Glance goes mobile


Guests using mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, and Blackberrys can now view your sessions. Virtually any device with a browser can join a Glance session!


Mobile guests join the same way desktop users do—just open up a browser and type in your Glance Address. For example:


Instant Join


With Instant Join your guests join your screen share sessions instantaneously and with the fewest clicks. 


To choose instant join:


  1. Single-click the icon in the notifications area of your desktop and then choose Settings.
