Registration-free Video Conferencing Service Meetings.io Adds Screen Sharing

Back in May I introduced you to Meetings.io for hosting free video conferences without registering for an account. This week Meetings.io added a couple of helpful new features. First, Meetings.io now support screen sharing. Second, easy file sharing has been added to Meetings.io. To share a file with the members of your video conference just drag a file from your desktop to the transfer window in your Meetings.io space and everyone in the conference will be able to grab the file.

Applications for Education
Meetings.io allows you to have up to five people in a room so you won't be able to use it to conduct a large instruction session, but it could be a great platform for quickly hosting an online tutoring session. Now that Meetings.io supports screen sharing it has become closer to Google+ Hangouts. But Meetings.io doesn't require users to register at all which could make it a great alternative to Google+ Hangouts.
