join.me Bulks up 'Pro' Benefits, Stays Ridiculously Simple

Popular Screen Sharing Service Makes it Even Easier to Collaborate Online

WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn (Nasdaq:LOGM) just updated its ultra-simple screen sharing service, join.me, with a couple key collaborative features, including new benefits for join.me pro. An all-new desktop app, available for both the free and pro versions of join.me, gives users the ability to share their screen or view someone else's screen with a single click — accelerating join.me's already speedy start time. The new version also introduces a Presenter Swap feature for users of join.me pro, making it simple to quickly hand off control of a meeting or collaboration session to any participant.  New users and current users of join.me's free service can try the pro features as part of 14-day free trial, no credit card required.    

join.me is a drop-dead simple screen sharing service designed for online meetings and ad hoc, 'show-and-tell' collaboration. In less than a year on the market, the service's simplicity and utility — no registration, no cost, no plug-ins, near-instantaneous sharing of screens — has already attracted millions of loyal users, as well as recognition from The NY Times, Time Magazine, Macworld, CNET, Lifehacker, GigaOm, Entrepreneur and dozens of top media outlets. A free version of the service offers unlimited screen sharing and online meetings for both personal and commercial use for up to 250 participants — no registration, plug-ins or accounts required. A 'pro' version of the service with extended functionality is available for $19 per month or $149 per year.   

"The response to join.me's simple approach to screen sharing has been overwhelmingly positive, and we believe this simplicity is opening doors to new types of collaboration far beyond better online meetings. Among the millions of join.me early adopters we're seeing collaboration use cases that would be unthinkable with traditional web conferencing services — the experience is winning over far more than just the legions of unsatisfied meeting goers," said Kevin Bardos, vice president of Collaboration Technologies for LogMeIn.  "This favorable sentiment and new type of user is front and center when expanding join.me's capabilities — helping users do even more while retaining a simple, collaborative user experience."

The free version of join.me includes:

  • screen sharing for up to 250 participants
  • chat
  • remote screen control
  • file transfer
  • multi-monitor support
  • downloadable desktop app
  • iPad/iPhone or Android viewer for session attendees

  • auto-login via downloadable desktop app
  • personalized meeting link
  • personalized background
