Stream Video from Your File Library

One of the new additions to GlobalMeet 3.1 is the ability for hosts to stream video into the meeting directly from their File Library. After uploading a compatible video file, hosts are a single click away from sharing high-quality video with their guests.

In addition to video streaming, we’ve added presentation support for some additional content types in the File Library. You can now share the following file types into your next GlobalMeet meeting:

  • Word – .doc, .docx
  • Excel – .xls, .xlsx
  • Images – .gif, .jpg, .png

Even Easier Meeting Access

Several of the updates and enhancements included in GlobalMeet 3.1 make meeting access even easier for both hosts and guests. For example, a new “My Info” interface has been added, allowing GlobalMeet users to easily save and manage their phone numbers and set Auto-Connect audio preferences, letting you get into your meetings even faster. Guests can also access “My Info” by taking advantage of the new “Registered User” feature” By doing so, registered guests can store and manage their phone numbers for future use.

Screen Share Enhancements, Improved Interfaces and More

A number of enhancements have been made to GlobalMeet to make it faster and more intuitive than ever before. GlobalMeet Screen Share will now update automatically in the background without interrupting your meeting experience and it now supports Slide Show mode in PowerPoint. The Help and Support interface has been redesigned to make getting support during your next virtual meeting easier than ever. And several bug fixes and performance enhancements have been made to make your GlobalMeet experience smoother and faster.
