TokBox Brings Video and Voice Calling to the meebo Platform

October 31, 2007; 09:12 AM
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- TokBox, a communication service that enables people to talk over live video in a single click, today launched the first voice/video calling product on the meebo Platform. TokBox requires no registration, download, installation or configuration and is now seamlessly integrated into millions of meebo conversations.
TokBox (http://www.tokbox.com) and the three other applications chosen to participate in the meebo Platform demonstrated their new offerings at a meebo event held last night on Pier 38 in San Francisco.
"At meebo, our mission is to connect people live on the Web. The integration of ToxBox into the meebo Platform will help connect millions of people in live, face-to-face voice and video contact every day," said Seth Sternberg, CEO and co-founder, meebo. "TokBox's video calling application inside of meebo brings us one large step closer to becoming the Web's live interaction destination."
According to Nielsen/NetRatings, meebo is the fastest-growing IM destination in the US -- ahead of Google Talk (GOOG) and Skype (EBAY). Similarly to mobile phones and social networks, IM has nearly-ubiquitous adoption: an estimated 500 million people that use it worldwide (Radicati). According to Gartner, 66% of teens and young adults IM more than they e-mail -- and IM will become the focal point of work-based communication by 2013.
"TokBox is making communication much more personal, where we can easily see our family members, friends, co workers or new acquaintances -- no matter where they are," said Serge Faguet, CEO and co-founder of TokBox. "By merging the extreme simplicity of TokBox with the world's most popular live platform, we are providing for the richest form of communication and messaging online today."
