BlueJeans Supports New Microsoft Edge Browser with Full Video Conferencing Experience


    BlueJeans is proud to announce day-zero support for
    Microsoft’s new
    Chromium-based Edge browser
    was released earlier today
    . Microsoft’s new browser
    experience promises to deliver a rich set of security and privacy
    settings to end users, while simultaneously taking advantage of the
    Chromium open-source
    to provide better compatibility and an overall
    improved browsing experience. BlueJeans’
    award-winning browser-based meeting experience
    works flawlessly
    on the new Edge browser and provides users with a simple and secure
    way to join any BlueJeans Meeting. 

    Similar to the experience on
    Chrome and Firefox
    , the Edge browser provides BlueJeans users
    with crystal-clear, 2-way VoiP and Video.  Just because a user
    prefers to conduct their meetings in the browser, doesn’t mean
    they shouldn’t be able to take advantage of BlueJeans’
    world-class audio-visual experience.  The audio is enriched with
    Opus Spatial Audio, delivering an immersive experience that makes
    it easier to distinguish between two individuals when they are
    speaking at the same time.  Furthermore, meeting attendees have
    the ability to both share and receive content—documents, slides,
    pictures, video, other web pages…literally anything—which is
    important because not every browser enables content sharing.

    One of our customers’ favorite features within our browser
    experience is known as Intelligent Join and is available within
    Edge as well.  This feature enables meeting hosts to customize how
    their meeting attendees will join a meeting—via the desktop app
    or the browser.  This is important because when you are engaging
    with meeting attendees outside of your company, maybe as an HR
    Recruiter or a Sales Rep, you don’t know whether they necessarily
    have administrative rights to download the BlueJeans app. 
    Therefore, this feature drives meeting attendees directly to the
    browser experience without any potential disruptions to the meeting
    itself.  This join flow setting has made a huge difference for our
    customers are we are excited to now bring it to Edge.

    Additionally, because Edge is built on Chromium, existing Chrome
    Extensions work within Edge.  Therefore, BlueJeans users can
    download the
    BlueJeans Chrome Extension
    to easily add a a quick start
    meeting button, configure their browser settings, and visit their
    account page to perform more customizations.  This extension makes
    it easy to jump into a meeting or manage your settings without
    having to switch context and spend time opening and closing

    We are thrilled to support Microsoft’s new Edge browser and
    wish our browser users many more successful and productive
    BlueJeans Meetings. To give the new Edge a shot, download here. To launch
    a BlueJeans Meeting in the Browser, simply open your browser of
    choice, type in, insert your personal meeting ID,
    and add /webrtc – Example:
