Facebook gets group video chat from ooVoo

Facebook will have a group video chat, PCWorld announced on Friday. The new feature is provided within an app by ooVoo video chatting service. Actually, Facebook users have been able to make video calls for a few months now, but it was only possible to call one person at a time. Well, now you can talk to 11 friends at the same time!


ooVoo is a video chat with more than 46 million users. Recently they enabled an option to ‘Sign in with Facebook’ which made it easier to start using the service – no registration, creating account, confirmation, and so on.  Besides, ooVoo lets you invite people to a call even if they don’t have an account just by sending a link to the call.

Skype, the most popular internet calling service, also offers video conversations, but for free you can only talk to one person at a time, and corporate video calls are paid. Google+ in this sense has a better option: its feature called Google Hangouts allows you to video-talk to multiple friends for free.

I have a question for dedicated Skype users like myself:  would you switch to ooVoo or Google Hangouts just for the benefit of talking to a few friends at a time?
