- Great voice - people can hear us clearly
- Great at giving presentations. It is easy to take over the screen and give your presentation.
- Easy to download and use the app on your phone and your PC
- I do not know of anything
- We hold Bible approximately 90 Bible fellowships a week using the platform. This includes meetings that span as many as 10 countries at a time. The size of the meetings can range from 10 to 300 people.
- We use BlueJeans for meetings among our managers and team leaders.
- We use it to present classes and seminars.
- One of the things that attracted us initially was that it allows for connections to be made to the meetings from a variety of devices, including telephones. We have some people who are not very technologically savvy so the ability to use a computer or not was important.
- The facility to record meeting and then make those recordings available has significantly increased our ability to provide a library of content to our users.
- Users like the flexibility of being able to change their own screen display from speaker view to gallery view and so forth.
- We find that BlueJeans makes interaction between the different participants in the meeting very simple and easy.
- Since we have people participating from different countries, the availability access numbers in many countries is a definite plus.
- The availability to assign as many Meeting IDs as needed, including multiple meetings happening simultaneously is crucial for our purposes.
- The option of the break-out rooms has been very useful. At times we want to have a meeting with everyone, then break people out for discussions or group exercises and that works very well in BlueJeans.
- Currently, although the Meeting Moderator can mute the participants' microphones globally, the user has the option to turn their own mic back on. That makes sense for interactive meetings, but is terrible for when you're trying to make a presentation without interruption. It also makes it virtually impossible to record a presentation for later use without interruptions. There should be a setting which allows the moderator to turn off everyone else's microphones and over which they have no control until it's restored to them. Another option would be to have a separate product or setting designed for webinars or other types of meetings where you want to present material without interruption.
- BlueJeans is terrible at being able to play video for the meeting participants. Yes, you can upload video to BlueJeans, have them convert it and then be able to use it, but that requires that the person doing the presenting have access to the complete back-end of the account. It's time-consuming and a bad idea from a security standpoint. The new "play video with audio" feature helps, but it's glitchy. Sometimes it won't allow you to hide the controls of the presenter from view of the users. There needs to be a way to natively play video from within the app. (Your competitors have this.)
- There's a similar problem with playing live music over BlueJeans. I assume that because it was originally designed for business meetings, an environment where you want the audio to "hunt" for the strongest sound - presumably the voice of the person speaking that you want to be heard. However, in practice, if you try to have someone play a guitar and sing (for example), sometimes it suppresses the instrument and sometimes it suppresses the vocals as it tries to determine which of these two competing things to prioritize. The recent change to make it possible to turn off the background noise suppression on a meeting by meeting basis is a good step, but we still find it doesn't work very well.
- There's currently no good way to play an audio recording for participants. (This is similar to the video problem.) If you do it as a screen share of a media app playing the audio, the sound levels are very low and sometimes muddy. You can "fake the system into doing it" by converting the audio file to a video and uploading the video, but why should we have to go to all of that effort just to play an audio clip?
- Solid platform.
- Many features helpful for business collaboration.
- Virtual backgrounds.
- Recurring meeting scheduling.
- Integration with project management tools (Trello, Ora, etc.).
- More virtual backgrounds for situational diversity.
- Easier edits of recurring meeting series, specifically changing dates and/or frequency.
- Excellent recordings.
- Syncs well with calendars.
- Moderating meetings is easy to do.
- Ease of use for persons who don't have the App downloaded.
- When you change a meeting code, it should only be for that meeting and not all meetings previously set.
- Screen sharing.
- For clients not used to BlueJeans (and only use it to be in a meeting with me once or twice), it would be helpful if there could be a kickstart pop-up where the program checks whether camera and microphone settings are okay - sometimes I lose time with this because the newbie doesn't know how to start up or where to find these settings, etc.
- My use of BlueJeans is pretty straightforward. I remember getting e-mails that looked quite complicated about features I don't know if I use them or not. This left me unsure about whether or not I needed to take action.
- Conduct 1-2-1 and group coaching sessions;
- Run Director's meetings;
- Chair Round Table CPD event for other coaches in my extended network.
- Sound quality is good - valued by clients who are hard of hearing.
- Breakout rooms are very easy to set up.
- The user interface is intuitive and quick to learn.
- The recording and download recording feature easy to use and reliable.
- I would like to be able to save a group of invitees under a single name to make re-booking easier.
- Audio/Visual: quality and reliability
- Usability in general
- User interface is clear and simple.
- Blurring: Only thing that is not working properly (when in use, the picture is really unclear).
1. Connecting via browser (visitors).
2. Sharing screen.
3. Usage with Outlook (calendar).
4. Reliability (zero problems so far).
I have used Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting, and Google and BlueJeans offers the best reliability, audio/visual- quality, the easiest way to use screen sharing (with the possibility to draw on-line), and break-out rooms are easy to use. Also the possibility to modify the meeting itself with your own background, etc. is really nicely handled by BlueJeans.
