In this episode of the My TechDecisions Podcast, Associate Editor Zachary Comeau speaks with Mark Strassman, senior vice president of LogMeIn’s unified communications and collaboration unit, about how our videoconferencing habits have changed.
By now, your organization’s employees and your internal IT department should be accustomed to remote or hybrid work and videoconferencing technology. Virtual meetings are now a part of our daily lives, and they will continue to be as organizations increasingly adopt hybrid work strategies and become more flexible about where and when people get their work done.
Strassman, who oversees products like GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, spoke about how our videoconferencing habits have changed dramatically because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to remote work.
According to the company’s data from its GoToMeeting platform, the method, size and timing of video meetings changed noticeably this year.
The percentage of meetings taken on a mobile device grew from 5% last year to 12% this year, weekend meetings grew from 3% last year to 8.5% this year, meetings and webinars both nearly doubled in average size, and the percentage of people switching on their video feed during meetings grew by four times.
