Nokia Conference Beta Updated (Changelog)June 7, 2013 No Comments
Nokia has recently updated their Nokia Conference Beta app.
This update addresses a number of issues, thanks to your feedback from the first beta. Notable changes include:
- Improved phone number and ID/PIN parsing logic, based on beta feedback.
- Added support for conference calls that are regular appointments, not meeting invites. UI wise, that’s achieved by the new “Use for meetings from company” checkbox in the conference system settings UI. When unchecked, the conference system rules are used for every appointment in your calendar where the digit rules match, not just meetings from a particular email domain.
- Added support for longer pauses than just 3-6 seconds
- Made several bug fixes and some UI tweaks

Nokia Conference makes it very easy to dial into conference calls. No more switching to the calendar app, remembering the ID/PIN codes, getting the right access number, switching to the phone app, making the call, and entering all the codes. Instead just hit one button or even join via voice command. It’s very handy for anyone that makes frequent conference calls, as so many of us do.
To join via voice, hold down the Windows key and speak the command “conference join”. We’ll automatically figure out which meeting is going on currently or about to start, say it back to you for confirmation, and connect you. If your company uses Lync, we’ll launch the Lync app to connect you.
Settings for many companies’ conference systems are stored on our server and recognized automatically. For those that aren’t, you can define the settings yourself (then you should share them with us, to spare your coworkers the trouble). If you find a conference system that doesn’t work well with the app for some reason, please let us know.
If you make conference calls to several different companies, that’s fine–we’ll automatically figure out which conference system settings to use.
After installing, you probably want to pin it to your Home screen, placing it near the top if you make many conference calls. It may become one of your most frequently used apps on the phone.Tags: Nokia, Nokia Conference BetaApps
