Research In Motion has just announced that a new version of BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing is now available for download from App World. BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing 2.0 brings lots of new features and enhancements in comparison with previous versions of the application.
Popular among business users, the application automatically turns an email thread into a conference call with the help of the user’s conference bridge details.
In addition, BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing can dial multiple conference call numbers that, a conference ID and other codes, with a simple one-click. It also tries to reconnect automatically any dropped call from the conference.
According to RIM, the new version of the application comes with BlackBerry Calendar, which enables users to schedule and join conference calls directly from within the Calendar much easier.
“BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing is an essential app for anyone who sets up or joins conference calls. This latest version of BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing includes a number of enhancements such as the ability to turn any email thread into a conference call automatically, making it even easier for BlackBerry users to get things done,” said Tom Goguen, vice president, collaboration and social networking at Research In Motion.
Furthermore, BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing 2.0 provides users with the possibility to keep moderator codes private and send conference invites using a preset conference profile that includes limited info.
There’s also the option to add preset conference call details to almost any meeting scheduled by simply selecting from up to ten pre-defined profiles.
BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing 2.0 is available as a free download from BlackBerry App World and is fully compatible with BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry 5 operating system and up.
However, business customers can automatically push the app to their users via BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The application seems to be available only in North America for the moment, but hopefully it will soon reach other regions as well.
