ooVoo is basically a chatting system but because it includes powerful features, it manages to keep up with its competitors, despite competing in a tough market. The main feature that the application provides is the possibility to participate in video calls in order to keep in touch with friends or be part of a conference that might be initiated by an employer. The video calls provide high audio and video quality and users will greatly enjoy this feature, that is offered for free. Moreover, up to six people can participate in the conference at the same time.
The app has been designed not only for computers, but also for mobile phones, so more users can use it. Video quality can be rendered at 720p or even 1080p if the hardware is capable of providing such resolutions. Video calls can also be recorded and stored in the chosen folder with a timestamp and the same recordings can be attached to emails, if their file size is small enough. Documents can be shared with ease if the screen is shared and using the program, the leader of a conference can do this by himself or he can allow other participants to do this process.
ooVoo also features a friends list and they can be added on it even if they are using a different messaging application – video calls can also be started if they use other chatting tools. Privacy measures are important and the app features several options regarding this matter in order to allow users to appear online to certain people or to connect anonymously. The aspect of the tool is not neglected, either, thus the users will be greeted by a black and orange interface, but if this is too dark for them, they can switch to brighter color schemes.
