What do you like best?

I like that it is easy to designate moderators and presenters, who are the only people who will be seen in the event. You are able to send separate registration and invitation links to moderators, presenters, and attendees to keep things separate. By separating moderators and presenters (you choose which of these can be seen or unseen by attendees during the event) and attendees (unseen by one another during the event), you are able to minimize the risk of interruption or the imposition of inappropriate content. For added protection in this regard, you can also select whether the chat function is available to attendees. Additionally, you can make it possible for an attendee to raise his or her hand in order to request to be made into a presenter mid-event, allowing you to expand the conversation if necessary.

Before an event begins, all moderators and presenters are able to converse with one another in a sort of staging area, which makes it very easy to explain features and make sure everyone is on the same page immediately prior to the event. Once everything is set, you simply click a button to make the discussion go live. After the event is finished, the moderators and presenters are returned to the staging area (great for sharing impressions). If you choose to have the event recorded, the recording is accessible on your BlueJeans account page right away. And attendee info is emailed to you automatically soon after the event finishes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish it were possible to send a clickable link to event attendees, even when the chat function is turned off. You can send messages through announcements, but links there are not clickable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have found that BlueJeans Events is an extremely useful tool for hosting virtual talks and panel discussions. It is easy to use and has all the features I need to host a successful, interactive event. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The threat of having events interrupted is real and I needed a way to control the book talks I run. BlueJeans allows me to designate presenters and filter questions before they go public. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a student, I enjoy BlueJeans Events because it is an effective tool for keeping virtual classes interactive by using features such as the Polls and Q&A widgets.

As someone who holds weekly industry presentations for my peers, BlueJeans Events gives me tools that make it easy for presenters to communicate uninterrupted, take questions, and gives us access to other useful tools and information such as attendee lists. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As a student, I have been frustrated with watching recordings of BlueJeans Events. Trying to skip around or pause the video sometimes causes the audio and video to become out of sync, and the page has to be reloaded.

There are some minor inconveniences associated with the Presenting platform. For example, although my guests can share their screen, they have to send me mp4 files in advance of videos embedded in their presentations because the platform does not allow guests to share video. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When considering BlueJeans Events there is a trade off. I have used other platforms briefly, and my first impression is that BlueJeans Events is better looking and easier to us. It may be more functional as well, although perhaps I have not used other platforms extensively enough to know. If I had to choose between Zoom, Teams, and BlueJeans Events and all platforms were free, I would pick BlueJeans Events. Because Georgia Tech provides students and faculty with BlueJeans Events, I am unable to accurately answer questions related to the cost/price and the return of investment into the service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BlueJeans Events allows for a one-way stream of the presentation which prevents interruptions from attendees who forget to turn off their microphone or whatnot. At the same time, it provides several methods for attendees to communicate with presenters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The solution is very easy for my customers to access even if they have never used Bluejeans before. Bluejeans is super easy to log into and does not require the end user to download any additional software. It was such an easy solution to use for business that I figured I would try it on my family by hosting our Olson 2020 COVID Christmas via Bluejeans. I have relatives who are in their later stages of life that had no problem getting signed into the solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish Bluejeans was more well known. When I tell customers that I am sending them a Bluejeans invite, most of them have no idea what I am talking about. However, everyone knows what a webinar and Zoom meetings are. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company is seeing more customers daily because of BlueJeans. I am also able to cover a larger geographic area with customers now since I do not have to be physically in front of them all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The sound quality and stability even with events with lot's of people. Integration with other tools like slack and google calendar that make alerts very easy so it's very hard to miss a meeting. The events work really well. The quality of sound is very good. It supports lot's of people at the same time. It has been a great tool to keep communication flowing while pandemic happens. With this tool that we already used a lot we were able to move from the office to home with no disruption at all from one day to the other. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

it could have a way to share questions and get people to speak when the moderator gives permission. I would like to see more than 9 people like Zoom allows to. I would like to be be able to split rooms in several so we can easily support workshops and still be able to keep chat between the different rooms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Bluejeans helps a lot of communication in big corporations. It's easy and simple to have big distributed teams having live broadcast events.

What do you like best?

A highly stable and resilient cross-platform SAS video conferencing solution. Suitable for videoconferencing (Meetings) up to 150 people and webinars (Events) up to 20,000 people. Encoding is fluid whatever the h.323 platform, computers (Mac OS, Windows and Linux) or mobile devices (iOS, android). Integration on your own web page or live facebook is particularly easy. The administration of the backoffice is very user-friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Beyond pedagogical actions, Events allows us to ensure the sustainability of democratic life by allowing elected officials to continue to sit in deliberative assemblies.

