ooVoo today released a new version of its mobile application for the Android platform that boosts the number of live feeds that can be seen at a time to four. The ooVoo app has always allowed users to conduct group video chats with up to 12 people, but chat windows were limited to one video feed at a time. Now, users can see four, live, high-quality video feeds in a single panel. The same four-way video chat feature has also been added to ooVoo's iPad app. In addition to the improved group video chat, the new application also includes group messaging, push notifications, and integration with the native Android address book. ooVoo messaging and video chats work over 3G, LTE 4G, and Wi-Fi.
