When you work with people in other locations, there are some times when you simply must see each other’s screens. A picture is worth 1,000 words after all. The good news is that there are a lot of really good options for this task.
If you want super fast and easy to use, give join.me a try. It is so easy, it is what I use with my Dad to help him troubleshoot his PC. I love my dad to death, but if he can use it anyone can – trust me! 😎 With join.me there isn’t any downloads for viewers, and you’ll be up and running in seconds from your desktop, to your tablet to your smart phone.
Google Hangouts are another great, free option. While it’s not as easy to get started as join.me it does have a few extra features to offer. If you use other Google tools, this might be right up your alley. Video conversations are a snap and you’ll also have the option of joining from your tablet or phone with Hangouts too.
If you need something a bit more “corporate”, both gotomeeting and Webex have free versions that let you hold meetings with up to three connections.
Are you already using one of these? Or maybe something else? Let me know how you use these types of tools and what tips you’ve found that work well for you.
