Editors' Review

What if Digsby and Skype merged into one seemingly all-powerful VoIP and messaging communications tool is the question that VoxOx seeks to answer. VoxOx's many features have not yet been seen in one package, and version 2 of the program introduces even more features. Whether their execution suits your needs may be another matter.

VoxOx 2 offers all that came before, and more. It's got multiprotocol chat, social networking support, and Web mail integration. It also offers a telephony service that includes call encryption, mobile-to-mobile calls initiated by either SMS or via a Web site. New in this version are a free personal assistant for recording, forwarding, routing, and screening calls, inbound and outbound fax management, Facebook and MySpace IM support, a reworked contact manager that attempts to merge your contacts from their disparate sources, and stronger back-end support. Users have been promised that new servers can handle the workload asked of them.

You can share files up to 100MB via an internally-generated download link that can then be shared via e-mail or instant message. This is different from the direct support of most IM clients, but that file size bump is hard to ignore. There's mobile access, too, for those who use a mobile browser, iPhone, or WAP. The call quality on the Callback feature, where you initiate a long-distance or international phone call from your computer or SMS, was clear and crisp.

The Personal Assistant is the big new feature in this version, and for users who need to manage multiple phone numbers, it's a killer. You can redirect calls based on which number you want to be reached at first, and by who's calling you. You can record calls as they occur, or listen to messages as they're being recorded. You can also transfer a live call from a landline to a mobile number and not lose the call.

The interface has received an overhaul, and in general it's better. One drawback is that while many options are available from the Settings menu, not all of them are. Some you need to go to different parts of the program, such as altering IM fonts. Using VoxOx's phone features requires points, and users are given 120 points/minutes to get started. With an overwhelming feature set, VoxOx continues an uphill climb against better-known competitors or those who focus on a single feature, but it's hard to ignore the appeal of what's offered.

"Works better than Google voice"

June 20, 2011  |  By zwj1021

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.5.3

Pros

completely free, no ads etc. It download on the desktop so I don't have to open a browser to make a call every time (Google voice only works in a browser), good call quality.

Cons

My firewall blocked it at first, but just make sure the ports are unblocked then everything worked fine

Summary

Good software, no need to pay my phone bill anymore, very awesome!

"let's me FB chat at work"

April 13, 2011  |  By LBerkman

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.5.3

Pros

I use it to talk to my facebook friends since I can't use FB or aim OR my phone at work.

Cons

The old version was a little touchy and seemed to 'forget' things sometimes... I just got the latest version and it already seems to work better

"Good back-up for cell phone (when you break it)"

March 26, 2011  |  By Coachella7

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.5.0

Pros

I dropped my cell phone and it broke, luckily I had added all my important numbers to VoxOx. PHEW!

Cons

I wish it had a way to import numbers from a cell rather than manual input. This is pretty annoying so I sent them a suggestion about this. Hope it makes it in!

Summary

Maybe it's infatuation, but since this episode with no cell? I kinda love VoxOx.

"Reduces Clutter"

March 14, 2011  |  By LA808

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.5.0

Pros

One window instead of 8 tabs/apps open on my desktop, saves space for other things like work!

Cons

I had to update the software on my Mac in order to get VoxOx to work properly. Guess it's not for "classic" Mac OSes like mine.

Summary

Keeps my desktop organized, easier to hide than several web windows. Pretty handy.

"Love the translation features"

October 13, 2010  |  By avrilcaballo

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

I don't speak a lot of Spanish but have family that only speak Spanish. I really like the translation feature in Voxox (the globe in the chat window). I can type i nEnglish and my cousins type in Spanish. Voxox translates right away.

Cons

Not loving the colors, but I hear a new version is coming out so we'll see.

Summary

Translation is very cool, keeps me using Voxox.

"When will it work on my MAC?"

September 28, 2010  |  By TonioLarabi

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

Pros

I love all of the features, design and concept. It looks very nice and I am very excited about trying it.

Cons

I have downloaded, uninstalled, downloaded, uninstalled and it continues to crash upon start up on my brand new MacBook Pro!

Summary

When they get it to work on the MAC I will write another review!

Updated on Oct 11, 2011

Hey Bryan:

Thanks for the advise. I actually have been following every update you guys release. In fact, I think I have had a minor credit on my account, for a very long time.

I do LOVE the Facsimile feature, because I travel all over the world and this is so easy! Cheap Too!

Thanks!

"useless application"

March 04, 2010  |  By subhron

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.6.2163

Pros

None at all

Cons

What it the use of this application if it crashes at the start up itself. I tried at least 20 times to install.. It does not work. Why bring out a beta version when elementary things like crash at the start are not taken care of. Useless application

It looks promising and I will keep trying.
