Israeli-based video chat service ooVoo becomes perhaps the most attractive solution for companies wishing to conduct group video conferences and not to pay money for it. As you know, Skype has made its group video service paid. Then came Google Hangouts, which offers free video calls for up to 10 participants. But it only works in the browser (in Google+) and on Android devices. But the new version of ooVoo offers free video chat for up to 12 participants. And it works on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android (smartphones and tablets) and via the web-interface in browser. New ooVoo's iPad app supports 4-way video in HD format. In addition, ooVoo has released an application for Facebook, so that users of this social network could even not care about the registration and software installation.
