BOSTON, May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn’s (NASDAQ:LOGM) popular online meeting and collaboration tool, join.me, has introduced a fresh take on getting virtual face time with your team, customers and partners in crime. Starting today, anyone with an iPhone, iPad or iPad Pro can enjoy join.me’s signature instant, fun and simple video meetings – for free.
The new mobile video is included as part of the join.me app for iOS and replicates the video conferencing bubbles featured in join.me’s web and desktop experience. On iOS, users can move and bounce the bubbles around the screen, even collapse into the corner to maximize screen space. The video bubbles include controls that allow the user to mute themselves, start a chat, and more. Presenters can pass the presenter role to someone else, or, when required, kick out any less-than-well-behaved or otherwise unwanted attendees.
join.me brings the benefits and ease of one-to-one mobile video chat to teams with multiple video streams for all users. The join.me FREE product provides five video streams per meeting, plus free VoIP calling. join.me PRO and BUSINESS users get 10 video streams per meeting, as well as other features like unlimited audio calling with domestic and international conferencing lines and more. With the update, users can now share content and collaborate via voice and video from anywhere.
“More and more professionals are using their mobile devices as the primary way to share ideas, present concepts, and collaborate with their colleagues and customers. We built our app with that in mind,” said Craig Daniel, Vice President, Products, join.me. “The new join.me app for iOS, with document sharing, whiteboarding, audio, and now video is everything they need to get work done efficiently and hassle free.”
join.me joins the Apple Mobility Partner Program
join.me sees mobile as an important way people will meet and collaborate, and is focused on the best user experience on iOS. join.me’s mobile video for iOS is the latest in a series of iOS updates including day one support of iOS 9, and new devices such as the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Apple Watch. Also, as of this past quarter, join.me is now an Apple mobility partner.

The iOS app is free, and works on the following devices (or above) for video: iPhone 5S, iPad mini 2, iPad Air, or 6th generation iPod touch or above.
