Yahoo acquired video chat startup OnTheAir on Tuesday in a move that may be more about deepening its mobile talent pool than adding a new service to its lineup. OnTheAir is a video broadcasting app that allows users to chat on a split screen or broadcast live video streams. The app was created as a webinar platform for professionals. It allows the host to incorporate audience questions via the split screen for a live, visual interview. The service is similar to the Google Hangouts feature on Google+.
