ooVoo Integrates 3D Characters in Mobile Video Calls

NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  ooVoo is pleased to announce, for the first time ever, full-motion 3D characters in a live mobile video call. By leveraging facial and emotion recognition technology, and ooVoo's concept of Intelligent Video™, users now have the power to video chat as an animated character which mimics their facial expressions in real-time. ooVoo's new characters empower users by allowing them to express emotion in a new fun and exciting way. This results in a feeling of connectedness with one another and the creation of much greater interactive experiences in comparison to those of a typical text and emoji conversation.

Video chat as your favorite character in 1x1 or group video calls.

"Building on our concept of Intelligent Video™ coupled with other technical enhancements, we are the first in video chat to ever provide mobile users with the ability to express themselves and their emotions through the use of full-screen, animated avatars," said Robert Jackman, CEO of ooVoo.

ooVoo's growing number of mostly-millennial users primarily use the service to stay connected and have fun online with friends when they are unable to be together in person. The young audience is a significant contributor to the billions of minutes spent in ooVoo video calls each month. Now, in addition to some of ooVoo's most popular features like 12-way video chat, text and picture messaging, and colorful filters, mobile users will have the opportunity to interact with one another as a number of different fun and expressive 3D characters.

"Our new Character feature empowers users to express their emotions in ways that go beyond a simple and plain emoji conversation," said Rajesh Midha, Chief Product Officer. "Through the use of animated characters, we are taking our first step in allowing content, brands, and other experiences to coexist in ooVoo conversations, resulting in more meaningful and engaging interactions for our users. Keep an eye out for more funny, quirky, and topical characters to come."

ooVoo Characters are now available for download for iPhone 4S and higher, and Android devices with OS 4.0 and higher.
