First introduced in beta a few months ago, Mozilla’s new in-browser VoIP service has finally launched alongside Firefox 35. Known as Hello, this new service can be accessed by clicking the Hello icon in the menu bar or customization panel, all you need to do is select the “Start a conversation” option in order to begin chatting with someone.
You can now make free video and voice calls directly from your Web browser without having to set up an account, thanks to Mozilla. The browser maker on Tuesday introduced Firefox 35, which includes the new Hello video-calling feature first introduced in beta this past October. You’ll see the new Hello icon in the menu bar and in the customization panel; simply click the button labeled “Start a conversation” to begin chatting with someone. When you start a conversation, a new window will open showing a self-view until the other person clicks the link to join you. While you’re waiting for the other person to pick up the call, you can navigate away from the video chat window to a different website, and Hello will notify you when your friend has joined the room.
