Mobile messaging service NetSfere has rolled out a product update with encrypted group video, voice calling and real-time collaboration for mobile and desktop. 

The new features are designed to enhance team collaboration and drive workplace productivity through a more contextual, seamless communications experience with voice, video and text messaging while allowing businesses to maintain control and regulatory compliance.
 
“NetSfere was built from the ground up for the enterprise with a focus on three things: security, encryption and enterprise control,” said Anurag Lal, president and CEO. “Popular consumer-built messaging apps like Slack, Skype and WhatsApp have set the standard for mobile communications features, but they were never built with enterprise-security and control in mind. By adding new collaboration options to NetSfere’s platform offerings, we are now able to provide enterprises with the tools they need to optimize their workforce to be more productive without compromising on security.”

The group video calling feature enables instant video communication that takes place within an existing group conversation, ensuring all participants understand the full context of the discussion before joining the meeting. Every video call is encrypted in real-time, providing the end user with full control of the conversation. Additional features include audio and video mute indicators, speaking indicators, audio-based visual swaps to bring current participants to the foreground and notifications when users join and leave conversations.
 
Real-time collaboration lets participants share their screens with a single tap to collaborate on internal documents and materials, including images and videos. Additional features include overlay controls with speaker and mute options and full navigational controls to move anywhere inside or outside the app during screen sharing.

NetSfere is available globally and also offered in partnership with integrated telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom and with NTT Ltd., a global information communications and technology service provider.
