Made in India videoconferencing application, VideoMeet is introducing ’Backstage’ feature in its application. This feature integration in VideoMeet will make it the only virtual meeting application to have a Backstage platform that will allow users to wait in a safe mode before entering the meeting. Participants are made aware of their waiting time before given access to a virtual meeting.
The feature is accessible by the host, till his/her account remains valid. Host can customize their backstage platforms as per their own branding. This feature will find its most utility in personal interviews for corporate, viva sessions for school and college students, one-on-one interaction with patients etc.
