When you really want to stay in touch over a long distance, a simple phone call or voice chat pales in comparison to a face-to-face video chat. You can look your long-distance significant other in the eyes while you talk; your parents can watch their grandkid grow up; and under the right circumstances, video chat can also be an excellent tool for work-related calls and collaboration. The question is, what tools should you be using to get the most out of your calls?
Google Chat (Web-based, All platforms)
TokBox (Web-based, Supports all platforms)
iChat (Mac OS X)
Vsee (Windows only)
This week’s honorable mentions go out to Meebo and Digsby, both of which support video chat through the above-mentioned TokBox.
