Here’s a summary of what the video explains…

Release of the Google hangouts replacement for WebinarJam will happen in three phases:

  1. Stroll – coming up in just a couple of weeks
  2. Sprint
  3. Soar

 

 

WebinarJam actually works in two parts:

  1. The Room
  2. The Broadcast

Google Hangouts is the current Room. Google Hangouts on Air is the current broadcast.

During the Stroll, the JamSession Room replaces Google Hangouts Room. Youtube Live replaces Hangouts on Air.

If you wish to continue using Hangouts, you can.

  • BETA testing of the JamSession Room (everyone is a beta tester!)
  • Takes place in current interface
  • It is 100% FREE and OPTIONAL
  • Connects to Youtube Live Broadcast via direct protocol
  • Will have advanced features in later stages

Key Sprint Points:

  1. Exciting stuff! I was already excited to get away from hangouts, but now I can’t wait to hear more about the Sprint and Soar features! Great stuff guys!

  2. I, for one, cannot wait to take the new room for a spin! My current webinars are running perfectly, but I always love new and better.

  3. This sounds exciting… look forward to seeing the new stuff roll out! Any updates on the KARTA roll out?? When will that be available for us?

    • Hi Robert! We can’t answer specifics about attendee limits because it will be dependent on the broadcast option you ultimately choose during the “Soar” phase.

  4. wow guys this is really exciting…looking forward to the sprint and soar options
    lets hope its going to be a once payment during launch!!

  5. What will happened to people that purschased WebinarJAM + EverWebinar LifeTime Membership?? Hopefully you guys will honore your words by letting me access to what I already bought… this is one of the reasons why I didn’t go for GoToWebinar, cuz I trust you!

    • Be sure to watch the video or skim the summary below it. I think you’ll be pleased with what you see!

  6. Great news! I look forward to it! 🙂 But I hope that frontend localization to Czech (and other languages) will remain. It’s most important feature for using WebinarJam on non-english markets.
