I had previously written about Mikogo and even used it to diagnose a problem on my brother’s laptop remotely (I’m in Australia and he’s in Malaysia). Version 2.0 of Mikogo has recently been released with several major improvements.
With greater capabilities and ease of use in mind, Mikogo launches its new version with several new features backing up its cost-free solution to online meetings. Meeting scheduler, session recorder, whiteboard toolbar, and a conference call service are just a few of the new features offered in Mikogo version 2.0, providing a powerful screen sharing tool available for everyone at no cost.
While version 2.0 includes a tweaked interface to enhance usability, the major focus of this release is undoubtedly the addition of several new free Mikogo features. All current and future Mikogo users can now organize online meetings with the following new features:
− Meeting scheduler
− Conference call service
− Session recording
− Back monitor
− Copy/Paste meeting info
− Instant screen build-up
One feature in particular that is bound to gain heavy attention, is that of the free meeting scheduler. This new addition to the Mikogo feature list enables users to plan their online meetings ahead of time, and then email the details to the invited participants along with a reminder email for the organizer. Ideal for the small business owner to keep track of their online discussions with clients, colleagues and business contacts. The Skype Extra is what I find really useful as well.
