only use the free calls feature if you're connecting with another person who uses WhatsApp. Since it's one of the most popular chat apps in existence, it shouldn't be too bad to get other people on it. It's huge, its powerful, and it works really well. It also has a variety of other features that help make the experience that much better.

Hi everyone! I'm Joe Hindy the Android Authority app guy!
  • Jeremy

    You forgot ooVoo.

  • I usually use Skype.

  • Thanks Jeremy! Added that to the list.

  • Bshamshir

    You forgot grooveip

    • Drunkfux

      groove ip no longer works unless you have a google voice in the US for calling in the US or canada Only… since free voicecalls went down for anyone on google…

      • slushee

        just installed groove ip today, on my android device. I live in canada and can call canada and US free, I just don’t have a number people can call me at. As far as I can tell its still working just fine.

    • As of 2014 GrooveIP no longer works with Google Voice. They have a new platform now.

      • J.R. Shambaugh

        It still owrks as long as you don’t upgrade to Lollipop. i never had a problem until 2 days ago when i upgraded.you can still use GrooVeIP, but you have to create a new number with Ring To, which is how they handle their calling now. I moved out of the country, but still call back to US for free. You can call US and Canada for free from ANY country.

        • Jim DeSantis

          Hey J.R, went to RingTo to check it out and can’t see how to create a new number. They don’t explain it. It appears I have to use my real number to make it work. Can you point me to how you pulled off what you describe? I am going to the UK and need to make calls to landlines in the US and within the UK over WiFi from my tab/phone.
          Thanks

          • J.R. Shambaugh

            Sorry, that was a while ago. I ditched GrooVeIP when they enabled full calling within Hangouts. I live on an island and call the States frequently for free. Landlines, mobiles, no matter. Calls within UK would be charged Google’s LD rates, probably a few cents a minute. I think you just link it to your GV number. Been a while since I switched.
            Hope that helps.

          • Jim DeSantis

            Thanks JR for taking the time to clarify and update your situation. I have been leaning towards Hangouts. I have a GV number and GTalk activated on my PC. Haven’t bought the tab/phone yet. I am in the research stage right now.

  • I was a happy GTalk-user on my N900, i got voice and video calls without problem. On my new GalaxySII I lost that function.

  • Thedoors

    netTalk is free to call any phone in the US they dont even need to have the app

  • Swag

    Are there any apps for calling anyone for free even if they don’t have the app other than netTalk

    • pepito321

      VOX IS OFFERING 60 mins free to all international, yes.

    • Bilal

    • Brian Cai

      Upptalk

    • J.R. Shambaugh

      see my comment above

  • How many of the above can actually make free calls to land lines? I use groove ip.

  • R Nair

    To make voip calls from your mobile to landline in another country – What works for me is this – Nokia E series and voip calling cards – almost any software works on an E. Like e72, e71 etc. Near landline clarity, minimal lag. Gloriously stuck with E series for some time, even for other reasons. However, I would consider changing to galaxy or blackberry if the same cheap and simple voip software to call landline was available there.

  • it nimbuzz it supports at Costa Rica… I have and Nexus S

  • Circa Dtm

    Line2 will generate a ”cell number” for your app, letting you choose your own location for the area code, so you can call and recieve calls from/to other cell phones and landlines (does not require them to have the app). i found it to be the best app out there, but its only a 7 day trial.. crack the trial to a full version and you have the best app out..

    • RashadPoston36

      How Do U Do That Crack It

      • Bryan

        Download 4Shared and you can download any paid app for free!

        • Adam2323

          An easier way is simply to pay for the app rather than making the developers work for free.

          • johnd16s

            ok smartass, why dont you pay for me.

    • crecy

      Please help me to crack the 7 day trial, does it still works ?

  • Circa Dtm

    also good about line2, you dont need to have service. it works off wifi. ive been making free calls+texts with my phone not even hooked up to metro yet. very nice

  • Viber, Skype are my choices

  • G.I Joe is a Hoe fo Sho

    The best app is nettalk. you can call landlines and cellphones over wifi for free. All you have to do is make an account on their website and sign in on your phone with that account. ive been using it to make prank calls lately because it shows a number from california in the caller id…hehehe but its awesome :)

    • islevegan

      That’s the best way to screw up a good thing. Prank calls from a free, anonymous service; so the people that need it cannot get it. That’s what will happen eventually. A few abusers screws up a good thing for others; it happens on many fronts.

          • PackCat

            I use it internationally in Europe to call US.
            The best part is, that if you call them first, it leaves a CallerID with a US number where they can call you anytime for free anywhere in the world.

