FYI for SG16 telecon attendees.  This won't impact our next telecon, but for anyone using the desktop client, you may get prompted to upgrade for telecons after that one.

Desktop App Version Upgrade
(Linux | Mac | Windows)



As you may recall, the older BlueJeans Desktop versions (versions 1.x) are reaching end of life. Your organization has been waiting to upgrade until the app supported Linux (in addition to Windows and Mac). We're pleased to share the BlueJeans Desktop App for Linux is now available.


On December 6th, your users will be prompted to upgrade to the Desktop App (version 2). 


With 99% of our customers already enabled for BlueJeans App v2, we are seeing higher end user satisfaction scores than ever before! We believe this will be a very positive experience for you.
