Search for ooVoo users

You can easily find people on ooVoo and add them to your contact list.


To add a contact:
  1. Click the Add friends link from the main application window or select Find friends from the Contacts menu. The Add friends window appears.
  2. If you know the person, then type his/her display name, ooVoo ID, or email address used when registering in the field. You can include part of the ooVoo ID or display name (such as the first 3 or more characters).
  3. To narrow the search, click Advanced Search to select fields such as their location, language, gender and age group. You can type the city and state in the given fields.
    For the City and State fields, you need to enter the same characters the user entered (so if the user entered 'New York' as 'NY', then you will need to enter 'NY').
  4. Click Search. The list of ooVoo users are displayed.
    If only the first 200 names are displayed, then it's recommended to narrow your search by including more information.
    If no ooVoo users were found, try to make your search less specific by editing the characters entered in the search, city and state fields.
  5. Select a user. The Add and View Profile buttons are enabled at the bottom of the window. Click Add. The user's details appear. Click Add. The user appears in the Pending area of your contact list with a next to his/her name and the user receives a popup notification to add you as a contact. Assuming that you are added to his/her contact list, you will be able to see when s/he is online ( appears next to online contacts).
    If the remains for a long period of time, you can right-click on the contact and select Resend an invitation to communicate to send a new request.
  6. You can add more contacts from the Add friends window, or click Close to close the window.
