Can I install Bluejeans Desktop App 2.0 without removing the old one so I can switch app when I have to?

I wanted to try the new features with the Desktop App 2.0 but there are features I still want to use with the older version like the facebook integration and remote desktop control to name a few.

So if this is possible without any conflict between the app, I can use the new enhanced features of the desktop app 2.0 on meetings where I don't need to use some of the old version features. But whenever I want to use the Remote Desktop Control, I can easily switch to the old app version.

Thanks in advance!

Best,

Hello Joward,

Yes, you can install the 2.x application and still keep the 1.x application. All that you need to do is join a meeting and add the command /blue to the end of the meeting link in the browser like so:

https://bluejeans.com/123456789/blue

This will download the exe for you to install. Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any questions.

Are there any plans to bring RDC into the 2.x application, and if so when?

Hello Tamer,

Yes, RDC is on the roadmap for the app 2.x. There is no confirmed ETA as of now but we will definitely update the thread once it draws near.

Thank you,