What do you like best?

Since the pandemic, we've shifted our model to engage with stakeholders virtually and have been leveraging the primetime / BlueJeans events platform to host both small group private sessions and full public webinars. The interface is really easy to use and allows videos to be played easily within it. We've been really impressed with the quality of experience in terms of how our events team leverages this on the back-end and the ease of taking questions and providing an interactive experience for attendees. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One element we have not yet investigated fully is how to leverage virtual backgrounds for the event itself - as obviously many presenters are joining sessions from home. Integrating more specific audio capabilities to filter out dogs, kids etc might be helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Major events support - and small group sessions. It's allowed us to continue to have an engagement model even though we have not been able to hold media and analyst roundtable sessions at in person events for example. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My only dislike is the dial in number produced as part of the invite defaults to US and there doesn't appear to be a way to change this on the events platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we have had to change the way we manage our partner meetings, which have moved from physical to virtual meetings. Benefit wise it has reduced the cost of hosting and attending such meetings but has also allowed us to have more frequent meetings due to the ease of running these, it has also significantly improved the attendance of such meetings enabling us to be far more engaged with partners.

An easy platform to navigate if you have used bluejeans before

looks like a very professional event

Would be fantastic if it was integrated with the main BlueJeans meeting platform., that would add a lot of value to people's use and get them to utilise the correct product as opposed to just having large meetings on BlueJeans meetings Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

would be great to have the captions option to increase accessibility for people with hearing impairments

Not always evident if the participants cal already see you or not

Didn't know bluejeans primetime changed the name to bluejeans events, this wasn't well publicised

Maybe should assist hosts in setting up their environment to look more professional

Not everyone in my organisation has access to Bluejeans events and the capacity of bluejeans meetings is not large

I don't think enough people are aware of the existence of this product, hence why a lot of large meetings turn into everyone listening to someone typing.

more marketing is required and a better integration with the main bluejeans to draw people to use "events".

The black and red background (on the screenshot) that is being used by GSMA should have been advises against by the Bluejeans set-up team as "un-inviting" Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It has great connectivity and ease of use with all the integrations and actually cares about security. We've used half a dozen platforms to communicate with our offices overseas where bandwidth is much lower and Bluejeans by far has the most reliable connectivity. From an administrative perspective its super easy to set up new users or automate the process, it also has great analytics to track usage by person/department etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The events had a bit of a learning curve to set up and host a large scale event with multiple presenters. Bluejeans is not as mainstream as some of the others (zoom, gotomeeting) so a lot of external participants complain about having to download "another meeting app" however, there are settings to help with this and default attendees to browser which I highly recommend. They also recently switched to a reseller type model which I don't care for and much prefer doing business directly with Bluejeans. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend purchasing bluejeans if you are looking for a collaborate suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Company all-hands meetings and customer facing product webinars/training, the greatest benefits of BlueJeans is the one click scheduling with all the calendar and communication integrations as well as the ability to highlight parts of the meeting as its taking place with notes etc. We also pair this with the bluejeans rooms at each of our locations which has turned our conference rooms into a super conducive way to connect with teams anywhere in the world.

What do you like best?

Is easy for attendes to join event, they can join using their web browser or using their mobile through the BlueJeans Events app. I don´t have to worry about attendes using their microphone or turning on their cameras as presenter and moderators have their own joinning link. One feature I love the most is that I can have simultaneous events and I can broadcast the events to Facebook Live or a website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Our license is 200 seats and they charge $5 for each seat you go above the 200, there´s no limit for how many attendes can join during the event. You can enable registration to have a control of the number of attendes. You can share videos that have been previouly preloaded but you cannot share videos directly from your computer, I would like to have both options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Is convenient and you can run multiple webinars at the same time with one single user license. For the attendes there´s no need to donwload any app as they can join using their web browser. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have had a large request of webinars during the pandemic and having BlueJeans Events, have let us to run multiple webinars at the same time. We have been able to expand our attendes capacity to 200 attendes and also been able to reach a large audience through Facebook Live. When you have BlueJeans Events you don´t need to have a connector for your H.323 onsite equipment, this has let us keep using our current legacy H.323 videoconferencing equipment.

What do you like best?

