Today the updated version of the app has been rolled out in the Blackberry App World. New features have come into play and it seems like Blackberry really wants to make this one big. Check out what you get with the Mobile Conferencing App this time. Read about all the features in detail.

Convert an Email to a Conference Invitation

You can shift an email conversation to a conference bridge within a few seconds with this updated version of App. Go to “Schedule Conference” Menu option on any email to create a calendar invitation with the same person on the email thread, subject, and message notes.

Hook up with 10 Conference Profiles

If you host a lot of conference calls as well as attend the same, on a variety of Conference Bridge, then this update has some sort of solution for you. Now you will be able to store to 10 conference profiles which will help you out to manage your different conference bridges.

Conference Call Detection now more “intelligent”

The Conference Call Detection worked pretty nicely. This feature got some tweaks as the algorithm of the feature has improved. The “intelligence” of the conference call detection has increased. Now it will have more description formats and language constructs.

Hide Moderator Code

While scheduling conference calls from your desktop, you can now send only the participant information and keep your moderator or host code hidden. For meeting invites that only include participant information, the BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing app will automatically search for matching bridge information in your conference profile(s). If it finds a match, it will dial you in with the moderator code from the corresponding profile and will connect the conference as soon as you press “Join Now”.
