How to use ooVoo video call feature

By Julian Thompson

I would like to introduce and explain a few interesting features of the applications software program known as ooVoo to you. As an applications software program it enables anyone with an internet connection, webcam, and a microphone to communicate with other users worldwide. One problem that some people often have is finding a convenient time and place to meet for a study group. The need to travel and spend time on the phone or e-mail is reduced with ooVoo and in addition video conferencing allows communication from anywhere and anytime. Web conferencing is just one of the many features that ooVoo has.

Here is a common scenario that many college students have encountered. A very difficult group project has been assigned by the instructor for a college course and each group consist of six members. The group members are very far away from each other and may require traveling to meet in person. With ooVoo’s video calling feature you can chat face-to-face with other ooVoo contacts or have a free online video call with contacts who do not have ooVoo. Each member of the group can sign on simultaneously for up to six people making communication much more convenient. Here are the instructions on how to use the video calling feature.

Step 1. Go to www.ooVoo.com and download the ooVoo software.
Step 2. After downloading, open the software by clicking the ooVoo icon on your desktop.
Step 3. Once the ooVoo software is open Click on the web video call tab in ooVoo.
Step 4. Now, to communicate with someone who does have ooVoo simply click their link on the ooVoo browser or send your contact your web video call link through e-mail if the person does not have Oovoo. Having your contact downloading the ooVoo software is not necessary.
Step 5. Once your contact clicks your web video call link the person will see you in their web browser.
Step 6. Create a “Call me Button” . you can put this button on your blog, e-mail signature, or your social networking site. With the “Call Me Button” it is much easier for people who do not have ooVoo to click and call you anytime.

I tried ooVoo for the third time and contacted my father who was in Orlando, Florida for vacation. The software program worked and I held a conversation with him for a few minutes. I saw a video of him and he saw a video of me and we chatted with each other. It is right to communicate with other people in any way possible. The reason I used ooVoo is because it is very convenient and easy to use.
