Between iOS, we use Facetime.

Q1:
Between Androids of different versions (Samsung Galaxy S3 &
latest Note 2 Android), is there any freeware to do facetime
(ie video + audio comms) via WiFi ?

Q2:
Between Android & iOS 6/7, is there any app that could do
video & audio comms via WiFi?

Google Hangouts has video and audio capability via WiFi. It's pretty neat.

Hi sunhux,

FaceTime on the iOS is an excellent feature, you don’t need to worry if you’re an Android user as there are several alternatives available that can perform the exact same function.

Skype - But in both device you need account and skype installed.

Tango
Here are many options but i will suggest to use skype because of its voice quality, performance, screen sharing capability, and many more features.

There may  be many more options, Pick the best you prefer. Most of all works on both Mobile Network and WI-fi Network.

Thanks & Regards,
Krunal T. Tailor

So if an iPhone user wants to communicate (via almost realtime video & audio) with an
Android user,
both Google Hangouts (if the instructions to install it is complicated, would be
nice to provide the steps to install it) & Skype could support it?  Ie both of these
tools run on both iOS & Android?

Google Hangouts should be easy to install. Skype is also easy, but it is quite draining on phone resources. But both work on either iOS or Android.
