My Meeting Video update turns web browsers into powerful videoconferencing systems with plugin-free, point-to-point calling
May 2, 2018, Oslo – Today Videxio announced that its cloud videoconferencing app My Meeting Video now lets you call others directly through web browsers. The way we work is changing, and this new feature makes it easy to place and receive video calls from anywhere – all without downloading a plugin.
“This is a game-changer for the industry. No one else offers direct person-to-person video calling using a web-browser with such a simple workflow and interface. Users will love how easy it is to connect with video to literally anyone with a browser without requiring an app download,” said David Maldow, founder and CEO of Let’s Do Video. “Companies today must evolve to give employees the flexibility they demand and provide the tools to keep them connected to their teams, whether working remotely or in today’s modern huddle spaces. Videxio is well-positioned to help companies meet these changing needs, and its My Meeting Video app is a perfect example of one way it is doing so.”
An easy way to talk on the fly
Not all meetings are scheduled, and direct calls enable ad hoc, unplanned conversations. Just type your contact’s video address in the search bar and hit enter or tap their name in your directory to start talking. By replacing lengthy email exchanges with a quick call, users can save time, make faster decisions, and build stronger relationships with colleagues and clients. Now, direct calling is available to the masses – not just those with dedicated videoconferencing systems.
Similar to a smartphone, My Meeting Video displays recent calls including outbound, inbound, and missed. When a call comes through and the app is running in a window, a notification will appear, allowing users to accept or decline the video call. Users can even create their own “starred” list of contacts within or outside their company for fast, easy dialing.
“Our customers today are no longer tied to the office and need their communication tools to work where they do,” said Tom-Erik Lia, CEO and cofounder of Videxio. “Whether using a laptop, mobile device, or traditional videoconferencing system, users need a simple way to talk to others. Videxio makes it easy. My Meeting Video is changing the way we communicate to make face-to-face meetings even more accessible, regardless of where you work.”
A seamless experience across devices
The latest update also gives the desktop client a new modern, interface and even more call controls. Users can add others to a call, view the participant list, mute and disconnect others all within the app. They can also join via audio-only when calling in with a weak internet connection, or to save data traffic. Now, it’s easier to switch between devices whether meeting from a laptop, phone, or tablet within a familiar interface.
My Meeting Video is available for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. Learn more about the app here.
