- Setup was simple and if you have a Mac with an embedded camera, it’s even simpler!
- Having it embedded in my Gmail client makes a world of difference. I’m much more likely to use the tool given the fact that I use Gmail all the time. Plus, it’s my primary contact management tool.
- Quality is good. Compared to Skype and Yahoo IM, I think its better.
A video conference is a much more robust form of communication comparied to instant messaging or email. It makes a world of difference when it comes to managing remote teams or just trying to connect with family. This afternoon I walked my not-so-computer-savy dad through the setup and we had a cross-continental video conference with my family in Connecticut. My 2 year old daughter enjoyed it alot, especially when my dad raised our dog Patton up to the camera.
