ooVoo Review

Tina de Pierre
Live video conferences with support for up to 12 people
A review of ooVoo by Tina de Pierre

Many users across the world have decided to ditch their typical instant messaging applications in favour of something a little bit more advanced; that application is called ooVoo.

This application allows users to comfortably and easily create video conferences with up to 12 different people simultaneously. The bypasses other popular applications based on peer-to-peer technology like Skype which offers less features and can connect with fewer people at the same time.

In order to get started with ooVoo, you're first required to download and install their application. After you've done that, you should create a free account on ooVoo's web site and from there add your contacts to populate your contact list.

The program isn't all about video chat either, with ooVoo, you can execute text chat, voice calls and send SMS text messages to mobile phone numbers across the planet.

Though all of the services which ooVoo offers are not free, you're able to have a three-way video conversation completely free of charge. With regards to Skype, the prices of voice calls and SMS text messages are about the same. Quality-wise, this video and voice application supports high-quality conferencing yet it currently lacks support for high-definition calls.

One last feature worth mentioning is the remote desktop-type feature which allows users to share screens, giving call parties a view of your current Windows desktop.

ooVoo can text chat, join chat rooms, video conference and send SMS messages.

ooVoo features and highlights:
  • Group video calls with up to 12 people
  • Record and send video messages
  • Record and upload calls to YouTube
  • Send instant messages to your contacts on ooVoo
  • Set up a web chat room for free
