Microsoft joins the connection party

January 21, 2010

The sharing and connection party started a long time ago with services like WebEx, GoToMeeting, and more recently Adobe Connect, DimDim and the like. I’m not sure when they released it, but it seems as though Microsoft have now joined the party with SharedView.

With SharedView, you can connect simultaneously with up to 15 people, and share your documents and screens. No voice facility exists within the (free) SharedView application but you can use other services such as Skype for voice.

You do need to download the free application to use it. You’ll also need a Windows Live ID (or your Microsoft Passport credentials) to start a session but not to join one started by someone else, as well as an internet connection.
