Logitech is attempting to take on the videoconferencing market, by launching a new conferencing system aimed at mid-to-large size groups and meeting rooms. The Logitech Group follows on from the CC3000e in the ConferenceCam range, offering the ability to hold a conference call with a group of up to 14 people locally, though this can be extended to a total of 20 people by the use of an optional expansion microphone.
Google has updated its iPhone app for its social network Google+, adding support for "Hangouts," ie multi-user videoconferencing, reports MacStories. Up to nine people can join a Hangout, using the front-facing iPhone or iPad camera by default (though the rear camera is also supported). Other changes include the renaming of "Huddle" to "Messenger," and which now supports photo attachments.
