Cisco ūmi on The Oprah Winfrey Show!

“Joining us on Cisco ūmi, a new way to video call from home” was Oprah’s opening line before The Oprah Winfrey Show went live with Cisco ūmi yesterday, November 3rd.

Oprah recently went on a camping trip with her best friend Gayle, and used Cisco ūmi to re-connect with the friends she met at her recent camping adventure to Yosemite National Park.

Oprah and Gayle were able to talk each of the two families which included 8 family members each on their couch in the comfort of their own home using Cisco ūmi telepresence.

Oprah also references Cisco ūmi on Gift Finder “Small Gadgets: A few little gadgets we think are just great.” We hope your stocking is big enough to fit Cisco ūmi this year to someone you wish you saw more often!
