New App Features Will Let You Video Chat With Your Dog or Cat & More

There's a new app feature coming out for dog & cat lovers that will let you stay even more connected with your pet when you're away from home. According to Elite Daily, the new feature comes from the makers of pet monitoring app Petcube. It works with a camera that keeps an eye on your pet. When your dog or cat is in front of the camera, it'll take a selfie, which enables the video chat feature and alerts you via the app that your pet is available for a video chat. (You'll have to accept to activate it.)

Petcube will have some other features, too, like a treat-dispensing device & laser that lets you play with your pet while away. The new options are expected to come out sometime this spring.
