London, UNITED KINGDOM February 12, 2014 – The established global service provider of online meeting solutions, Mikogo, has today officially launched its VoIP feature as part of its new software release, Version 5. This latest major release from Mikogo not only includes a built-in VoIP feature for voice conferencing between online meeting participants, but also includes phone numbers for free telephone conferencing along with further compatibility and cross-platform improvements.
The inclusion of the VoIP feature, which passed through a successful beta period in a previous software release, is the standout addition in Mikogo Version 5. During an online meeting, a customer can now establish a crystal-clear call with all their meeting participants live over the Web and through the computer’s speakers
and microphone (or external headset) via the VoIP feature. Version 5 also includes advanced VoIP settings where the customer can adjust their microphone sensitivity and enable the software’s noise reduction and echo cancellation functions.
Users also have the opportunity to select between the telephone conferencing numbers or the VoIP feature directly from within the software. The telephone conferencing option provides users with free local landline numbers in 28 countries.
Aside from the official release of the VoIP and telephone conference features, the launch of Version 5 also brings with it the following features:
* OS Compatibility Improvements – Version 5 is 100% compatible with both Windows 8 and 8.1, and with Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Mavericks.
* Mac Retina Support – users can host and join meetings from a Mac which has a Retina Display.
