Toxbox has a very straightforward interface. If some is available to chat all you have to do is push the “Push to Talk” button and you connect, and if the person isn’t available you can leave them video mail or voicemail.
Also, Tokbox allows you to pull the video chat out of the browser and go to other websites or applications without disrupting the conversation. To do this you need to enable browser pop-ups.
