If you have to set up a meeting in a hurry, with a group of people who all have different chat clients, and who don’t want to go through length sign up process to connect, then Join.Me is the one-stop solution you are looking for.
A versatile solution
Join.Me is a lightweight program that lets you share video, audio, and your screen with multiple users instantly. After installing, join me lets you invite people via email with a simple “add people” button. You can also invite people to join by sending them a link to your room. Once they join they will see your feed in their browser window, and you can chose how you want to begin.
If you don’t feel like jumping straight into a full presentation then you can start chatting through a simple message window as people arrive. Like every other feature of the Join.Me this is activated by a simple click of the appropriate button, making it intuitive enough for anyone to use.
Lost of options
Once you are ready to go, Join.Me gives you the option to present your meeting with video and audio. It even offers you the option to present your screen – like everything else – with a single click.
On the presentation end, everything is very simple and works with ease. Audio and video are also nice and clear, although it does look like the screen presentation is being delivered through a 56k modem.
There are some features locked behind premium features. These include the ability to handover the presentation to another user, record, and annotation – but the basics are all there to start you off.
Join.Me is a great solution to set up quick presentations. And the importance of it being viewable in a browser should not be overlooked, as is stops you having to worry about what programs your audience has installed.
True, some handy features are locked behind a pay-wall and the screen sharing is less than perfect, but Join.Me is a versatile and complete presentation solution.
