Lifesize adds integrated group chat to Cloud platform16 March 2016
Lifesize has expanded the free chat functionality in its Lifesize Cloud service with the addition of group chat.
Lifesize group chat extends meetings beyond the conference room, helping teams continue problem solving more efficiently. However, when the team wants to meet in person, Lifesize chat upgrades to a video call with one click. Users can also participate in chats in multiple meeting rooms, return to a previous chat session, or review their chat history.
“The global cloud-based conferencing market represents a $9.4 billion opportunity that remains extremely fragmented. Currently, companies are paying a premium for inconsistent experiences, slow adoption, reduced productivity, and increased security risks,” said Craig Malloy, Lifesize CEO. “The enhancement of our free chat feature solidifies Lifesize’s position as a leading all-in-one solution that consolidates the critical elements of collaboration into one offering, extending the conversation beyond the meeting. We continue to enhance the user experience and are excited to provide our rapidly growing customer base with even more productivity and value.”
In addition, the company has extended its recording and sharing capability, Lifesize Cloud Amplify, to Lifesize Cloud Web App. Users of this browser-based app can now record and share meetings, training sessions, and messages with colleagues through their personal video library.
