FlowPlay has launched its new app for Zoom, entitled Live Game Night Poker, which will deliver an “embedded experience” accessible within Zoom Meetings.
Available in the Zoom App Marketplace, Live Game Night Poker leverages “state-of-the-art technology” to provide as close to an in-person connection as possible, allowing up to 10 of a host’s colleagues to play together in a face-to-face matchup.
“New and innovative platforms that push the boundaries of what’s possible are few and far between. Even rarer is the opportunity to be first to market on a new platform, and FlowPlay is honored to have been selected by Zoom as a launch partner for Zoom Apps,” noted Craig Robinson, chief revenue officer, FlowPlay. “There’s nothing better than a little friendly competition, and Live Game Night Poker enables a new way for coworkers to connect, both during and outside of work hours.”
To play FlowPlay’s new title, Zoom users need to install the game from the Zoom App Marketplace and start a Zoom Meetings. Once in the meeting, users can launch the game from the Zoom Apps tab at the bottom of the meeting window. The meeting host will be able to configure the game options. Once the host has set up the game, meeting participants will be taken directly to the poker room and play can begin.
Ross Mayfield, product lead, Zoom Apps & Integrations, Zoom, explained: “Zoom Apps bring best of breed applications into the Zoom experience for enhanced productivity and engaging experiences.
“We believe connected teams are the most productive, which is why we’re so excited to see FlowPlay building on our platform to offer a new way to connect through gameplay, thanks to Live Game Night Poker.”
