Great news for those of you with a Blackberry PlayBook: The Video Chat application enables video and voice over Wi-Fi calling and is said to be available within the next month.
Key features are said to be:
- One-Click Video and Voice over Wi-Fi Calls
- Incoming Call Notifications – you’ll receive a notification pop-up when a new video call comes in, allowing you to accept the call as either a video or voice call, or decline the call. It also allows a “Do not disturb” option.
- Powerful In-Call Functions – by using the picture-in-picture function you can preview your own video image prior to placing the call. You can also switch cameras from front to rear so your friends can see what you are seeing.
- Friends List – BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat comes with a Friends List for maintaining your favorite contacts.
Tom Goguen, VP, Collaboration and Social Networking at Research In Motion (RIM) says: “We are excited to be enabling our customers to share important moments and events with family and friends via video calls. With the BlackBerry PlayBook’s high-resolution video cameras and stunning display, a Video Chat call is the next best thing to being there.”
The new application seems aimed toward to the public, though the majority of BlackBerry users are businesses. So, is Video Chat a major benefit for you/your business?
