The New Version 5 Features

The big addition to the latest Mikogo release is the official launch of our Voice Over IP (VoIP) feature. We first released this as a beta feature and some of you may have seen it during its beta phase. The VoIP feature completed a successful beta phase and is now ready for its official move into the Mikogo Version 5 feature set!

Aside from the official VoIP feature, you will also find the following in Version 5:

  • Teleconferencing – we have local teleconference numbers for over 28 countries, all of which are displayed in the Version 5 software.
  • Compatibility Improvements – 100% compatibility with Windows 8/8.1 and Apple’s OS X Mavericks.
  • Mac Retina Support – users can host and join meetings from a Mac with a Retina Display.
  • Mac Viewer Program – making it even easier for participants to join your meetings from a Mac computer.

These new features and the software’s enhanced OS compatibility, has resulted in significant enhancements for Mikogo.
