New Paltalk Features
We have discovered several new
exciting features about the Paltalk service (we use
Paltalk to broadcast our
conference room). Due to these, it is now
possible to access our Paltalk room directly from our
website (and share it throughout the internet). It
is even possible to listen to our room through a
smartphone! These new features are listed below:
We do not know if it is new or
we just discovered it, but Paltalk has an
version which can be run directly out of your
browser (no need to open the actual Paltalk
program). In fact, using this Express version,
you can now directly join our room just by clicking
a hyperlink (although you still have to log in).
We have added this hyperlink to the bottom menu of
the site, under "Quick Links" ("Join us in our room
on Paltalk"). We have also added this link to
the "Quick Links" section on the right side of the Newsbrief
("Join Our Paltalk Room").
Therefore, now anyone can quickly join our Paltalk
room from any page on the website, or from the
Newsbrief, with just the click of a button!
We hope other people will also begin sharing this
link on their websites, social networks, blogs,
etc., so we can bring even more people to the
Paltalk room. The link is:
Using this same Paltalk
Express technology, we have added a widget to our
conference room page that constantly shows the
title and picture of our room as well as the number
of people currently in it, and is clickable to
directly join the room.
You can also add this widget to your own websites
and blogs. To do so, go to
this page, scroll down to the bottom (to the
section labeled "Don't have room for the
widget..."), copy the embed code, and
paste it into the HTML of your website, the
embedding section of your blog, etc.
Although Paltalk has had a
smartphone application for a while, you were
previously unable to join rooms with it. However, at least
for iPhone and iPod Touch, this has changed. You can
now join rooms, chat in text, listen, and speak, all
directly from the Paltalk app on your Apple device!
Paltalk also has an app for Blackberry (although we
do not know if you can join rooms from it), and it
says that Android is coming soon.
To download Paltalk's mobile apps, search your
mobile device's app store for "Paltalk", or go to:
