As teams become more distributed, communication gets more complicated. Here’s where we dig into the latest conferencing innovations and collaboration strategies to help you get the most from your mobile team.
Voxeet, an audio conference service, announced today that it took in a $1.5 million round, led by LDV Partners.
The startup also announced the international launch of Voxeet 4.0, a service that builds on the startup’s “3D TrueVoice surround sound” technology to offer what the company is calling “the richest audio available with powerful collaboration features.”
“Conference calling is a massive market opportunity in Asia,” said LDV Partners’ Wayne Zhang. “Voxeet has built the best audio optimization technology and is in a position to do very well in countries like China, where bandwidth challenges are commonplace.”
Voxeet is one of those applications that almost certainly will go viral once it gets a few users to tell their friends, who tell their friends, and so on.
Voxeet, a startup whose mission is to eradicate conference calls as we know them and replace them with clear, clean voice transmissions on any device, is expanding its network globally.
The Sausalito, Calif.-based company, which on April 6 relaunched v4.0 of its free-to-use cloud app, told eWEEK that it turned on its international service the same day, utilizing data centers in Europe and Asia-Pacific in addition to its main center in Virginia.
At Voxeet, we’re all about anywhere access—joining a clear, productive Voxeet conference call from any device, anywhere in the world. And with the launch of Voxeet Web Conferencing, “anywhere” now includes any web browser.

Large, on-premise conferencing solutions can be useful for well-resourced companies with in-house IT teams, but companies without dedicated IT staff need something smaller and simpler. Cloud-based collaboration systems can help bridge this gap.
Next week, San Francisco-based Voxeet launches the fourth iteration of its mobile and desktop-based audio conferencing system, designed to give companies an audio conferencing and collaboration system tailored to include mobile users.
Dustin Jordan, sales director at Canadian power equipment rental firm Trinity Power Tools, said the company has been using the system to pull around ten of its staffers into a daily audio ‘huddle.’
One big reason that we maintain home theaters instead of watching everything on mobile devices is sound quality. Getting big, room-filling sound—particularly 3D surround sound—tends to be a bit more than a typical smartphone can handle. That may not be the case much longer based on a new development from Voxeet, which brings 3D surround sound to a mobile workforce collaboration tool.
