ooVoo has released verion 1.7 of their video chat program for Mac. I may be a bit "ahead of the system" here, because I haven't seen a press announcement of it yet, but the download is available on their Downloads page. They have been due for a Mac update to catch up with some of the nice new features in their (excellent) Windows version, and it looks like this is a step in that direction:
- High resolution video (640x480)
- Web call support for video calls to non-ooVoo users
- Video recording
- Video effects (apparently developed by ooVoo, not a licensed package)
- Improved find/add friends, covering other IM programs and social networks
- Advertising banners added - as I said before they have to pay the bills somehow
This release is still identified as a Beta, which I assume means that there is even more good stuff to come. I continue to be impressed with the quality of the work that ooVoo produces, both in development AND support.
