Millions of expatriates residing in UAE and most of them living without their family.They feel difficult to make free video calls to their family. Because UAE  government banned the calling facility of the popular communication apps such as Skype, imo, FB messenger, WhatsApp etc. .

Usage of VPN also banned in UAE, the authorities will be levied heavy fine once they noticed the usage.
