All you need is a computer with a standard broadband Internet connection and audio and video capabilities. While video chatting is free, more advanced options like conference calling, desktop sharing and advertisement-free viewing are available with a paid subscription. You can request friends who are already on ooVoo, friends who don't yet have ooVoo or new friends who share similar interests.
