First public release of BigBlueButton client for Android by GT-Mconf team

The GT-Mconf team, working in the Laboratory of Prav (located in the Institute of Informatics, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil), have reached another milestone in creating a BigBlueButton Android client.

Felipe Cecagno posted the availability of the first public release for download. This release supports both chat and voice.

Here's a list of participants in the session and in the voice conference:

We downloaded their client a within a few minutes were using our android phones to listen and speak in a BigBlueButton conference. Very cool!

This is great progress Felipe. Getting voice working is a BIG milestone.
