ooVoo is an instant messaging service that you can use to chat with people at home or at work. It achieves face-to-face conversations from a comfortable and user-friendly environment.

Upon installation, ooVoo offers to change the homepage and default search engine of your web browser, as well as install the ooVoo toolbar. You can pass this offer, if you don’t want your computer settings to be modified.

Its user interface is a little more professional-looking that you have already gotten yourself used to, so that's definitely an added bonus.

At first launch, you are prompted to create an account. Then you will be greeted by the Welcome Center, a window where you can check the audio and video settings, invite friends to ooVoo, or video call friends who are not on ooVoo.

ooVoo borrows many features from other instant messaging tools, but it also offers some new ones. For instance, right next to the status message is the Facebook icon, allowing you to instantly connect to your Facebook account.

There's also a telephone option, but it doesn't work for all countries displayed in ooVoo, and you have to buy credits in order to place a call.

Video chatting with friends who don't use ooVoo is also possible (up to five people at a time), as they simply need to click the Answer button once they have received your invitation link.

The image and sound quality during a video call is excellent, and ooVoo easily surpasses other similar products.

‘My ooVoo Card’ is an option found in the menu where you can edit your account and personal details, phone numbers, and interests.

Overall, ooVoo turns out to be an excellent instant messaging platform that offers superb video chatting services, and we strongly recommend you give it a try.

ooVoo is an instant messenger application designed to help you have face-to-face video calls with all your friends. It's the closest thing to being there with your family, friends and people you meet with. All you need is a computer with a headset (or microphone and speakers) connected to the Internet.

If you don't have a webcam, you can still see the other participants in the video call. The video and audio is of superb quality and only requires a standard broadband Internet connection (such as DSL or cable).

You can also use advanced features such as sharing your desktop, not seeing advertisements, calling landline and cell phones from ooVoo (see the different ooVoo plans and credit options).
