ooVoo Video Chat: Social Video Goes Mainstream
Ever since the emergence of video chat, the digital landscape has been quickly reshaping itself to accommodate the next generation of online social interaction. Now over 250 million smartphones, 750 million laptops, and 30 million tablets are equipped with built-in/integrated video cameras and broadband connectivity. Video communication has officially entered the mainstream.
ooVoo has been an industry leader in free multi-point video chat and a pioneer in social video chat. In fact, 70% of ooVoo users tell us the service improves their social life and our users are watching TV, listening to music and spending entire weekends together on ooVoo. Everyday our users are the ones who continue to pioneer and enhance the online social experience -- one video chat window at a time.
It’s an exciting time for the social video chat. With the recent announcement of Facebook’s Skype integration and the launch of Google+, video chatting is more prolific than ever.
First, our quality. ooVoo is crystal clear, HD-quality, cross-platform video chat, whether it’s a one-to-one call or a party of six. (If social video is the new front porch, what good is it if you can’t actually see the people walking by.)
Secondly, our segment, the majority of which are under 25, does not want their video interaction limited to their friends in only one of their social networks. In fact, more than 50% of our users meet new people on ooVoo. What they want is a truly independent video chat experience across every platform and the ability to connect to anyone regardless of network affiliation.
These new entrants validate ooVoo's strategy in the social video space and ooVoo has some exciting new products we're launching in July and later this summer which extend that strategy. We look forward to sharing more with you in the coming weeks.
