Citrix today announced the launch of GoToMeeting Free, a web-based communications platform that gives users quick and simple video sync-ups. With just one click, GoToMeeting Free is a fast way to instantly communicate, whether discussing a project with colleagues or just chatting with friends in another country.
GoToMeeting Free, which is now accessible via Chrome browser, offers free, unlimited-use video conferencing for up to three people. It is an entirely browser-based platform that allows users to seamlessly join an audio/video call without needing to log in, download additional software, or enable plug-ins.
“GoToMeeting Free is yet another example of how we are responding to customer needs to create innovative communication tools that reach a broader audience,” said Phil Chambers, product line director, GoToMeeting. “Offering a free, lightweight version of GoToMeeting meets the needs of everyday consumers while also giving business users confidence in a secure platform backed by Citrix. GoToMeeting Free can be used for work or play, on the fly, at any time and from anywhere.”
"We worked closely with Citrix to enable GoToMeeting Free, first for the Chrome browser," said Rajen Sheth, Google director of product management, Chrome for Business and Education. "Available now in the Chrome Web Store, this app provides easy-to-use, instant video conferencing on Chrome or Chromebooks, with the power of cutting edge browser voice and video technologies enabled by Web RTC."About Citrix Citrix (NASDAQ:CTXS) is a leader in virtualization, networking and cloud infrastructure to enable new ways for people to work better.
