- Easy to use and install on many devices and very intuitive. The GUI app is very friendly and you only have just the right amount of options you need to make the conference work: share screen, chat, control over your camera and mic. For the users, this is great since you don't have to spend a lot of time teaching them how to use BlueJeans.
- The compatibility with the videoconference codecs we have (Polycom, LifeSize, etc). There's no need for extra plug-ins. You just dial to the BlueJeans IP address and enter the meeting ID and passcode, and you're done.
- The recording option is excellent for the unlimited storage on the cloud and the option to locally download the recordings.
- The app 2.0 has some missing options, like the option to directly send an invite by entering the email address to add new people, and some problems, like a black screen for certain users. We understand that this is a new version and might have some bugs, but we hope you can fix it soon.
- It needs the ability for a moderator to share content like videos or record without the need of a BlueJeans user login.
- Some users are able to share videos with sound and some users are not. I guess that depends on the PC sound settings, but it would be nice to have a brief guide on how to share videos with sound.
The teams the currently uses BlueJeans the most are our Pristine Seas team and the Education team. For both, it provides that video sharing functionality that other services do not currently have.
- Customer service is great! A company may have a great product but if customer service is terrible, that company may lost customers. On the other hand, a company may have an ok product but the customer service is so exceptional, that it might not even matter what the product is. With BlueJeans, both the product and customer service are top quality!
- Our major selling point is that BlueJeans provides a way to seamlessly share videos remotely. No other platform we have tried has a way of doing this as well as BlueJeans.
- BlueJeans is also very flexible on the amount of people that may join a call. Customer service may provide options for even higher counts (150+) if needed.
- The BlueJeans analytics for each meeting are an important part for any company looking to have a transparent eco friendly approach. We often share how many miles, gas, etc. funds have been saved because the meeting was virtual instead of in person.
- Video sharing could be made better by allowing people to simply go through their presentation (Keynot/PowerPoint, etc.) without having to upload the video ahead of time (I believe BlueJeans is working on this).
- Providing an option to choose what join information to share with remote participants would also be great. Currently, every option is sent (joining from phone, mobile, and a videoconference unit). Most of the time, we are sending to participants who do not and will not be using a videoconference unit. I usually just delete that information from the message, but it would be easier (and one less step) if that could be an option.
- The ability to set global preferences on your account for things like "mute on entry" or "Don't show video" were a huge plus.
- Plug-in integration with Outlook and Slack was very well built
- Setting up reoccurring meetings within the app was a breeze
- From my perspective as a desktop engineer who packaged and deployed this app, it was fairly obvious that the PC devs knew what they were doing and the Mac app was a bit of an afterthought. It took me a good 2-3 months of escalating a ticket to finally get the dev team to properly package their app for mass deployment on the Mac side. Previous to my ongoing push, the app would only successfully install if a user were logged in versus being installed while the user were logged out like many other apps can be done via an MDM system.
- Audio and video quality were always an ongoing issue with BlueJeans. If more than 10 people were on a call, audio would cut in and out constantly. Video quality even in 1:1 calls was blurry/grainy.
- BlueJeans claimed to suppress auto-updates from their mass deployment webpage but I still found the package to always auto update anyways which wasn't necessarily a bad thing except for when a new version came out and I wasn't prepared for it, I would quickly have to adjust my deployment scope to exclude installing the now older version of BlueJeans over the newer version.
- High Quality video
- High Quality audio
- Low latency
- Excellent customer support
- Adding further API support for some systems
- Adding more features to the Admin Console web-interface
- Improving the mobile phone app for Apple users - adding more functionality.
- The Audio/Video quality is always good.
- We have not experienced any hosting server issues.
- It supports browser-based meetings. There's no requirement to install the full client.
- Pairing with room systems can be a bit convoluted.
- The event recording/conference start should be automatic.
- Recording meetings
- Screen sharing
- Sharing recordings with other users using the could
- Easy to use interface. It is very intuitive and much better than the competition I've seen (Century Link and Adobe Connect are much more difficult to learn)
- I don't want to download the plugin. It's much easier to use the browser version and takes less time to load the meeting. Consider making that option the default and not having a separate plugin that loads a new BlueJeans application. I find that unnecessary
- When in screen share, I would like a pointer/highlighter function. I currently rely on my mouse pointer but that can't highlight or draw text as far as I can tell
- Ease of use
- Easy to swap users/presenters
- Recording facility often stops working mid-way through.
- Sometimes it just doesn't load up.
