Citrix's collaboration platform Podio gets Skype-like video conferencing and in-chat file sharing
The addition of video communication to the platform enables users to speak with their colleagues and other collaborators in real-time to square away any questions. The Skype-like service will save the chat history within Podio, making it accessible at any time.
Furthermore, the new feature allows parties to share files with each other from within their voice chats. Content content to be shared from Sharefile, Google Drive, Sugarsync, Dropbox, Box, and several other services.
The launch of voice and audio chat was announced in May, but it's taken the past couple of months to get the platform ready for the features. Podio says that teams can ask questions, share updates, or discuss their projects in real-time, with the hope being that they'll work together better on assigned tasks. The video feature is powered through GoToMeeting with HDFaces, another Citrix product.
