Eagle-eyed bandwidth-tracking supersleuths might have noticed that the audience gallery could consume too much bandwidth and impact the performance of the stage. We’ve fine-tuned the way we stream the audience into your meetings, which should result in the audience gallery using (on average!) only 10% of the bandwidth it did previously – making everything else snappier and more responsive.

If you were an attendee in the audience gallery, you’d have to leave and rejoin for your device choice to be reflected – now this is live and instantaneous. Feel free to switch those cameras!

We want to make it easier for everyone to host an amazing meeting on Venue, so we’ve changed some of our speaker controls to be more in line with software you might have already used. Speaker controls now live bottom-center, underneath the stage. You can also drag the control panel around and use the included keyboard shortcuts to mute your camera and mic (CTRL+D and CTRL+E, in case you were wondering).

Good news: you don’t need your glasses prescription checked, some PDFs could indeed look blurry or low-res on a retina screen. We’ve changed how we render PDFs to stage to make everything super-crisp!

Venue is speedier! After some investigation, we reduced computing cycles spent on various system events – like checking speaker volume, for example. Venue performance should now be up to 65% faster.

Sometimes speakers would encounter a problem when switching between different input devices (cameras, mics, the like) – we now handle this more gracefully and have enabled speakers to re-run system checks to clear out any tech ghosts. On to better, more reliable events!

Folks love Venue! ❀ Which is great, but we want to make sure that your first meeting is picture-perfect, so we’re (temporarily) putting a waitlist in place to make sure every new client feels the ✨ Venue vibes ✨. Go right ahead and create your account, we’ll let you in ASAP.

Our unread notifications for Chat, Backstage, and Q&A could occasionally get into an incorrect state – obviously this is frustrating! We’ve changed how we handle notifications (even across browser refreshes) to make this system much more reliable and trustworthy.

While some of our changes will be largely invisible to Venue users, we’ve been spending quite a bit of time rewriting, hardening and shining up our entire infrastructure – in terms of performance and internal reporting. What does this mean for you? You’ll notice that things just work better.
