Join.Me Mobile App Update Allows Android Users Free Screen Sharing
If you must attend an online meeting but your schedule doesn’t permit you to remain confined to your office just so you can participate, you’ll want to take advantage of software that lets you use your mobile device to stay connected while on the go.
Users of LogMeIn’s join.me for online meetings will be glad to hear that the app has just been updated. It now allows Android users, with Android 5.0 or higher, the ability to share the screen of an Android smartphone or tablet with participants, free of charge. Showing meeting attendees whatever you have on your device’s display will make it easier to collaborate with your colleagues.
Since you can jump into a meeting while you’re on the road with join.me, it would be a good idea to bring a small table stand so you can better position your tablet or phone while working at a cafe or out of your hotel room.
Sharing the Screen is Easy
People use the join.me app for its simplicity and convenience. You can host a scheduled or impromptu meeting with just one tap, as well as arrange for a quick conference call.
When you need to share something on your device’s screen, you tap the app’s orange button. As you open up documents, such as contracts, spreadsheets or production designs, each participant will see exactly what you see on your Android phone or tablet.
Need to point out something on a website? Launch the page in your browser and everyone can see exactly what you’re talking about, instead of having them wait to visit the site themselves.
Features of the join.me app include:
- Speak with meeting attendees with VoIP
- Chat with one individual or with everyone all at once
- Security feature lets you lock and unlock meetings
- Zoom in on the screen you’re sharing
- Make unlimited conference calls free of charge
If you’re already a user of LogMeIn’s free join.me app, you’ll want to upgrade to the new version as soon as possible so you can start sharing your screen by the time of your next meeting. If you’ve never used join.me before, now is a good time to check out this app to host and participate in online meetings.
