ooVoo Provides HD Video Chats for BlackBerry

BlackBerry users now have a new way to video chat, with a new solution from ooVoo for the BlackBerry 10 platform. The service is brought to us by ooVoo and Research In Motion (RIM), and provides high-definition video chats and instant messaging for free.

ooVoo’s service can integrate with BlackBerry 10’s browser, providing a solution that can video and text chat across platforms. It’s integrated into the BlackBerry’s basic functionality, so it’s easy to start video calls directly from the device.

The solution is useful for both business calls and just everyday communication, being affordable for all and with high-definition video. Up to 12 contacts can connect at once, and with its Watch Together feature, users can view videos together within the calls.

"As a leader in communications, we understand the importance of bringing people together in an innovative way that is easy to use," said Martyn Mallick, RIM’s VP of Global Alliances and Business Development. "ooVoo will be a fantastic choice for BlackBerry 10 customers looking for a multi-user video communications service that can connect them to their contacts on virtually any computer or mobile device, and we are pleased to work with ooVoo to help bring their service to our customers."

Video chats are great for staying in touch and communicating with friends and colleagues alike, and the BlackBerry is a device that can work wonders with ooVoo’s solution. The only costs might come from wireless data charges, depending on one’s carrier and plan, so it’s an entirely affordable solution, and one worth giving a look.

More information about BlackBerry 10 is available at ITEXPO Miami, happening now until February 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
