Google’s entering new territory with its latest venture. Chromebox for Meetings promises to make teleconferences easier and more efficient. It’s expected to serve all business sizes and will cost only a fraction of popular teleconferencing platforms.
Chromebox for Meetings comes ready to handle a meeting capacity of a maximum 15 individuals, without the display unit. From computers to telephones, users can join their meetings using a number of ways.
Chromebox for Meetings runs the Chrome OS, of course, and is entering the U.S. market at a $999 price point. Its purpose is to bring a sense of simplicity, security and speed to teleconferences.
Participants are able to share their documents during the meetings, in addition to the fact that they will be able to hold meetings in high definition. Chromebox for Meetings also uses Google’s other line of applications, including Google+ Hangouts and Google Apps.
Companies such as Eventbrite, Gilt, oDesk and Woolworths have been testing Chromebox for Meetings. The teleconferencing solution is expected to be released in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the UK later this year.
