Citrix’s GoToMeeting Review

GoToMeeting provides an easy way to set up online presentations, conference calls, and project collaborations. An amazing feature is that you can switch presenters during the meeting. Thus, a company can present a product from their desktop to different locations at the same time, saving on their costs and time.

Let’s have a close look at its features:

HD Video Conferencing

This video conferencing client is available on desktop, mobile as well as wearable devices. The participants can share up to 6 high-resolution video conferencing streams. HDFaces also allows you customizable layouts to adapt to numerous monitor and projector configurations.


Commendable meeting experience

With GoToMeeting, you’ll enjoy a hassle-free online meeting experience. It integrates VoIP, telephone and HD video to offer a professional web conference. It comes with the simplest user interface along with a straightforward scheduler.

GoToMeeting has received rave reviews for providing commendable meeting experience to the participants.


Optimized for businesses


Citrix’s web conference service aims to provide the best experiences to attend meetings. You can control settings to other languages and can also select toll-free numbers for specific countries. This way, you’ll be able to call for free in other countries. Participants just need to enter the meeting ID code to join the meeting. When they join by phone, they need an audio PIN.

Secure Meetings

With GoToMeeting, you don’t have to worry about the safety of your meetings. It uses standard 128-bit encryption to protect meetings in progress while the recorded ones are safely stored within the same server.


Multi-user accounts


With an Administration Center, you can deploy and manage multiple GoToMeeting organizers. You can sign up organizers, manage and control their online meeting and webinar access, and you can also generate reports about meeting usage.
