Finally – IBM SmartCloud audio-video enabled

Finally – IBM SmartCloud audio-video enabled:

Over the week-end, we enhanced IBM SmartCloud for Social Business with a brand new capability: audio-video calling. With this latest update, we are now adding one-to-one audio-video calling to instant messaging. How this works is very simple. Let’s imagine that you and I are starting a chat (of course, with a very polite “hi…”). You will now see two new buttons in your chat window: one to start an audio-video call, and one to start an audio-only call. After you click on the video button, I can accept the request, and both of us can see each other in a quality video call.
