LogMeIn's Meeting App, Join.me, Hits 50-Million-Participants Milestone, Now Averaging More Than A Million New Users Every Month

WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc.'s (Nasdaq:LOGM) instant screen sharing and online meeting app, join.me, which provides a simpler and easier-to-use alternative to traditional web conferencing products,is rapidly making a case as the fastest-growing collaboration product on the market. Launched in late 2010, join.me's signature speed and ease-of-use has attracted tens of millions of loyal users, and recently propelled the product past the 50-million-participant milestone. Every week more than half a million people use join.me to collaborate on projects across the hall or across the globe. And every month more than one million people host or attend their first ever join.me meeting.

The milestone comes as LogMeIn continues to unveil new benefits to the free and pro versions of join.me, while staying true to the product's signature lightweight experience.

LogMeIn recently rolled out a new 'window sharing' option for users of join.me pro that lets meeting hosts select any window on their screen to share with other online meeting participants, ensuring that participants will not see an ill-timed email, tweet or instant message alert during a presentation, demo, or sales pitch. Window sharing is the latest addition to the join.me pro offering, which builds on join.me's free screen sharing capabilities by offering business-friendly features like premium audio conferencing lines, presenter swapping options, private meeting rooms, custom meeting links, and administrative control for teams.

The company also introduced a new free join.me app for Windows 8-based PCs, tablets and mobile devices, designed for the Metro UI. The complementary app follows on the success of the free join.me iPad, iPhone and Android apps, and can be used with either the free or pro versions of join.me.

"In 2012, join.me has become LogMeIn's fastest growing product, both in terms of new users and new sales, and we believe it's now among the fastest growing collaboration products on the market," said Lou Orfanos, Director of Collaboration Products for LogMeIn. "As join.me grows to serve millions of users and their broadening needs, we will continue to invest in delivering powerful features while maintaining a simple yet elegant experience, a core philosophy we believe will continue to drive rapid, viral user adoption."

An instant screen sharing and online meeting service from LogMeIn, join.me is used by millions of people and hundreds of thousands of businesses for everything from meeting online, to quick, ad-hoc, show-and-tell collaboration. A free version delivers on-the-fly collaboration in a matter of seconds -- no registration or additional plug-ins required -- and supports up to 250 participants. A 'pro' version of the service with extended functionality is available for $19 per month or $149 per year.
