Verizon Business Adds New Features to BlueJeans Mobile
Verizon Business announced new capabilities for BlueJeans Mobile for Android and iOS and new as-a-service packaging options for BlueJeans Rooms. The latest updates to the BlueJeans platform deliver a new set of functionality across work modes: office, home or remote/field. They were designed to support the workflow consistency and inclusivity teams need to be productive in today’s work environment.
BlueJeans has added these new features to BlueJeans Mobile:
- Zero-Touch Conference Room Access: Working on legacy standards-based endpoints (SIP/H.323) and the new Android-based experience for BlueJeans Rooms, meeting participants will be able to use their mobile devices to start and control meetings running on their conference room systems. Using a new pairing code on the in-room monitor and a new Pair with Room button in the mobile app, the mobile user can join a meeting through the mobile app and then control the experience with audio/video controls. Once paired, the meeting room calendar will also be synced to the mobile user’s calendar. Enhancements such as chat and raise hand will help to foster inclusiveness, while users on the move will appreciate Meeting Shift, where a mobile user auto pairs with a conference room in-meeting and moves the meeting to the room using the same Pair with Room workflow.
- Mobile Collaboration with Collab Board: iOS and Android users can now access the BlueJeans Collaboration Board on their mobile devices. With simultaneous co-creation for up to 25 users, Collab Board provides an integrated, infinite canvas for brainstorming.
- BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service with Poly: Poly’s native Android BlueJeans Rooms experience will be available through a Rooms-as-a-Service model partnership. BlueJeans Rooms-as-a-Service running on the Poly Studio X30 and X50 will enable customers to transform how conference room-bound employees are able to participate in hybrid meetings through a simplified subscription offering that combines BlueJeans Rooms software, Poly hardware, maintenance and support. The Poly X Series features broadcast-quality video with Poly DirectorAI technology, which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver real-time automatic transitions, framing and tracking, while NoiseBlockAI and Acoustic Fence technologies block out unwanted background noise to create collaboration equity by ensuring all participants have a seat at the virtual table.
- Meetings+ with Owl Labs: Organizations of all sizes will soon be able to procure the Meeting Owl Pro and a package of BlueJeans Meetings Enterprise licenses in a bundled offering. Setup is plug-and-play, takes minutes to implement and does not require any IT support.
