Tango, which was the first mobile application that allowed iPhone and Android users to see themselves while on a call, is going for the PC users. As a result, the company will drastically expand its service, allowing for multi-platform video calls, something Skype now offers too. The new PC application will be available later this summer.
In related news, they also announced that “it takes more than 2 to tango.” As a matter of fact, it takes $42 million to be able to compete in today’s market. The company’s Series B round of funding will be used to deliver faster on its product roadmap. Draper Fisher Jurvetson led the investment, which is known as the first investors in Skype, led by noted investors Len Blavatnik and Alex Zubillaga.
Tango has seen explosive growth since its launch on September 30, 2010, adding one million new people to the service every two weeks. Eighteen million people in 190 countries currently use Tango to make free mobile video calls wherever they are.
