We’re happy to announce the latest release of the Adobe Connect mobile client, available now for iOS and Android. One of the key trends we see as we talk to our customers is that the usage of mobile is increasing across their user bases – and the expectation continues to move well beyond the ability to join a web conferencing session, but fully host, present, and interact – whether it is a virtual training session, a collaborative meeting, or large webinar.
Many of our customers leverage Adobe Connect to deliver virtual training, and there are several key trends we have continually heard as we listen to their experiences. The first is that learners are increasingly mobile. There is an expectation, especially for those out in the field – that content is available for them at the moment of need, and in small chunks that can easily be consumed and applied on the spot.

Mobile devices have taught us that we can watch content in smaller, bite sized pieces, wherever we are located. Social networks have exponentially increased the number of individuals across which we can share information and recommendations.
