New feature added to window sharing

We got some really great feedback when we put out the ability to share just one window instead of your whole screen. You loved it. You also asked for an easier way to switch between windows. So, we went back to work and came up with a cool little tool to help you do just that:

Here, you can see I’m sharing just one window on my screen. We’ve added a controller in the upper right (which you can move around, if you want), and when you click on it, it easily allows you to choose another open window to share. So now you don’t have to go back to the main menu to switch windows anymore. Easy, right?

What else would you like to see in window sharing? Let us know in the comments.

P.S. Haven’t tried window sharing yet? Take a free trial of join.me pro to check it out.

Knowledge Workers and the technology they use at work

People aren’t using the same old technology at the office anymore. Tried-and-true solutions are being replaced with personal devices and new tools that better meet the demands of our fast-paced, hyper-connected workplace. Bring Your Own Solution is becoming the new norm, not just a passing trend. At least that was our hunch. We needed to find out what people were really using to get down to business. Working with Harris Interactive, we conducted a survey of U.S. knowledge workers in March 2012.

Our goal was to figure out 3 things:

  • How do today’s knowledge workers prefer to communicate and collaborate at work?
  • What tools, technology and solutions are they using, and why?
  • Are those tools employer-provided or personal?

The results were thought-provoking, and even a little eye-opening. Here’s what we found out.

New feature: Window sharing now in beta (Mac)

Ever wish you could share just one file on your computer instead of your whole desktop? Welcome to window sharing, now in beta.

join.me‘s debuted a whole new look for pro Mac users, allowing you to choose either your whole desktop or just one window for your viewers to see. This way, when you’re sharing your screen, you have more control over what your viewers see – no more pesky Outlook reminders or IMs popping up in your meetings (hey, it’s happened to all of us.)

To choose a window to share, click on the drop-down arrow under the broadcast button and click “Window”. Hover over any of the open windows on your computer and click one to start sharing. Ta-da: Your viewers now only see that one window and nothing else. Now, you can share anything – without sharing everything.

Mac users can check this feature out now by signing up or signing in with their pro credentials at beta.join.me and starting a session. Since we’re still in beta, feedback is wanted and welcome at beta@join.me.

Windows users: You’re up next – keep checking the blog for news on window sharing for Windows beta availability.
