Desktop App: Minimize to system tray

Each time I close the app (because I don't want extra icons in my taskbar), the app effectively closes. Compare to Slack and Skype where "closing" is really "minimize to tray". As a remote worker, 90% of my meetings take place over BlueJeans. Having it always open would help a lot.

Hello Zahra,

Thank you for providing your feedback!

This is a feature we have for our Windows 2.x application that is available now. Please see the attached screenshot.

You can get the new application today, all you need to do is add /blue to the end of your meeting link in the browser.

Regards,
Lee - BlueJeans Support

Great! I add the app installed and "Check for updates" didn't signal that a version 2.x was available. Installing with the "Blue Jeans Launcher.exe" found in the "Downloads" section gets me a version 1.34.x as well. 

The file I got from /blue is "BlueJeansLauncher.exe" (no spaces). That one... I can't find the version unless I go to "Uninstall programs" in the Control Panel!!! It's 2.4.x

Just a suggestion: maybe change the file in the "Downloads" section? And check all the other installers in that section while you're at it. ;)