  • riskia189

    Is there an app (besides bobsled which sucks and dose not work for me) that you can call someone using wifi with no service on your phone and call another person who is also using wifi that also has no service on their phone? one where you can call users for free without having actual phone service on either phone. No international calls, just local US calls

  • are there any apps that allow you to call anyone, not just other users of the same app, for free over wifi.

    • MagicJack app allows this

      • Rajula

        wonderful – indeed magicjack serve purpose which none of the app listed below does :)

      • Garfield Allen

        Hangouts allow this.
        However, u must also install hangouts dialer.

        The other person doesn’t even need to have a smart phone or a hangouts account. It will allow the caller to call USA phone numbers and canada phone numbers free!… but for other countries, it will cost u a small rate.

        • TJ Mills

          Hangouts also supports Google voice numbers. Are there other apps that support free calling, testing and integrate with the free Google voice service?

    I just installed Skype for the first time (call me old fashioned) to try the call to phone service with a view to dropping our landline – 16 minutes of long distance US and Canada cost about 70 cents. Futzing about “free” at that rate, as compared with the cost of a landline or even worse cell phone rates, doesn’t make much sense.

  • Martin

    Update: new free app to make free calls is Smartgroschen (with excellent voice quality).

    So not truly “calls” since that suggests being able to call any phone line. These are merely client apps
    using VoIP which has been around for many years – long before Skype appeared on the scene!

    “How to call from iPad or Android tablet?”
    Change your tablet into a real phone. How to call from tablet? It’s easy thanks to the Smartgroschen application. All you have to do is download and install our application from the App Store (if you have an iPad) or Google Play (if you have a device with an Android system).

    Your tablet does not need a SIM card in order to be used like a telephone. It’s enough to have access to a Wi-Fi connection and have the Smartgroschen application; you can then call landlines and mobiles around the world. See for yourself how simple it is!

  • Robert Davis

    I am surprised you didn’t mention upptalk the app allows free international calls to any number within the USA or Canada for free (YES TOTALLY FREE!) The receiver does not have to have upptalk installed on their phone either , I can call from home in the UK to Canada free! And unlimited however calls within the UK are no longer free though and they are now charged at 1 credit per minute (0.01p) however there is a workaround by dialing a number within the UK omitting the +44 and 0 in the area code i.e.. instead of +4401179123456 dial 441179123456 now your call within the UK will be free this workaround goes for mobiles aswell as landlines, also of course if both parties have the upptalk app installed voice, And messaging is totally unlimited and free worldwide. Good to know if you’re going on holiday.

    You can make phone calls from your android tablet/ipad (without sim card) using voip app. I use Smartgroshen app, simple, good quality of voice and sync with your phone contacts.

    Magicapp for calling US and Canada phones free no need. for a magic jack account or app on the other side.

    You guys need to try Dingaling! Its like MagicJack, and lets you phone any number (including landlines), but its way better because you can phone free to any number in tons of different countries! (not just Canada/US)
    The voice quality of calls is almost always good, and it uses your number (so your contacts don’t think its some random phoning)

    Great article, i found another one with 17 apps to make free phone calls. This is getting awesome everyday. I remember the day when we use to pay so much to make international calls and now you just ask them to install an app.

    Kik, pinger, and textNow are worth mentioning

    Try wOnefone, wOnefone converts international calls into local ones. Unlike other free calling providers, you don’t need to be connected to WiFi and you don’t use up all your data as wOnefone only uses a tiny amount for the call connection – the rest of your call is totally mobile! wOnefone to wOnefone calls are always free in over 63 countries. Calls to any other international destination are charged at super low rates.​ Available on Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apadmi.wonefone&hl=en
    or iPhone https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/wonefone/id637026077?mt=8

    Looking for a free app that allows you to make free phone calls to anyone without using wifi…but with 2g. Where we live we can only pick up 2g and no one around my husbands work has wifi.

  • Craig

    I’m in Jamaica and want to know which app you can use to get calls from an international correctional facility

  • P S Kumar

    I also came across some of the best calling apps on this new site you can try website http://vizz.co

  • I think we are missing the most important point here:

    The App-to-App + Telephone Network.

    This is a network were people are able not only to communicate for free between users but also directly or indirectly with the telephone network as well. In my opinion, these are the most valuable networks that we can find today.

    Here is a list of the real best free communication apps:

    Great list, but I would add CFC to it as well. You can call even landline via CFC for free!

    RedPhone?

  • blohan

    do I still need to pay for my number if I download these apps?

  • Amogh

    Hi Joe,

    There is 1 app called “CalLiberate” which allows users to make free calls directly to mobile numbers and landlines, i.e no need for call receivers to have app or internet.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.calliberate.app

    Users can call anyone they would otherwise call from their phone’s dialer or contacts list.

