Code With Me from JetBrains now supports remote collaboration calls

Developer toolkit vendor JetBrains has rolled out a plugin that will let developers work on projects securely and communicate over calls without leaving the development environment.

The Code With Me plugin — so far available in beta — is aimed at improving software development workflows within and across remote calls, according to Ekatarina Kalinina, blogging for JetBrains.

“Whenever you want to talk to your peers, you can initiate audio and video calls right from your JetBrains IDE. Code With Me works perfectly for both one on one meetings and group sessions,” Kalinina says.

“There has recently been a big shift toward remote work. Collaborative solutions provide software teams with the necessary tools to be productive and engaged with one another, no matter where the members of the team are based.”

The plugin comes with version 2021.1 of compatible JetBrains IDEs — such as IntelliJ IDEA (Community and Ultimate), WebStorm, PyCharm (Community and Professional), PhpStorm, GoLand, RubyMine, CLion, and AppCode.

Developers working on version 2020.3.1 or higher can download and install Code With Me from the JetBrains Marketplace, Kalinina says — noting that the early-release version may still have errors because it is in beta.

Using Code With Me, developers can pair program, troubleshoot, and share knowledge live and remotely from their IDE over integrated video and voice calls. The latest update means that developers can share projects securely and collaborate on their code in real time as well as talk to each other without leaving the JetBrains IDE.
