The folks over at VIZIO have been busy. Just last week, the VIZIO Tablet received a major firmware upgrade giving it improved graphics performance and battery life, along with a host of other upgrades. Now the company has announced that the VIZIO 8" Tablet with Wi-Fi supports ooVoo, allowing VIZIO Tablet owners to video chat – for free - with up to six callers at once.

All you'll need is your VIZIO Tablet, a Wi-Fi connection, and the ooVoo app (available for free in the Android Market), then you'll be able to party chat to your hearts' content. ooVoo is available across multiple hardware platforms, from mobile devices to PCs, and in addition to free video and voice calls, ooVoo also supports calls through a web browser and can be upgraded to enable calls to landlines as well. 

"Just as consumers are shifting away from linear TV programming towards more video on demand, video calls are also evolving from by-appointment usages to a live, spontaneous social experience," said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Technology Officer.
