BBM Meetings

We have been testing BBM Meetings several times in the last 24 hours. The results are very encouraging.

BBM Meetings is a conference call system supported on Mac and Windows, Android and BlackBerry, and soon iOS. You need a BlackBerry ID to participate. No matter which device you use, you will always log in with that ID. If you want to host a conference you need a subscription which is roughly 10 € a month. Participation in your conference is free. You can test with a 30-day free subscription.

We have tried several conferences, started from a P'9983 or a Mac, several people have used a number of different devices but mostly BlackBerry Passports. In the meeting pictures above, I am hosting the conference from a Mac and both Michael and Ralph are on their Passports. Michael is on Wifi, Ralph mobile on HSPA. Joining a conference is just clicking a link you get through your invitation. You can also just type in the conference ID.

So far I have only used ad-hoc meetings, but you can schedule a meeting in advance and protect it with a password. But there is more:

Looks like I am going to use it for lots of calls.

Nice, but actually you can do that via Skype as well, even with video, though you can´t initiate a video conference from a mobile device. You can using video conferencing for up to 10 people. A non-video call can be used for up to 25 people. Also one or several people can share there desktop view, we are using that often at work. Best: all that is free!

I shudder at the prospect of a ten-member video call or an audio conference with twenty five people. Augh!

well, earlier today we did a 10 people audio conference with 1 person sharing his screen, but of course that´s only 1 person talking and other asking some questions in between.

As I said its ZOOM under covers and we run 40 people on calls with video and its great...not inovation!

Ceci n'est pas un blog