- It allows mer to meet with my patients for weekly appointments
- The scheduling helps keep me organized
- I really wish there was a waiting room because unless I lock the meeting, my next patient has occasionally entered the previous patient's session.
- Screen recording
- Easily send a link to clients to join from their browsers.
- Good quality recording
- A little confusing to setup if you look at the advanced features.
- Joining from mobile phones isn't easy you need to download an app.
- Adjusting group meeting settings for different scenarios is a bit confusing.
The app also is efficient when using resources, so it works great.
- Multiple participants.
- When need to jump into a quick meeting.
- Screen sharing sessions.
- A secure platform that IT / IT Security professionals are confident in.
- An excellent breakout room facility.
- A stable platform.
- One improvement would be the ability to broadcast messages to people in the breakout rooms; a feature that some other platforms have.
For people using webcams (mirrored devices) for presenting, the ability to not mirror would be useful. For example, In the past I have wanted to stand in front of a physical Flipchart stand and write stuff up, but am unable to do this because the test appears backwards on the screen. Again, some other platforms already have this functionality.
Breakout rooms are a mission critical function for online training, so any further modifications in this area will be highly beneficial. Things like the ability to broadcast messages to the participants, give additional time-checks and warnings about when they will close.
- Easy to use
- The interface is clean, uncluttered
- High quality
- Some great personalization features
- Integration with iMac calendar; now it is only Outlook and Google
- First choice for participants is to join with a browser, not client, as it is today
- Quality of recorded content was not great
- Delivered training online
- Delivered audits online
- Maximum of 8 participants
- Records all meetings and provides a link to share.
- The Technical Support staff is second to none! Always available to assist users with connection issues. They are able to see their system and help to correct and create a better experience.
- Wish there was an easier way to search through a history of recordings.
- Recent updates to the BlueJeans system have caused some Polycom issues.
Mostly sales and technical teams use this application. It saves a lot of time and travel expenses.
- Very good video and audio quality with limited access to internet.
- Screen sharing with limited access to internet.
- Security. It provides enough security to share confidential documents.
- Whiteboard presentation.
- There is no options to change background.
- Polls. It doesn't have any features for polling or voting.
Important decisions are taken considering that we are implementing a new ERP system.
During this lockdown period BlueJeans [Meetings] became fundamental for the sales and internal project.
We are implementing a new ERP completely without people presence. We have several meeting every day with more then 10 people to each meeting.
This without connection problem. In addition this system works perfectly with several platform.
In our organization there are no less appropriate scenario.
The decisions are more fast then before.
- Content Delivery
- Room and Participant Management
- Windows flexibility with device integration
- 323 Connectivity (We use Poly Infrastructure for bridging)
- Recording ease
- Multimedia Delivery is challenging
- Scheduling limitations for multiple instances. (Erratic schedules)
- Cost effective tool
- Simple to utilize
- Easy to integrate to Outlook environment
- Have difficulty with the 'named user' licensing; each of our users are low volume.
- Have had issues with initial setup by user (obtaining license, password process).
- The ROOMS feature needs more explanation or case studies - could be useful but 'how'?
- BlueJeans has the ability to preload video with their CDN to help alleviate streaming issues from sharing on a desktop in a video conference.
- I would like the option NOT to have everyone muted if I'm playing a video. Let me make that choice.
- Easy scheduling
- Audio generally good, particularly on 1:1 settings.
- Interface simple and easy to use.
- In group meetings, the organizer photo is fixed on the bottom, often covering a participant's video and preventing you from controlling their mute button— frustrating.
- Audio with multiple participants is sometimes problematic, not sure if this is connection/bandwidth with a particular participant or not.
- Grow network effect of BlueJeans. Most people aren't aware of it and you will encounter "first-time user" challenges sometimes.
- Good cross-platform usability
- Breakout rooms are seamless and don't "break" as with competing products
- Uploads for videos
- Whiteboard function rather limited
- Not everyone has access to BlueJeans in a corporate environment
- Extremely large download for initial connection - people are always five minutes late
- Audio is always excellent.
- Time lag does not happen.
- Verizon merged with BlueJeans [which] is a big marketing chance delivering confidence.
- Our customers like this application in U.S.
- Menu is not diversified comparing with Zoom.
- Scheduling is not convenient. Scheduling is not noticeable which is the most important function.
- Sometimes this does not work with Japanese colleagues and U.S. customers.
- [I wish] scheduled events popped up automatically on the PC screen.
"The issue of Bluejean" is less well-known among potential customers. More importantly, customers are confused with Verizon and Bluejean. Customers confusion is always a huge hick-up from sales and marketing perspectives. Now, if customers are not confused, Bluejean needs to beat Zoom's positioning as a #1 brand for video con call. COVID is the chance to beat Zoom. After COVID, the positioning of Zoom will be solid which is similar to Hertz and Avis.. The position does not change at all.