BlueJeans Events has a great interface for moderators. It is straightforward when you know where to look. I also like that BlueJeans is always available, and will get you the answer you need most of the time. I like the ease of accessing scheduled events through the online website. It is very easy to use to look at upcoming events, manage registrations, and schedule new events. I'd say that this platform is pretty well developed, too. Though it does take time to get to know all the features of the Events Platform and it can be very overwhelming for new users, the platform would not be what it is without these awesome tools. I appreciate that BlueJeans is constantly updating their platform to make it better using the feedback of users. It is easy to report problems and get help, which is a major plus. When we report problems, we know that BlueJeans is taking them into consideration and monitoring similar issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

BlueJeans Events is just different. Users are used to other platforms, which creates a learning curve for BlueJeans. Some features are not as intuitive as they should be - chat panel, video layout, connecting to audio via phone. It is hard for users to understand the difference between BlueJeans and other platforms they have used. One feature that has been asked about is showing more than 9 videos on the screen at once and being able to scroll through all videos. Additionally, BlueJeans Events does not integrate well with Outlook. Another pitfall of BlueJeans is the nearly-indistinguishable line between Meetings and Events. It is hard to know when to use which platform. It seems nonsensical to have two different platforms for very very similar needs. The few different features between Meetings and Events seem that they would be helpful on the other platform, too. This causes our users to question why there are two platforms and when to use which platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to get to know the platform and don't rush the process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently, we are working to make BlueJeans Events a standard for our company. We have hit a few roadblocks, with users dialing in by phone and internet connectivity issues. We like the ease of scheduling on the BlueJeans web browser, but it does present a struggle when integrating with Outlook. Overall, there have been a lot of small technical glitches that make it hard to rely on BlueJeans for all of our needs. Though BlueJeans support has been there along the way, the amount of problems that have stemmed makes it hard for our users to completely trust the platform. We are hoping that this platform will help us to achieve an end-all platform for meetings and events that, when our users get to completely understand, will be seamless and very helpful going forward. In our use, it seems to be moving this way, but quite slowly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Voice Quality is the best among Teams, Zoom, Google meet Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. No possibility to co-work (on the same file, in same system etc.)

2. No possibility to run project or the team and control their free time. No possibility to invite employees easily, each time it needs to send invitation by e-mail. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Please add teamworking / co-working possibilities

2. Please increase "share screen" quality

3. Please adjust Bluetooth issues on Headphones.

4. Please allow desktop control for members

5. Please add some quick useful applications for co-working (shared calculator, shared excel, shared translator, shared google search)

6. Add voice commands for quick searches on Google or other Search Engines

7. Add Calling options - (if we need some employee who's offline, we should be able to call directly from the system) - that would make all people available to calls, of at least if someone is late we could call him/her and remind to join.

8. Add online doodle possibilities :)

9. Convert conference calls (voice calls) into Blue Jeans calls - possibility

10. Link to any Cloud or One drive - to make documents available for any call attendee

11. Current Recordings could not be easily available for others. Please make it happen. I download my recordings and than uploading to the cloud.

12. Give a name to the meeting (even in the Subject of The e-mail)

13. Add separate chat function / separate speak function with the member of the call (to re-negotiate some parts :) (now i'm trying to message my employee if he is speaking bullshit ::) and i want to stop him. It would be great if i will have a chance to ask him to stop or other quick buttons :)

What do you like best?

I like that employees can answer questions on a named or anonymous basis. Depending on the conversation topic, employees may feel more "safe" asking a question anonymously.

I also like the different roles that can be assigned (i.e. presenter, moderator, attendee). It's hard to manage all aspects of a meeting, so having different capabilities for each role has been great! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the polling aspect as much since you can only answer one question at a time. I wished there was a way to ask multiple questions at a time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reaching beyond the 150 participant maximum that a single user has on their account. Given we are a global company, it's a great entry point for us to stay connected with everyone and have more folks joining.

Our teams have been also using BlueJeans Events for all-employee meetings now. Before we've had a mix of in-person and virtual, so it's a helpful tool and very beneficial to our users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The feature of BlueJeans that I like the most is its ease of use, both for the host and for the participants. It is easy to schedule meetings and it is easy for new participants to connect to meetings. Logging in is fast, and connecting to meetings is fast. Also, it is easy to share join details. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The significant weaknesses of BlueJeans are the inability to change time of one meeting in a series of meetings, in ability to see your scheduled meetings beyond three months, inability to use virtual backgrounds, inability to display an image when your video is turned off, and the limit of seeing a maximum of only 9 participants in gallery view. These weaknesses have prompted us to use other virtual meeting platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation is to fully understand the limitations regarding changing one meeting in a series, viewing your scheduled meetings beyond three months, no ability to use virtual backgrounds or an image when video is turned off, and inability to see more than 9 participants in gallery view. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of my work-related meetings are virtual, and about 50% of these meetings are via BlueJeans, but these virtual meetings are not BlueJeans Events. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
