  • Recommendation
    • Although they are both video-conferencing and messaging software, they are different. I’ve personally used Skype and experienced drop calls and video freezing. I also experienced a security risk of my computer being hacked into.
    • I’ve had friends us Oovoo and they didn’t have any complaints. Both have pros and cons and it really depends on how your are going to use it.
    • I would recommend Oovoo just from my experience I’ve had with Skype.
