We’ve discussed Google Hangout as a way to connect with family, friends and business associates on the Internet.   Google Hangout is a video conferencing that allows you to invite multiple participants where everyone can interact at the same time.

However, there are other programs offering video communicating and conferencing on the Internet.   One you’re probably familiar with . . . Skype. But one you may not have heard of is  Vsee. Vsee is a platform targeting the medical field, however, it can be used for personal and other businesses. We’re going to take a quick look at both.
