Nokia Conference available on Beta Labs, helps makes group talks easier on Windows Phone
Head in to conference calls often? You might want to give Nokia Conference for Windows Phone a try. It's an app that's currently available as beta on Nokia's Beta Labs, enabling consumers to quickly join calls without having to jump in to the calendar app, remember ID / PIN numbers, switching to the phone app, dialling out the number and entering codes.
What's interesting is for those who own a Windows Phone 8 handset, the ability to join via voice is present. Simply hold down the Windows button and say "conference join". The app will then automatically work out which meeting is desired, return it for confirmation and subsequently connect the user. Should the company use Lync, Nokia Conference would then launch the Lync app.
You can download Nokia Conference from the Windows Phone Store and check out more information on the product over on the Beta Labs. Note that some users may have to register to access the download.
