Now Available: Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0 – with enhanced hosting controls for mobile-to-mobile collaboration and training
We’re tremendously excited to announce that our latest version of Adobe Connect Mobile, version 2.0, is now available for iOS and Android devices!
With the realities of today’s business environments where employees and customers are on the move worldwide, it’s not practical to expect that opportunities to collaborate or train only arise while in the office or at a desk. An effective web conferencing solution needs to provide users with the flexibility to not just participate in meetings, but to fully host, collaborate, and drive meetings from their mobile device. It needs to enable trainers to not just provide learner access from any device, but also deliver that training from a mobile device.
With this in mind, we bring you Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0, offering meeting hosts and participants complete confidence to engage in web meetings, webinars, and virtual classrooms on the move using iOS or Android devices. We’ve extended many of the capabilities of previous releases with powerful new features, particularly on tablets. For example:
Complete meeting administration
In addition to existing hosting controls (begin/end meetings, manage attendance, manage attendee roles – Host, Presenter, or Participant, etc.), hosts can now fully control meeting recordings, audio conferencing, and video.
Share content from the cloud or device
Share presentations, videos, images and other content stored in your library in the cloud; in the image library; or on the device drive* itself (*Android).
Enhanced presentation controls and interactivity
In addition to existing presentation controls (presenting content, advancing slides, taking shared notes, running polls, etc.), hosts can now whiteboard with the tip of a finger, change layouts, and foster interaction with a range of emoticons.
The app supports the following devices and operating systems:
– Devices: iPad, iPad2, iPad3; iPhone 4 and 4 S, iPod touch (3rd generation minimum recommended)
– Supported OS versions: iOS 4.3.x, 5.x, or 6.x (5.x or higher recommended)
– Devices: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1), Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Tab (10.1), ASUS Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Tab (7”) , Motorola Xoom, Motorola Xoom 2.
– Supported OS versions: 2.2 and higher.
– AIR Runtime required: 3.2 or higher
Adobe Connect Mobile 2.0 is not yet available for BlackBerry Playbook, but please stay tuned for updates. Our 1.7.5 version continues to be available here in BlackBerry App World.
