NEW YORK, March 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For a better fit, check out BlueJeans Basic, a new free video conferencing plan that allows users to meet for as long as they want, one-on-one or in groups of up to 25 people. With unlimited free meetings enforcing no time limit, users can meet, create, sell, learn and collaborate with peers across time zones—and days—while enjoying superior service that goes beyond simply meeting.
“At BlueJeans we’re always looking at ways we can be better partners to and for our customers,” said Chris Lewter, VP and GM, BlueJeans by Verizon. “We also realize there is no one-size-fits-all approach to business, just like one size doesn’t really fit all when it comes to the clothes we wear. To better fit the needs of individuals and small businesses that may not require enterprise-level services, we’re excited to expand on our BlueJeans Meetings platform with a solution that emphasizes the most important basics—better audio quality and HD video reliability—to help them grow their business.”
With Better Audio and Video, BlueJeans Fits Better

With HD Video, spatial audio, industry-leading noise reduction, and dynamic leveling all working together to provide impeccable call quality, businesses large and small can help drive more inclusive and equitable meetings for every user.
