Is BBO video chat being used?

There was a brief flurry of posts when BBO video chat was introduced but it has all gone silent now. Is this because everyone likes it, hates it, or is not using it?

I'm just deciding whether to promote it for the club's summer season of bridge, which is typically less competitive and friendlier than the winter season. As a club we are not bothered about the financial implications, since our TDs are free and the club is more interested in providing a better environment for the members than profit.

As I've seen no announcements, I presume that we are also still waiting for iPad support, which will improve the experience for a good number of the members. Can BBO provide a tentative schedule?

Comments welcome.

Cheers

Video Chat works on mobile web, with some limitations: only on Chrome for Android and only on Safari for Apple devices.

Thanks Diana.

I suspect this was sent to my NBO, who doesn't seem to believe in passing BBO information to its virtual clubs.

We sent to the virtual clubs as well, but you're not associated with a "virtual club" in the sense of a business agreement to run an online commercial venture, so you probably did not receive it. But all vEBUxxx, cbaixxxx should have gotten it.

My virtual club is an SBU entity, not sure how they handle things.

My club's committee will be discussing this on Monday and I expect we'll start using video chat next month. We won't want to introduce it as the (winter) season's competitions come to a climax.

Free tourneys have neither voice nor video. Use zoom!
