Java-Free Meetings that Start Faster

UPDATE: ReadyTalk has recently re-released the web meeting plugin using a new technology due to some changes the Chrome and Firefox browsers have made. For more information on what happened please see the blog post. The user experience has also slightly changed - check out the post below for some screenshots and explanation of the updated workflow. 

Today we launched the ReadyTalk web meeting plugin, designed for starting meetings as a chairperson or being promoted to a co-presenter. The plugin removes the dependency on Java's browser plugin, so you will no longer be prompted to update or install Java.

Plus, meetings start 10 seconds faster when using the web meeting plugin (vs. using Java). With all that extra time on hand why not try some of these everyday life hacks!

The Details

The plugin is compatible with the major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari) and Windows and Mac. The one-time download doesn't require administrator rights and

wintakes just 15 seconds to install.  There’s no need to wait until meeting time, you can install it ahead of time from our website.

Co-presenters will be prompted to install the plugin when then are promoted to co-presenter. To ensure that meetings continue smoothly (and without delay), we recommend co-presenters also install the plugin ahead of time when possible.

A few things to note:

Updated Workflow

Due to the updates the Chrome and Firefox browsers recently made there is a slightly new workflow to launch ReadyTalk from these browsers using the web meeting plugin. See below for screenshots and instructions. 

The Chrome and Firefox browsers now require you to launch the application through the dialog box below. We highly recommend you click the 'remember my choice' check box so you never have to deal with this dialog again.  To launch your ReadyTalk meeting simply click the 'Launch Application' button in Chrome or the 'OK' button in Firefox and the rest is taken care of for you.

Other Ways to Start ReadyTalk Meetings

We spend a lot of time figuring out ways to improve the meeting experience. Technology should be the easiest part. Our customers have shared that they want to start meetings from the platforms they are already using, so, in addition to the web meeting plugin, we’ve made it easy to schedule and start meetings from:

We’d love your feedback on the plugin and any anecdotes on how it may have improved your meeting experience.
