OoVoo continues to evolve

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, June 11, 2013

OoVoo continues to evolve.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It has plenty of competition …from Microsoft’s Skype and others….but the video calling app called OoVoo is attracting millions of users.   And new versions of the company’s apps are slated to arrive this summer.   What’s behind the growth?   OoVoo President Jay Samit…

Millennials use their mobile devices different than prior generations.  It’s not primarily for audio speaking.  Matter of fact, they’d rather text than make a phone call.  But for those that they’re most intimate with, their dearest friends, they want to see each other.   And so there’s a whole new usage of the marriage of both video and communication OoVoo enables.”

The apps are free.  OoVoo has an advertising supported business model.   It can be used on iOS and Android devices as well as on PCs and Macs…and through Facebook.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