  • saeed rehman

    I really need free internationals call from android apps , Therefore here a found perfect way to get free app

  • GSB

    Whatsapp :)

  • Saravanakumar Balasubramanian

    nanu is the app by which you call any number either land line or mobile even if the other person does not have the app.

  • Garfield Allen

    Hangouts was not described properly.
    Hangouts can make free calls to phone numbers but wuld require u to also install hangouts-dialer.

    The other person doesn’t even need to have a smart phone or a hangouts account. It will allow the caller to call USA phone numbers and canada phone numbers free!… but for other countries, it will cost u a small rate.

  • DevilDawg3093

    Are there any that let you use your own number?

  • carolina

    Toky – https://toky.co/
    is a free call voip service that doesn´t need both parties to have the app as it works through web links. You can place and receive calls from any web browser, without having to download or install any particular software

  • Angela

    There is now IMO,just learned of that

  • Dan Orlandi

    With Viber you have to have active cell phone service. Once my cell phone service ended and my cell phone number was no longer available to me I could not used Viber even after I purchased minutes.

  • Paul Cornelia

    After about 2 days of searching for just this type of app. I discovered Dingtone. You watch videos to clock up single credits and download apps which you can later uninstall after you get your credits. Sound quality is good and connection is reliable one you have full data/WiFi connection.

    Another one worth trying is Nanu works with minutes instead of credits but you can get them free works on areas with poorer internet connection by not great but fine when connection is full.

  • Paul Cornelia

    Sorry forgot to mention both these apps will allow you to call any mobile/landline and off calls are totally free if both parties have the app.

  • Very much alike in this page too. But it has almost more than 30 apps with Voice and Video calling feature. http://buddingday.com/30-apps-have-voice-video-call/

    Dingtone allows you to call anyone in the world. You could earn free credits in Dingtone to pay for the call outside US and Canada.

  • Yoyoor

    Anyone tried Dingtone? Free call and text, free phone number also availabel

  • Harjinder singh

    • Mohammed Azharuddin

      Why don’t you install hot spot shield and then install google hangout dialer

  • Johnny Andersson

    I have tested most of them and I prefer Skype. Best quality calls, both voice and video, good text and file exchange. Skype was first and it was invented by a swedish guy and that is why it is still number one in quality.

  • Steve Dosan

    Apart from Google Hangoujts and Skype, you may also have a look at R-HUB desktop video conferencing servers. It works on Android, Windows, iOS, MAC etc.

    VoipDiscount: Need a little advice about how VoipDiscount works. Anyone using it? Interested in how to get free starting LD credits when signing up. Their site is vague about how to do that. I get how to earn credits, just not how to get starting credits. I will be buying a tab/phone and using VoipDiscount’s Android app on the tab/phone when I go to London, UK. I only want to make calls in the UK for taxi’s, etc. I want to receive calls from the US and call back to the US in case of emergencies not to chit chat. I do have a Lifeline mobile phone with 250 free minutes per month but no data plan and no international calling. It does not have a Sim slot either. I hope to use free WiFi in the UK as my phone resource. I do have a Google Voice number.

    All help and advice will be appreciated and may benefit others planning on traveling abroad.

    So none of the free voip apps are actually free voip apps. what a crappy and misleading article. Should say free chat apps with voice

  • Is there an app like magicjack? I need to call a US landline from my cell in costa rica.

  • Lisha

    I use talkatone and i love it and plus it gives you a free number.

  • Jeanna Banks

    Talkatone: FREE Texts & Calls – Android Apps on Google Play

  • Ian

    Do not, under any circumstances download viber, it is a total waste of time, each ‘phone call I make is interrupted by
    constant pipping noises before it is cut off. The quality of the calls is muffled and makes the whole call very frustrating.
    All I want is a good reliable clear call – and free of course!
    What do you think is the very best please?

  • Johnathon Horn

  • chetan chaturvedi

    Does anyone know of any android free calling app for india to europe calls to mobiles or landlines?

  • chetan chaturvedi

    Are there any apps that allows you to call anyone in Europe from India, not just other users of the same app, for free over wifi?

  • Amber

    When you use some of these apps, will the person calling you on it go to your phones actual voicemail?

  • Michael Fuller

    TextNow is also a great free app for texting and calling

  • Artak Avetisyan

    #1 It’s Zangi

  • 1 Life Gamer

    BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) still has 90% of competition beat on quality Voice calls and video calls. Note that this requires any user to create a BBM account and have the app (free of course)
