GoTo Meeting (formerly GoToMeeting) is a web conferencing software by GoTo.[2] It is an online meeting, desktop sharing, and video conferencing software package that enables the user to meet with other computer users, customers, clients or colleagues via the Internet in real time. In late 2015, Citrix announced plans to spin off the GoToMeeting business as a standalone subsidiary with a market value around $4 billion.[3] In July 2016, Citrix and LogMeIn announced plans to merge the GoTo family of products.[4]

Technology[edit]

GoTo Meeting is designed to broadcast the desktop view of a host computer to a group of computers connected to the host through the Internet. Transmissions are protected with high-security encryption and optional passwords. By combining a web-hosted subscription service with software installed on the host computer, transmissions can be passed through highly restrictive firewalls.[5]

History[edit]

GoTo Meeting was developed in July 2004 using the remote access and screen sharing technology from GoToMyPC and GoToAssist to allow web conferencing.[6] The later release of GoTo Webinar in 2006 and GoToTraining in 2010 expanded GoToMeeting capabilities to accommodate larger audiences. In February 2017, GoTo Meeting became a product of LogMeIn as a result of a merger between LogMeIn and Citrix’s GoTo business.[1]
