We continue to consolidate and improve our in-meeting notifications to make them more informative, scannable, and clickier™.
You know all those checks before you could join a meeting on Venue? Like the firewall and internet connection checks? A thing of the past! All of that now happens silently in the background, and we’ll only let you know if something’s gone awry.
This isn’t a client-facing feature, but we just wanted you to know that our build process is getting really robust. More automated testing! More logs! This helps us ship smarter.
If you run into a browser permissions problem when you want to screenshare, we can now detect this and show you how to fix it with a helpful modal.
We can’t always detect your camera or mic automatically (there are a lot of edge cases!). When this happens, we now give you a better notification, and the ability to re-run system checks.
Default Assets to your meetings – so you can stop uploading the same stuff all the time. There are currently three types of assets: Content (PDFs and the like), Music, and Backgrounds.
If you’re a video wizard running virtual cameras or composition apps (like OBS, or similar), those would be chosen as the default instead of the actual physical camera in your computer (not a great default if OBS isn’t running!). This is now fixed!
Occasionally attendee avatars would show ?? instead of their initials, which is obviously not so great! We improved how we handle avatars in general, so this won’t happen anymore.
Wow! We shipped v1 of
Audience Gallery, a new addition to your meetings that brings the real live video of your attendees into your space! Try it out at your next All Hands!
Safari user? Good news! Screen-sharing is now more reliable in your browser of choice.
