join.me is a good service for organizing professional meetings on different platforms and for sharing the screens of each participant. However, a less intuitive interface than under iOS and repeated bugs tarnish the results of this Android application, which is still very practical for joining audio and video conferences via VoIP or by phone.
VoIP or videoconference meetings
join.me is an Android application also available in iOS, web browsers and Windows that allows you to organize meetings via instant messaging, VoIP and videoconferencing. Dedicated to professionals, this application is designed to share your screen remotely and schedule work meetings with ease.
When creating a new account, the user automatically starts a trial version of the Pro edition which will switch to the free version after 14 days. Note that the Android application like iOS does not require any account to join a meeting organized by a member who must, however, subscribe to one of the subscriptions between Lite, Pro and Business.
Its functionalities under Android
The free version of join.me only allows access to meetings already organized by a member called the presenter. Only the latter can authorize the connection of new meeting participants. During the conversation, a participant can activate his microphone and his camera and choose the person to put in full screen in the form of bubbles.
In Android, it is possible to request the role of the presenter to share his screen with the other participants. In theory because our tests resulted in the abrupt termination of the application.
The Android version is clearly less intuitive and practical than the iOS version. The interface lacks simplicity for accessing the various functions. Recurring bugs during the tests could make our microphone unavailable despite several attempts, a possible version problem.
