Citrix Improves Personalization for GoToMeeting

Citrix responds to user demands with new productivity app integrations and personalization features for GoToMeeting.

Citrix launched an updated version of GoToMeeting, adding new productivity app integrations and personalization features that work the same across multiple devices.

Citrix announced the enhancements April 7, saying they will make it easier for users to hold a high-definition GoToMeeting and collaborate in real-time.

Enhancements made to the PC, Mac, mobile and browser versions of GoToMeeting include:

--Control panel: a customizable layout that enables PC users to move the control panel, or hide it completely, simplifying the way attendees and organizers collaborate in real time.

--Handoff: This allows Mac users to move from one device to the next without losing productivity; users can easily move from a meeting on an iPad/iPhone to a Mac desktop without having to reconnect. This enables Mac and PC users to create and share their own meeting destination URLs, further personalizing the meeting experience with custom meeting rooms.

--GoToMeeting for Google Calendar and Outlook: Google and Outlook users can schedule meetings directly from a calendar invitation without having to open the application.

--Android Mobile App: Android users can join or leave a meeting with one click on their smartwatch, without having to use a mobile device.

--One-Touch Dialer and Quick Join: As an alternative to Internet audio in low-bandwidth areas, One-Touch Dialer for iPhone and Android allows users to join a GoToMeeting session in one click. Quick Join displays upcoming meetings on the app screen, allowing users to join with the touch of a button.

--iOS support: GoToMeeting is available in all major languages, including Brazilian, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Spanish for iPhone and iPad. These GoToMeeting mobile and desktop features are currently available worldwide.

GoToMeeting provided more than 50 million online meetings in 2014, Citrix said.
