Have you ever been stuck on hold waiting for the organizer of a conference call to join? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do something or communicate with others also waiting on the call to start? Fear not, as ÜberConference makes the waiting more bearable and even productive by our latest feature, ÜberChat.
When viewing a call in ÜberConference, you can see who is going to be in the call and who is waiting before the conference starts. You can click around on user profiles to pass the time or learn more about the people on the call. And now you can send instant messages, like “Hey, when the heck is this call going to start?!?” to others in the call that are viewing the conference online. Its also really helpful once the call starts as well, so now you can share links, paste in a simple agenda, or pose questions to the other people viewing the ÜberConference without interrupting the flow of the call. Currently ÜberChat is only available during the call, but we will soon have a way to view the chat record through the call summary. To access this feature while in anÜberConference, click the chat button along the bottom control panel.
