BlueJeans Meetings

Scheduling

BlueJeans for Google Calendar version 2.0.45

Google has updated their web calendar with a fresh look and new features. (Learn more about the details of this new release here.) To support this new version of the Google Calendar, BlueJeans has released Calendar Extension 2.0.45 to maintain the ease of scheduling and joining BlueJeans Meetings.

Generally available early November.

Outlook Windows Add-in 4.2

The newest version of the Outlook Add-in contains several bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Users will also now see an option to retrieve their Moderator code at the bottom of their invites.
