ScreenMeet’s new app lets you share your screen in mobile meetings

Dec 15, 2015

Tags: ClearSlide , Gotomeeting , Join.me , projector , Screen share , ScreenMeet Image Credit: Screenshot Virtual meetings may not take place while you’re sitting at your desk anymore — they’re more likely to happen when you’re on your mobile device. But what’s missing in this scenario is the ability to share your screen — which has, for the most part, been difficult to do on a smartphone. ScreenMeet believes it can help and has launched what it calls the “first secure mobile app that enables screen sharing from Android phones and tablets to any device.” Started by Ben Lilienthal and Eugene Abovsky, ScreenMeet is taking on the likes of GoToMeeting and Join.me, competitors in a field Lilienthal has some experience in. Before starting the company, he started Voice over IP audio-conferencing service Vapps, which was eventually sold to Citrix Systems. “At GoToMeeting, we saw all the different businesses and the problems that were never solved. It’s the classic innovators dilemma,” Lilienthal explained. “Most GoToMeetings are three people sharing a PowerPoint or doing a screen share. What wasn’t solved was a use case as the market matures: there’s a need for tools to be specialized.” Anyone can sign up for ScreenMeet and instantly get up and running. The app is required for anyone who wants to share the screen on their Android device, but is not required for those who only want to view — that just requires an HTML5-enabled browser. Every time you register for an email address, you get a dedicated URL (like screenmeet.com/venturebeat), which you can change at any time. Presenters are given a variety of controls, including how to manage who accesses their “room,” which devices are being used, what’s being seen in the presentation, ways to kick out abusive participants, and more. From VentureBeat Ready to think outside the (ad) box? We’ve got the secret to successful F2P ad monetization and we’re ready to spill the details – for free. Sign up here. When they’re using Join.me or GoToMeeting, presenters will be showing everything that happens on their screen, so participants will see notifications, desktop apps, and more. This is the same on a smartphone, meaning that presenters can use the video camera on their smartphone to show participants what they’re seeing. The company is targeting inside sales, customer support, and account management within small to medium-sized enterprise companies. People can give presentations on ScreenMeet using Android phones running version 5.0 or higher, but again, if you’re viewing, you just need to have a modern browser that supports HTML5. The service is free to use right now, but a paid version could be in its future. Other things that Lilienthal has on the roadmap include implementing one-way voice/video capabilities, launching an iOS app, and rolling out messaging. ScreenMeet has raised $1.6 million from RRE, New Atlantic Ventures, and angel investors. Press Releases
