Adding extra information to the incoming stream will enhance communication between an expert and an end user. AR annotations in Zoho Lens allow users to place arrows to mark specific locations on the screen. Experts and technicians at the remote end can also draw on the screen using a pencil tool, and rectangular and elliptical drawing tools, as well as erase and start over using the clear screen option.
VoIP and Text Chat
You can rely on an interactive visual assistance session through VoIP and text chat. Our built-in chat eliminates the need for external messaging applications during the resolution process.
Smart Glass Support
At certain times, working with a smartphone limits the work you can do. Our integration with major smart glass vendors allows technicians to receive guidance even while working hands-free. The camera in the smart glass allows the wearer to broadcast the live streaming to the expert, and the wearable headsets provide the perfect platform to communicate verbally.
Capture snapshots of the camera stream to document specific events during the session, or to analyze an issue further. The snapshots will automatically be saved in the cloud, and can be downloaded at any time during a session.
Freeze Camera Stream
