VoIP Startup, TringMe Working On Video Communication

Posted Nov 28, 2007

VoIP startup, TringMe has a click-to-call widget. The widget allows website visitors and friends to call each other anonymously. Other companies that offer similar widgets are Jajah, Jangl, Jaxtr, and GrandCentral. TringMe connects Flash widgets to mobile phones, GTalk, and landlines. A microphone is required though.

Phone numbers are kept private on TringMe. TringMe widgets can be set to receive only voicemails. The voicemails are emailed to the user, saved in a TringMe mailbox, and can be played back on GTalk. Calls can only be made from a computer.

TringMe also has a Facebook application. Facebook users can call other users via the TringMe application. TringMe can also be added on MySpace (sample at: http://www.myspace.com/tringme).  TringMe also works on any social network supported by Google OpenSocial.

The founder of TringMe is Yusuf Motiwala.  TringMe is working on a new service called TringBox.  Although the full details on TringBox is not released, I do know that it will be related to video communication.
