Raketu Releases Free Computer-to-Computer VideoCalling, VoIP and Integrated Chat for Mac, Windows and Linux

New Raketu VideoCalling Supports Video, Voice and Chat on Mac, Windows and Linux Allowing Users to Make Free Computer-to-Computer VideoCalls, VoiceCalls and Instant Messaging (November 04, 2008)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/04/08 -- Raketu, a leading global Internet communications, information, entertainment, and social networking company, today released its cross platform VideoCalling. The new service allows anyone with a Mac, Windows or Linux computer to make free two-way video calls, one-way video calls, two-way voice calls and instant message, all from any browser without a download. The new service is also integrated with Raketu's new version 3.0 download client. Users will now be able to make free videocalls, voicecalls and instant message with their friends, family and business colleagues across any platform. The new VideoCalling is in addition to the existing communications, information, entertainment and social networking features where users can make international calls computer-to-computer, computer-to-phone and phone-to-phone, send sms-text messages, instant message, and email totally free or at Raketu's ultra-low rates -- all from any device, anywhere in the world, mobile or desktop/laptop.

"Raketu's VideoCalling release will allow all our users to make video and voice calls between computers no matter what operating system they are running," said Greg Parker, president and CEO of Raketu. "If you are running a Mac with a webcam and your friend is on Windows with only a headset, you can make one-way video calls to one another. If both have webcams, you can make two-way video calls. If neither have webcams, you can still make two-way VoIP calls to one another. Our new VideoCalling in combination with our existing services makes the cost of making and receiving video/phone calls affordable no matter where our users are."
