VoIP is now in beta at beta.join.me

You heard right (sorry, I couldn’t resist). You can now use VoIP in join.me at beta.join.me. Why is it on our beta site? Because we want you to test it out, and tell us what you think at beta@join.me.

Let’s talk: VoIP (Voice over IP) technology allows you to call into the join.me audio conference from your computer. You can talk to anyone in the world, hands-free, for free. You can now choose to join the conference via the internet or your phone. No matter how you join the conference, you’ll be able to hear everyone on the conference, loud and clear. Let me repeat that, because it might be the coolest thing you’ll hear all day: No matter how you call in – from your phone, mobile app or computer – everyone will be connected on join.me. Check out our new “Phone” menu button in the join.me toolbar on the left. Click “connect” to join by internet.

Listen up: You can try VoIP by going to beta.join.me and either share your screen or join a session. Feel free to sign in to our beta site with your pro credentials to use your personal URL and background. If you start a join.me session on beta, don’t forget to tell your participants to join your sesion on beta.join.me so they can try VoIP, too.

One more thing: We want your feedback. Hey, that’s why we’re putting this on our beta site in the first place. We want you to test it out from your Mac or PC, try it every which way, and let us know what you think at beta@join.me.

  2. VoIP!! This is HUGE!! Lack of VoIP was really the only major thing holding me back from going to a pro account. This will allow participants to add voice truly free of charge.
    Will you be working in a way to mute participants or perhaps make a push-to-talk option? Larger meetings can get noisy if all mics are always hot.

    Great work, gang!

  3. I think join.me is an excellent product.

    I have been testing the VOIP function in the Beta using 2 PC’s on the same home office network..

    The call volume seemed very low despite my having the mic and speaker volumes at maximum in both the audio devices properties and in Join.me. I disconnected the call on one of the PC’s and re-connected and the volume was fine.

    Wondewr why I needed to do that? Ideally, I need to test with other users e.g. customers and friends to see if I get the same experience there.

    I also have some feedback about join.me abd am wondering where I can communicate it?

    • Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your note. I’m not sure why you needed to do that, but I would love it if you emailed me the specifics of what happened so I can pass it on to our audio developers. We’ll need a few things from you: Your OS, browsers, kind of computer, speaker/mic setup, internet connection, and if you remember that meeting code or not.

      You are also welcome to send along any other feedback you have about join.me – just send it to maggie@join.me.

  4. I love join.me it is very simple and easyt o use. I am doing a lot of product ttrining and the last thing participants needs to learn another system.

    Welcome VolIP this is great I was waiting for that for a while. I tested with PC and Mac and it worked . Now I need to have a longer session and see how it goes.
    Question: my default e-mail provider is Yahoo and I can not send automated join.me link via e-mail to my participants. So far I am doing manually. Any plans or work arounds to solve it????

  5. Positively ingenious design.

    Also the new audio feature is a must have. However, and it may simply be because of my operating system (vista on gateway), but I am unable to use the viewer VOIP function in another’s session; no option to join by internet.

    I’m just wondering if there was ever a previous instance of this occurring and how it could be resolved. Please, thank you, and keep up the great work!!

  6. Just tried it, others on the call were complaining about interference on the line…there was no way I could find to mute the line. Had to drop off and go back to normal phone call. Was really excited but doesn’t look like it is quite there yet.

  7. I really like join.me screen sharing system. It is no doubt, far more better than Skype for screen sharing, but unfortunately it can be compared with Skype when it comes to VOIP. I tried audio calls on beta.join.me but they were horrible. Very poor quality. Can’t you do anything to improve it?

  8. Hi I am a math tutor. I have a quick question. If I am home and I want to share my screen to students. Can they listen videos from my computer. I mean can they listen the audio from my computer ? Thank you.

  9. I would like to use join.me to teach some of my fellow singers how to use programs on the PC to help learn their parts more easily. So I want them to see my screen and my mouse movements, but I also want us all to be able to hear me talking and hear each others questions.

    Given this scenario, several questions:

    – what level of account do I, the screen sharer, need to have?

    – will the other participants be able to both see my screen and join the VoIP conversation without buying or installing any software?

    – Is there any limit on how many viewing participants there can be in either the screen sharing or the voice session?

    Thanks!

  10. There can be no doubt that the way businesses meet has undergone a major metamorphosis in the last few years. For generations the only that businesses could get together was in person. When you stop and consider this often mean airfare, hotels, meals and other expenses, it is easy to see how much audio conferencing has done to change the business meeting world for the better. This does not even take into consideration all of the lost time commuting to and from the meetings.:
