Join a Presentation from an Android Device

In order to join a presentation, your attendee must download the Bomgar presentation app from Google Play. To present to mobile Android devices, your Bomgar Appliance must be running software version 14.1 or later. The Bomgar presentation client is supported on Android devices running Android 2.3 and higher.

Bomgar Presentation Client App

The attendee will be prompted to enter a site address. This is the web address of your Bomgar public site.

Your attendee can also enter his or her name as it should be displayed to the presenter and other attendees during the presentation.

The attendee can then enter a session key or select a presentation from the list. The session key is generated when the presentation is created and can be found in the presentation schedule or in the active presentation interface. The presenter can provide this session key to the attendee verbally or via email.

To select a presentation from the list, your public site must be configured to show a presentation list. Additionally, the presentation must be started and must have the Showing on Public List box checked. From the list of available presentations, the attendee must select a presentation and touch the Join button to the right of the selected presentation.

Presentation Agreement

Your administrator can determine which messages your attendee will see, if any, before the presentation begins. Messages that may be displayed include an attendee agreement and a greeting.

If no one is available to give the presentation, an orphaned presentation message may also be displayed.

Additionally, certain non-customizable messages appear when the presentation has not started, when screen sharing is paused, and when the presentation has finished.

To leave the presentation, the attendee can touch the Back button. If the presentation is still in progress, the attendee will be prompted to confirm that he or she wants to leave the presentation.
