Lifesize recently announced the launch of Lifesize Go, a free video conferencing service that allows people to meet face-to-face, share content and collaborate across teams.
Built to work across several browsers and operating systems, Lifesize Go “delivers a mobile-first, reliable and secure group video conferencing experience for up to eight participants with no downloads, subscription requirements or restrictions on meeting length,” according to the company announcement.
Lifesize Go is available now via Chrome or Safari browsers on iOS, Android, Mac and Windows devices.
“The consumerization of video has led to exploding demand for hassle-free video conferencing that empowers users to connect from any device with a click of a button,” said Roopam Jain, industry director for connected work practice at Frost & Sullivan, in the Lifesize announcement.
“Vendors that understand the burgeoning UX movement and are making video communications at work as simple as consumer apps are winning,” Jain said.
Meeting organizers can quickly facilitate and host video calls natively through the browser, eliminating the need for guests to download additional software in advance. Hosts can initiate an unlimited number of video calls with no restrictions on meeting length.
How It Works
Participants can join on any device by clicking a one-time meeting link generated by the web app, which can be delivered through email, SMS text message or chat.
Whether calls take place over a mobile network or wi-fi, Lifesize Go connects teams and helps them collaborate through crisp, high-definition video and screen sharing.
“Lifesize Go is a better way for team members within enterprises to instantly and productively connect with their colleagues, customers and other collaborators through free, fast and flexible video communication,” said Lifesize CTO Bobby Beckmann in the company announcement.
“It’s never been easier to experience and harness Lifesize’s innovation and video quality for any meeting on any device,” he said.
Lifesize Go delivers video communication and collaboration enhancements including:
- Free, unlimited group video calls. Schedule as many video calls as needed with up to eight participants, without time limits or subscription requirements.
- Host and join meetings without complexity. Facilitate one-to-one and group video meetings using built-in browsers on both desktop and mobile devices, saving time by avoiding pre-meeting coordination or the need to download software.
- Secure content sharing. Share a screen, application or browser tab with remote guests from a desktop device for improved collaboration over Lifesize’s secure, enterprise-grade cloud video conferencing platform.
