SPEEK LAUNCHES ANDROID APP, SHARES 1 YEAR OF CONFERENCE CALL DATA

06/06/2013

Speek, the app that makes conference calls fast and easy to join, announced the launch of its Android app today.

Speek eschews the traditional dial-in number, pin, and elevator music. Instead, conference callers can join by going to a URL (like speek.com/kiramnewman) or clicking the leader’s username on the app. Once in, you can see who’s talking, share images, and (if you’re the head honcho) manage and mute participants.

Along with its launch, the startup released one year of statistics from Speek conference calls, totaling about 6 million minutes. On average, says cofounder and CTO Danny Boice, users make five 15-minute calls per month with five participants. Here’s some more data.
