Lifesize®, a global innovator of video conferencing technology, is launching a phased beta program for its newly redesigned Lifesize app.

The app is a cloud-based collaboration platform that delivers exceptional high-definition audio, web and video conferencing.

The Lifesize app has been rearchitected to focus on an intuitive, effortless experience and now includes a new user interface (UI) and features like smart matching search and one-click calling to deliver easier, smarter and more flexible communication and collaboration.

“Collaboration delivers amazing results for businesses. It drives creativity, productivity and efficiency and should be simple and intuitive,” said Lifesize CEO Craig Malloy.

“So, as we redesigned and rebuilt the new Lifesize app from the ground up, we collaborated closely with customers and users.

“As a result, the new app delivers an effortless meeting experience that matches the ease of use people have grown accustomed to in their personal lives, but with enterprise functionality, reliability and security.

“After thousands of hours of research and testing with hundreds of customers, we believe we have thoughtfully designed an application that helps users work simply and effectively, to be more successful in their jobs, and drive strong outcomes for their businesses.

“We’re excited to get even more feedback from the beta program to help us further fine-tune and deliver the ultimate user experience.”

The first phase of the beta program will be invitation only. Lifesize will soon thereafter host an open beta.

The phased beta approach will allow the company to continue gathering real-world feedback to further refine the new app to better meet the needs of its rapidly evolving and growing customer base.

The new app has been refreshed to deliver an exceptional user experience through an intuitive, simple and modern UI.

It also offers enhanced flexibility with powerful moderator controls and permissions, and a consistent experience for participants and guests across the web app and desktop client.

Further key features of the new app include easy navigation, in-app tutorials, and easy meeting scheduling.
