Robin Good's curator insight, July 28, 2013 4:39 PM



Podio offers modular collaborative workspaces that can be customized to your specific needs by adding adn integrating your preferred collaboration apps, available in its dedicated app library.


The latest app addition is a free video and audio app which allows you to videoconference in real-time with any other Podio user (1-to-1).


From SmallBizTrends: "If you’re still searching for the right video conferencing service to interact with your business partners, your customers, and your suppliers, Podio has added a new Podio video conference feature you may want to consider.


Audio and video service was launched this week for Podio at no extra cost for users of the collaboration software whether you have a free or premium account. Anders Pollas, co-founder and product manager at Podio, introduced the new service recently on the official Podio blog.


There are at least 200,000 Podio clients already using the business collaboration platform. With the new video chat app, users will be able to interact with each other using video and audio. But that’s not all.


The workplace management and social site also recently added instant text messaging to go alongside its suite of other business apps already geared for group input and interaction."

Podio video conferencing features are available to everyone whether you have a free or Pro version of Podio. For now video-conferences support a maximum of two parties only.



Podio is free for up to 5 users.
