If you’re still searching for the right video conferencing service to interact with your business partners, your customers, and your suppliers, Podio [1] has added a new Podio video conference feature you may want to consider.

Audio and video service was launched this week for Podio at no extra cost for users of the collaboration software whether you have a free or premium account. Anders Pollas, co-founder and product manager at Podio, introduced the new service recently on the official Podio blog.

There are at least 200,000 Podio clients already using the business collaboration platform. With the new video chat app, users will be able to interact with each other using video and audio. But that’s not all.

The workplace management and social site also recently added instant text messaging to go alongside its suite of other business apps already geared for group input and interaction.

Use Podio Video Chat to Increase Collaboration

Using Podio, you can see which projects other members of your team are working on. You can then use the new video chat app to start a quick one-on-one or group video conversation with them.

All chats are stored in the archive so they’re accessible at a later time. The new video chat feature will also allow users to share files through cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and Microsoft SkyDrive.

The video chat service from Podio does require a one-time browser plugin download. It’s currently available for PC and Mac browsers and will soon be available in iOS for iPhone and iPad, according to Citrix, which owns Podio.