- It doesn't like working on some types of screens, I.E. plasma screens sometimes have issues.
- Audio calls
- Video calls
- Easy access and connection
- Easier access for people outside the organization - that don't have the app, for example.
- Sometimes there are problems with connection, would be good to have some way to run an analysis and problem solving.
- Flexibility to accept connections from different tools (PC, mobile, etc.)
- Rather intuitive and user friendly application
- Integration with Outlook calendar
- Sometimes it's difficult to use when there are more than 2 participants and all are using different ways of connection/sharing the screen
- BlueJeans is used across the company.
- Especially by me and my Global team and by all the contractors that work with us to build new projects. We built the project in at least 15 countries: North & Central (USA and Mexico) America, South America (Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Peru) Europe (Italy, Spain, Greek), Africa(Morocco, Zambia, SouthAfrica), Australia and India, Australia).
- Each Project Team uses BJ, mainly locally but even globally because a lot of team members are located in different countries. The main issue is: when you are doing a call with persons from the company's offices, the quality of the connection is not good (or voice or video) and we are obliged to use to separate connection at the same time (one using the telephone and another one using a computer). If we use the connection staying at home the call quality of the call is good. Even the quality of the connection of the contractors is good. This issue started, 6 months ago. My ICT colleagues are still finding the solution.
- It uses a low band system that allows connecting people from the site who don't have good bandwidth (construction site, train, etc).
- It's easy to use. When you have a lot of new contractors each year is an important point.
- The director can mute people.
- It is included in the description of my open issue.
- When we have to do a call with a contractor (external person).
- When we have to do a call with colleagues for the open issue already described. This issue didn't exist 6 months ago.
- Screen Share: collaborate with people across different regions with ease.
- The mobile app is phenomenal, help is assisted while I am in transit.
- Admin has the ability to moderate the call with ease. Help mute disruptive folks on the call.
- Screen Scaling: this is one area that the app can improve. My only gripe is it doesn't do a very good job between various screen sizes. If someone shares a 32in screen and someone is seeing the same on a 24in monitor at the same time the streaming gets blotchy.
- Collaboration with people (calls across multiple regions).
- Planning an exercise (review of plans/PPT and timeline on a shared screen).
- Technical troubleshooting and remediations (helpdesk/support).
It can be an issue when there are more than 10+ people on the conference call - when they join in and drop off.
Integration with Office 365 will be good.
- The ability to show your screen to an audience is perfect and you don't have to be strong in IT to understand how to use this.
- Its simplicity.
- Easy to use with external customers and downloading the app is simple.
- BlueJeans video is only as good as the camera on the PC and we mostly use PC cameras for meetings.
- You can often hear people tapping their keys on a laptop during meetings.
- Great in hotels or even in the car by telephone - very portable
- Only takes a few seconds to set up a meeting especially if the others attending meetings have the app
- Easy to join, system punches in the access codes automatically, even if you dial in through phone
- Ability to control audio/video access
- All features of app would work as if you are dialed in through the app, even though you are dialed in through the land/cell line
- Works in China!!!
- The app automatically adjusts to the quality of bandwidth available to user to ensure optional quality of video and audio
- BlueJeans is great at making a meeting link and making it easy to invite people to meetings via email.
- BlueJeans is generally easy to use and has a relatively well-designed interface.
- I think BlueJeans is much like a lot of meeting applications that people have used before so the learning curve isn't bad.
- BlueJeans is among the longest lag-time for any virtual meeting software that I've used.
- I think the design and forward-facing parts of BlueJeans could be spiffed up and made to look a little more modern.
- I wasn't impressed with the glitchy calls we have been navigating, that we don't see on Skype for Business.
- Allows access from any device
- Gives users the option to record meetings
- Chrome plugin is available
- Occasionally see audio quality issues from users in other countries.
- Screen sharing causes high CPU usage with some users
- Some users can't connect when clicking the meeting link. This could be a permissions issue though.
- BlueJeans is extremely easy to use and is complemented by its feature set including an Outlook add-in and ability to record meetings.
- The recent addition of Dolby Digital audio has noticeably increased the audio quality of meetings.
- Customer service is phenomenal. Whether troubleshooting or testing a new BlueJeans feature, their support is extremely responsive and knowledgeable.
- Resolution is currently capped at 720p. We would like to see up to 1080p supported.
- Otherwise, it's hard to find cons...
- Stability of connection.
- Good app on mobile phone.
- Easy to connect directly.
