Virtual Office Meetings offers you a flexible web and audio conferencing experience that turns ordinary phone calls into productive meetings.
New and Classic In-Meeting Experiences
Starting with version 5.9 of the Virtual Office desktop app, we are introducing a brand-new in-meeting experience that is integrated with your Virtual Office application window, and enables you to navigate a more intuitive interface. Enjoy a streamlined participant invite experience, dynamic video, enhanced content sharing, and much more!
If you are running the latest version of the Virtual Office desktop app, you already have access to the latest in-meeting experience. If you are running an older version of the app, you may need to enable the new experience manually, or update the app in order to access the latest improvements to your Virtual Office Meetings experience:
- If you are using version 6.0 or newer, the new in-meeting experience is fully integrated with your Virtual Office desktop app.
- If you are using version 5.9 but are not seeing the new in-meeting experience, open the More tab, go to Settings, and enable the New Meeting Experience option.
- If you are using version 5.8 or older, you only have access to the classic in-meeting experience. To take advantage of the new in-meeting experience, you must upgrade to the latest version of the Virtual Office desktop app.
Note: This Virtual Office Meetings experience is available starting with version 5.9 of the Virtual Office desktop app. If you are using an earlier version, upgrade to the latest version to gain access. To learn which version of the app you are using, go to Virtual Office > About Virtual Office in the top menu bar of the app.
