Recently, Citrix launched GoToMeeting Free, online communications software that facilitates users to easily and quickly sync-up videos by simply clicking on the new application icon.

GoToMeeting Free is available on the Chrome browser and allows free, unlimited video conferencing between a maximum of three people. It is a browser-based app that offers users to join an audio/video conference without the need to log in, download additional software, or enable plug-ins.  

Currently, Citrix is concentrating on three broad markets: Desktop virtualization, Cloud Infrastructure and networking, and Collaboration and sharing.
