Based on the Intel Core i7 CPU, the Chromebox also includes an HD camera, microphone and speaker unit controllable by remote control - and is seamless, eliminating the need for dial-in phone numbers and passcodes. Google is internally using the system to not only test it out, but continue to be aware of future changes that can be made to further improve user experience.

 

For businesses trying to host more interactive meetings, the Chromebox for Meetings system costs $999 and is free for the first year - businesses must then pay a $250 charge per year for access. The system is available now.

 

New software technologies continues to revolutionize how employees interact with each other, as Google, Microsoft, and other companies create new generation audio, text, and video-based conferencing solutions.
