Nokia Conference

Nokia has updated its Conference Beta for Windows Phone. We last looked at the Lumia exclusive app back in April, but we're happy to see some improvements being applied. This new release adds support for conference calls that are regular appointments, as well as longer pauses and improves phone number and ID / PIN logic. If you've been actively using the beta, you'll be pleased to learn that feedback is being implemented.

Here's what Nokia reports as being new in this version (0.95): 

  • 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

You can download the Nokia Conference Beta from the Windows Phone Store, as well as finding out more details about the app and other beta programs over at the Nokia Beta Labs. Thanks, daza, for the tip!
