Simply add @BlueJeans to Workplace Chat for an immersive collaboration experience.
San Jose, CA-- May 1, 2018 -- Blue Jeans Network, Inc., the first cloud service to connect desktops, mobile devices and room systems in one video meeting, today announced its latest integration with Workplace by Facebook. Now, any Workplace user can instantly launch a BlueJeans meeting by simply adding @BlueJeans to their Workplace Chat. This powerful combination results in users getting both the flexibility of chat and the efficiency of face-to-face communications.
“Chat is one of the most commonly used features in Workplace, and Facebook just made it even more valuable,” said John Knightly, SVP Product and Solution Marketing at BlueJeans. “Because employees have questions that often require complex explanations, or coworkers need to see each other face-to-face to make key decisions, there should be a mechanism to instantly connect from Chat without killing the conversation to go find a room or toggle between technologies. With the new BlueJeans integration with Workplace Chat, immersive collaboration is seamless.”
Starting today, individuals or entire teams can launch rich, multi-party video meetings from any Workplace Chat message by typing @BlueJeans within the chat window. They can also invoke a bot directly through Workplace Chat Extensions feature. Once the integration is installed across the enterprise, users can invite individuals or multiple parties and share their screens just like a regular BlueJeans meeting. The @BlueJeans command instantly saves colleagues the time, frustration, and complications associated with switching applications once the team wants to meet.
This new chat functionality builds on the existing integration of BlueJeans with Workplace, which makes it possible to:
- Conduct interactive video meetings so that participants can fully engage with one another
- Deliver presentations via BlueJeans while sharing content through Workplace
- Broadcast multi-party events independent of location or device
- Surface relevant content and conversations, making them readily accessible to people who need them
- Use Workplace to serve as a repository for meetings so that group members can stay current 24/7 and refer back to past discussions as needed
