    Great minds think alike, as Apple embraces distributed workforce with new “Handoff” feature

Great minds think alike, as Apple embraces distributed workforce with new “Handoff” feature

It happens to most of us every single day: We start one task on our computer only for another task to call us away. It could be tending to a child, running an errand, or hopping into a meeting. The more distributed we get in our professional lives, the more engrained these sorts of disruptions become in our work habits.

It’s for this reason that we created an app at Voxeet that allows for seamless, single-click call transfer between mobiles and computers. Whatever device you need to switch to — laptop, tablet, smartphone — you can do it in real time…

Conference calls are here to stay

Alexis Madrigal’s recent blog post on NPR.org is titled “Have We Reached The End Of The Line For The Conference Call?” The answer is, quite simply, no. Conference calls are still, by and large, the way teams communicate. They offer a way to connect and collaborate across distance and different types of technology. They let us hear each other’s voices. Conference calls don’t have to die; they just have to work—and sound—much better.

Certainly, making conferencing easier is part of the solution. At Voxeet, we’ve built a solution that simplifies conference calls down the essentials. You can start your call with…

    Why pCell is poised to revolutionize wireless data — and what that means for your conferencing

Why pCell is poised to revolutionize wireless data — and what that means for your conferencing

There’s been a lot of buzz about pCell, a revolutionary new technology that promises to deliver near perfect reception to all smartphone users 24/7. I always greet news about “revolutionary technologies” with a healthy dose of skepticism, both because the media is prone to hyperbole and because truly revolutionary technologies come along once in a blue moon.

The more I read about pCell, however, the more I become convinced that it actually could be a game changer. The technology works by harnessing signal interference — that annoying problem that renders your smartphone useless at cocktail parties and other crowded spaces…

How WebRTC changes the game for mobile apps

A little more than a year ago, my team at Voxeet set out on a quest to create a mobile app that reimagined communication and the conference call for the 21st century. To do so, we needed to banish the familiar features of conference calls today — walkie-talkie static, an opaque interface that obscures who’s talking when, an inability to travel from one device to the next — and introduce modern, mobile-optimized and 3D-immersive-sound features in their place. To do that to its maximum potential, we needed WebRTC.

WebRTC is a free, open project built from the ground up made…

Introducing Google Integration (plus some other cool stuff)

Sure, Voxeet already makes it pretty easy to sign in and set up your account. But when have we ever settled for pretty easy (or pretty clear, or pretty good)? Introducing our latest improvements, designed to make accessing your account and adding contacts even easier: Voxeet has gone Google. That means you can now log in to Voxeet using Google, plus search and import contacts directly from your Google account to your Voxeet contact list.

Additionally, our new version serves up a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements that make it easier than ever to connect from any device,…
