New feature for UberConference Pro users! Now you can set up aconference call and not even be on the call. It’s great for times when the boss is running late or when the organizer may not be in the meeting.  We call this new feature “Start Without Me”.

Here’s how:
1. Click the “New Conference” button in the upper right corner of your “My Conferences” page.

2. You’ll see the new feature “Start Without Me” in the scheduling screen pop-up.  Simply click the check-mark area next to the feature to ensure others can join the conference before you get there.

3. Click on the “Create Conference” button. Now others can join your conference with or without you.

This feature is only available to Pro users. Sign up for your pro account and use this feature now.

Great news for Google Apps users!  Now you can get ÜberConferencein the Google Apps marketplace, and run it right from your business Gmail or other Google Apps.  Once you add the ÜberConference App, everyone in your Google Apps domain will be able to see ÜberConference in the “More” drop down list of the menu bar.  Just click to log into ÜberConference whenever you need it.

For those that don’t already have an UberConference account, a new one will be created with the user’s Google Apps email.  Gmail contacts will also be automatically synched, making it even easier to get started with UberConference.   When you create conferences you can just type in a few letters to bring up matching names from your contacts and click to add them to the call. UberConference takes care of sending out all the conference info to the email addresses and phone numbers you have saved for your contacts, and authenticates them based on their phone numbers so they can join your conference without entering PINs.

We have had a lot of interest around people wanting to use UberConference in more ways across their businesses and organizations, and think the new Google Apps feature is a first step in doing more in this area.  More enterprise features are coming soon.

We praise creativity here at UberConference, and can’t wait to see what each startup comes up with.

The big trend at this year’s CES is ‘mobile first’. The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) says this is the largest app event in the world! And our newly released mobile apps for iOS and Android are a part of it.

Check us out on the Wall of Apps, right in front of the North Hall:

And a close up of our display:

This is Brian Page from Vice and he is awesome! He’s working with the Wall of Apps folks and also incredibly helpful demoing UberConference to folks who come asking about our conference call mobile app. What a guy!

Come find our team (or tweet us if you prefer) @UberConference to let us know you’ve been by.

He’s a game changer and an innovator…and all over the place. Ben Huh, the guy behind LOL catsand many other internet crazes is a busy man. He says he takes at least 2 or 3 conference calls a day…and hates them! Major downer for a guy having so much fun at work. We discussed what’s wrong with the current tech and how apps like ours at UberConference (and a few others) are changing that.
