Voice ConferencingIt’s here! 4.7 is here! We at Mikogo are thrilled to announce the beta release of the VOIP voice conferencing service which our dev team have been working hard on bringing to you. Although it is only in the beta stages, it is fully-functioning and ready for you! We have the utmost confidence that once you experience a Mikogo voice conference, you’ll be as pleased with it as we are 🙂

Users can start their voice conference upon launching the software. All they need to do is start a desktop sharing session, as per usual, and they will see the option for Voice Conferencing while they share their screen. The icon for this will be a headset and will be accompanied by a drawer that reads “Voice Conferencing (Beta)”. From there you can speak through a headset or speak into your computer’s built-in microphone with ease.

Easy Voice Conferencing

One factor that was important in making this addition was that the voice option be hassle-free and easy-to-use. We understand that there other conferencing services out there which can make life complicated where it doesn’t need to be. With our new voice service, audio conferencing with Mikogo is a clear, two-way connection with 2 easy to control microphone and speaker volume settings – all built-in and available directly from within the software interface which has been designed for easy navigation and use. From there, users can speak to each other via VOIP while simultaneously sharing their screens in a Mikogo desktop sharing session. Desktop sharing and free VOIP combined has made Mikogo a full-blown web conferencing service.

As presenter, you are given complete control over the voice control options for everyone within the sessions. You are able to mute particular individuals or mute everyone in the session but yourself. While participants do have some control (the ability to unmute themselves), ultimately, supreme control lies with the presenter. Think of yourself as supreme voice conferencing overlord!
