Do You ooVoo?


I know you’re probably thinking, “What’s an ooVoo?” I know I did when I first heard about it. Now, I’m digging it.

ooVoo is free video conferencing and video chat program that allows you to connect with 3 people at once for FREE. It’s really cool and very easy to use.  It’s one step up from the free version of Skype. You can actually chat with up to 6 people but you have to pay for the remaining three.

I had the opportunity to use it to call my friend in Connecticut with another friend here.  I loved it. There were very few disconnects, the images were clear and the sound was pretty good.  The disconnects we did have was based on the strength of individual internet connections.

To be successful on an ooVoo call or any other video call, you have to have the following:

  1. good internet connect
  2. webcam
  3. microphone – this could be internal or external
  4. speaker

I am a fan of Skype and ooVoo. Both are recommended for quality video calls and video chat. You can actually change your ring tone and make other customizations on both. I haven’t done it yet because I’m still in awe of the concept of video calling. Even if you are a Skype user, I would encourage you to ooVoo.  Find a couple friends to give it a try today. If you like it, come back and share your experience.

For those of you who have used ooVoo, how do you view ooVoo?
