2019. GoToMeeting improved AI-transcription in videoconferencing software
LogMeIn announced the new version of GoToMeeting, that focuses on delivering a simple, intuitive end-user experience, while giving IT even more control over deployment, management, and security. In this new release, GoToMeeting has launched a series of updates to improve the ease of the collaboration platform for IT and users before, during and after the meeting: completely reimagined video-first design (unified on all devices), unparalleled quality audio, real-time notes, AI-powered transcription. Hosts can now create multiple personal meeting rooms with custom branding for teams to jump in and collaborate instantly at any time. GoToMeeting has also updated its popular calendar plugins and integrations with Office 365 and Outlook, GSuite Calendar, Salesforce, and more and continues to support integrations with tools like Slack and Zoho.
2018. GoToMeeting added AI transcription, Amazon Alexa integration
LogMeIn has updated its GoToMeeting video and audio conference platform with new features that include a text chat function, AI transcription service and integration with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. The Business Messaging feature lets employees chat one-to-one or in groups with each other or with external clients using the new GoToMeeting desktop application or a standalone mobile app. Users can jump from a message thread directly into a video or audio conference with one click. The Smart Meeting Assistant transcribes meeting audio, storing the text in the cloud for subsequent sharing. This means that meeting attendees won’t need to worry about taking notes and can focus on discussions with colleagues.
2017. GoToMeeting unveiled conference room solution
GoToMeeting launched GoToConference - all-in-one hardware system that lets you set up a small
2016. Citrix sold GoToMeeting to LogMeIn
LogMeIn is merging with Citrix’s GoTo collaboration spin-off in a $1.8 billion deal. The news comes 10 months after Citrix first revealed its intention to spin off the division, which uses the brand GoTo, as part of an effort to refocus on its core virtualization business. LogMeIn and GoTo will be in a much better competitive position than they are now. The companies plan to put a stronger management team in place, synchronize go-to-market efforts and integrate their product lines into one unified portfolio. The combined vendor will presumably also eliminate some of the overlap that currently exists between the product lines to streamline its value proposition. Among the tools that are likely to be axed is GoToMyPC, which competes with LogMeIn’s flagship remote desktop tool, and the latter vendor’s join.me online meeting software.
2014. GoToMeeting comes to Android smartwatches
Videoconferencing app GoToMeeting added support for Android Wear smartwatches. The new app is already available on Google Play and works with Android Wear watches including the Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360, and LG G Watch. With this GoToMeeting app, the watch is a second (or third) screen, offering only simple playback control. Citrix doesn’t expect users to conduct business from their wrist, but rather use their phone or computer for more important tasks than joining bi-daily sales calls.
2014. Citrix launched free version of GoToMeeting
GoToMeeting is one of the most popular services for video calls, web-conferencing and webinars. Even though it's not so cheap, companies are willing to pay for it because the quality of communication is really important for online meetings. And now Citrix is launching the free version of the service - GoToMeeting Free, which allows to conduct online meetings with up to three participants. The app is built on the basis of the Chrome browser and it doesn't require registration, download and installation of additional software or browser extensions. You just press the "Start Meeting" button and get the meeting link, which you can send to one or two co-workers. However, this service is purely for video chat. It doesn't provide any web-conferencing collaboration tools which GoToMeetings is famous for.

2011. Skype to add web-conferencing powered by GoToMeeting, not Webex
Recently Skype is intending to increase profits by expanding its business services. Skype already offers to business the VoIP service, IP-PBX integration and group video conferencing. And it would be very logical to add web-conferencing to this list, because many Skype partners (like Yuuguu, Yugma, Mikogo) are already earning on it. As known Skype almost 2 years ago added the screen-sharing feature. But it would be a shame to charge money for it. Firstly, it is the very basic implementation of screen-sharing without application selection, screen annotations, granting mouse control... Second, Skype's screen-sharing only works in one-to-one sessions and doesn't work simultaneously with video calling. So, finally, Skype has decided to pump-up and sell this feature and surprised everyone by announcing the partnership with Citrix GoToMeeting.
