GoToMeeting is a video conference platform mostly used for business meetings. With the GoToMeeting app on your smartphone, you can handle all the business meetings and conferences anywhere you want. If you want to take your business meetings at your home, you can simply cast the GoToMeeting video conference to your TV using Chromecast. Unfortunately, the GoToMeeting app doesn’t have a built-in Cast icon. You need to screen mirror the app from your smartphone. By doing this, you can handle your video conference on a big screen.
The GoToMeeting app is free to use. You can join or host a meeting just by signing up for an account. But, if you want to get all the features, you need to get the premium. They offer three types of plans. Professional, Business, and Enterprise. Based on your business requirements, you can choose the subscription.
