SAN FRANCISCO, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuze Box, the visual collaboration powerhouse providing mobile meetings and online collaboration solutions, today announced the release of their best-in-class meeting software, Fuze Meeting, for Android mobile devices - thus introducing the only web conferencing software with a dedicated app on Android devices. Joining its sister apps on the iPhone and BlackBerry™, Fuze Meeting for Android allows users to collaborate on various forms of content including videos and office documents from anywhere in the world. The Fuze Meeting Android app and device specific download instructions are now available on the Fuze Meeting Android page.

Features in this attendee-only release include:

  • View desktop sharing - Android attendees gain an unprecedented ability to view meeting participants' desktops, files and presentations on-the-go and in real-time, while synced with the meeting presenter. The viewing quality and precise synchronization set the standard for visual collaboration among smartphones.
  • Actively participate in media collaboration – Attendees are able to watch and listen to high-quality video and audio – start, stop and pause with the same level of functionality as meeting hosts have.  
  • Contribute content with presenter functionality – Once the meeting host designates an Android attendee as a presenter, users can share video or image files by uploading directly from their device.

"As a company, we saw it as a vital move to develop a version of our software to seamlessly allow global Android users, the ability to participate in meetings with the same ease and proficiency as they have become accustomed to with our web experience.  We believe that being the first to market with an Android based collaboration app leaves us well poised as the leader in online meeting space."
