thanks for the reply
yeah hangouts can be used for video call, but i saw many android phones have the video call option directly on a name in the contacts.
so i was wondering if i could have that shortcut on the dialer of moto g too...

still uses data. and you can say it isn't charge to your data cuz you are paying 50p/min. again it uses data. for specific questions about your plan this isn't the place. talk to your provider.

I beleive u have no clue about 3g video calling...it does use data but you can video call a person who doesnt have hangout/skype or any other software for video calling....its a common feature in most of the phones.

There isn't support for it in stock android.Only if the manufacturer decideds to put its own in the dailer/contacts apps (samsung for example has it ot many phones of theirs).
Also I didn't see any port of that feature at all, but since I don't care for expensive operator-hosted video calling, I might missed it up if it was ever ported.

you are not alone. i spent times to explain to them who surprisingly an android, ios developer about this native video calling and they insist its 3g data used. after i said that, my mother can receive my video call without any plan or credits whatsoever in her phone, they all surprised

at this time only samsung and some local brands are having this. sony-ericksson already started this feature back in 2004/2005, and samsung keep using this feature on their windows phone 5.x/6.x (not with current win phone 7/8) , also to all samsung android devices.

you will never has this feature activated on google nexus since android doesnt support this feature on the os.

i assume, your phone is samsung. coz, lg , acer and lenovo hasnt as well as nexus.
