join.me For Android, Now With Video!
We are constantly improving and updating the join.me experience to make it even better and simpler for our users. Over the summer we released our first mobile video for iOS and today we are excited to be adding Android devices to the list of ways you can meet with video. With so many employees working remotely, we want to make sure you don’t lose that face to face connection with co-workers, clients or prospects and now that mobile video is available on both Android and iOS it’s easier than ever to stay connected.
Check out the below for some tips on how to get started!
After updating or downloading the join.me app and starting or joining a meeting you’ll see that there’s a new video icon in the toolbar.
Tap on the video icon to start using video. The first time you do this, you will see a couple permission prompts. The first is to allow join.me to access your microphone so that others will hear you in the meeting.
The second prompt is to allow join.me to access your camera so that others will see you in the video conference.
After the permissions prompts, the video preview window will open.
Tap on “Connect” when you are ready to connect to the video conference. This is your chance to check your hair and smile before you connect! At this point, you’ll also have the option to connect with audio. If you want to use VoIP, you can turn audio on using your device’s microphone to connect to the call using Internet. If you’re going to be dialing in using a telephone number, toggle this button off. Press “connect” and your video bubble will appear!
As others join, their video bubbles will pop open.
If you are the presenter in a meeting and you choose to share your phone’s or tablet’s screen with other participants, your camera will be turned off while you do this. Participants in your meeting will see your shared screen and the join.me video bubbles for all other participants. When you return to the join.me app, screen sharing stops and your camera will be automatically turned on again.
Once you’ve started video, you can use join.me as you normally would. You can share your screen, chat, mute your line, and pass presenter role. You can move the bubbles around, and even collapse all of them into a corner to get them out of the way and maximize screen viewing space!
Using join.me on-the-go, you won’t ever miss a team meeting, presentation, or 1:1.
