LogMeIn has launched a major update to its Android app for its join.me online meeting and collaboration tool. The new app gives Android users the ability to share documents, apps, web pages, maps or virtually anything on their smartphone or tablet with colleagues, prospects, customers, partners or friends across the table or across the world, for free. It works as part of the overall join.me service, so attendees can join the screen sharing session from any PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device.
“How we meet today, the way we share ideas and get stuff done, is increasingly a series of quick, iterations and interactions” said Craig Daniel, VP of product at join.me. “We wanted the join.me experience to be able to empower people to work in that way. The new Android app opens up frictionless ways to share ideas on the fly, whether you simply want a quick way to get an extra set of eyes on something or host a fully-fledged mobile meeting.”
In addition to free, real-time screen sharing, the updated app also offers join.me Pro customers who want to host and present from their Android smartphone or tablet the ability to start a meeting using a unique personal link; to pass, request or reclaim presenter control; to record meetings; and to start a conference call from an Android phone with one tap that automatically dials the conference call number and access code.
The new join.me for Android app is available for free on devices running version 5.0 and above operating systems (Lollipop and Marshmallow) and works with both join.me’s free version, as well as the premium version, join.me Pro.
