RingCentral Rapidly Expands Capabilities of RingCentral Video
RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG), a leading provider of global enterprise cloud communications, collaboration, video meetings, and contact center solutions, today announced a range of new video and team messaging capabilities to enhance online meetings and enable people to effectively communicate and collaborate from anywhere. In addition, as people continue to work from anywhere, the RingCentral mobile app is gaining significant momentum. It is the highest rated app in its category on Google Play with a rating of 4.6 and among the top ranking apps in its category on the Apple Store with a rating of 4.6*.
A select few new RingCentral Video capabilities include:
- Overlay: Enables users to keep audiences engaged during their virtual presentations by overlaying their video on top of the content on their screen, creating a “weather person” visual effect. Presenters can interact directly with the content by moving themselves around on the screen in order to guide the message and stay visually present throughout their journey. This helps the presenter hold the audience’s attention and allows the audience to keep an eye on the presenter while following the material being presented.
- Video virtual backgrounds: Along with static images, users can now upload video files as virtual backgrounds to have more fun during meetings and express themselves creatively while maintaining their privacy. Backgrounds such as a cozy fireplace or waves on the beach can be used to create an enjoyable virtual experience, and help users maintain a professional presence by hiding their physical backgrounds.
- Breakout Rooms: Meeting moderators can quickly split up participants into smaller groups for a side discussion or brainstorm during a video meeting. This feature can create an experience that is similar to an in-person group exercise for more interactive and intimate conversations. This capability will be available by the end of Q2 2021.
- Picture-in-picture: Allows meeting participants to multi-task within the RingCentral app during a meeting. Users can quickly reference conversations in team messaging through a separate window on their screen while participating in the live video meeting.
