Instead of simply logging into an ever-present video chat room that notifies friends like on Houseparty, you deliberately select friends or a group text thread to invite to a video call.
Group video chat starts rolling out worldwide on i OS, Android, and web, today, though Android will have to wait for the MSQRD-powered selfie masks that might not ever come to desktop.
It has now emerged that it was not the first incident involving the video streaming platform to be reported in Britain and parents nationwide are being asked to be vigilant.
Parents were urged to check whether their children had downloaded the app to their phones and ensure it was deleted.
The service enables users to video chat with up to five other oo Voo users — a user base that is said to be upward of 20 million — on Android, PC or Mac.
The application also includes free user-to-user voice calls, text chat, contact list integration and video calls to non-oo Voo users.
