Get Yer Free Calls While They Last

Get Yer Free Calls While They Last
Mark Hendrickson

Everyone loves a free lunch, so just about everyone should love ooVoo, at least until the end of the month.

The video conferencing company has just launched its new VoIP to landline/mobile phone service and is kicking things off with a month of free calls to the United States and Canada. That’s right, free calls from your computer to anyone’s phone and with no advertisements to ruin the party.

The best part: the company isn’t collecting credit card numbers so you don’t have to worry about canceling an account by March 1st. The worst part: no support for Macs. And the most worrisome part, its disclaimer:

ooVoo reserves the right to change the offer at any time with no notice.

Let’s hope the service’s popularity won’t force it to cut things short.

While we haven’t covered ooVoo before, the Israeli company offers an impressive range of videoconferencing capabilities including six-person video sessions, video stream recording, and in-call video effects.
