  • Easy to use for those who have little technical expertise, especially older participants.
  • Support team is helpful and responsive when we have issues or questions.
  • Active new feature development has met many of our needs over time.
  • Uptime and stability have been good overall and have improved over time.
  • Recently, we've had issues where changing the view format (speaker only, gallery view, speaker plus participants) has caused the interface to freeze in an intermediate state.
  • Our current subscription level only allows for one admin login, which makes it challenging when we want to, for instance, delegate screen sharing to another user but block all other users from sharing (which older inexperienced users sometimes do accidentally).
  • Inexperienced users have some trouble keeping themselves on mute while others are speaking; would be nice to give admins more control in addition to having to hover over the mute button for each participant.
  • Would be ideal to have better support for our specific use case when running classes: we have a session leader (other than the admin) and participants are recognized by the leader by raising their hands in order, after which they unmute themselves and offer comments; our current process is workable but not ideal.

Breakout Rooms were Great!

  • I like the recording aspect. With one click I can record the main room and every other breakout room will record as well.
  • We were always getting kicked out of the meetings what seemed like for no reason. It was really frustrating! We would have to have everyone log off and log back on.

  • Ability to record meetings of inly a single person to use as training tools.
  • Mobile phone & calendar integration.
  • Hard to tell if this was an internal issue with our technology but the salesforce add-in caused problems.
  • Ability to choose default meetings numbers was counter-intuitive.
  • The inherent ability to customise the user experience is both a blessing and a curse depending upon the tech familiarity of users.
  • Showing my age but when used solely as a telephone conferencing tool a beep / signal that people have joined/left would be helpful.

  • 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?

  • High audio quality (w/ Dolby tech on).
  • Efficient background noise cancellation (w/ Dolby tech on).
  • Integration of the MS Office calendar.
  • The app sometimes got issues with handling various configs of I/O devices. Usually, it leads to an echo like when other participant's mic captures your voice. Although, it may be due to some random conflicts with OS (I'm using Windows and with desktop app).
  • Monochromatic chat box - why not use regular colours like in MS Teams / Slack?

  • Spatial audio: BlueJeans is the only video meeting solution I have used with spatial audio technology. This technology suppresses background noise during meetings and ensures the voice of every meeting participant is clear and audible.
  • Universal accessibility: BlueJeans presents me with a variety of ways to join and initiate video meetings. At the moment, I can join BlueJeans through my mobile phone (my preferred access medium), as a native application on my computer, or from my computer browser.
  • Meeting security: BlueJeans provides me with multiple protocols to ensure that my meetings are always safe, and unauthorized people cannot join my meetings without permissions.
  • BlueJeans is not the most popular video meeting program out there. On a lot of occasions, when I have needed to communicate with external collaborators, we’ve had to spend extra time teaching them how to use BlueJeans.
  • The lack of a live polling feature on BlueJeans meetings. Although, the feature is available on BlueJeans events.

  • 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.
