As part of the continuous R&D effort to make VEEDEEO the most innovative video cloud platform in the market, we have proceeded to a major upgrade at the beginning of this week.
As a result, the VEEDEEO system is now easier and simpler and has gained several improvements and convenient new features.
1. Refreshed call interface
Simpler, cleaner and 100% user friendly. We understood the last call menu was quite confusing with so many button options, so we decided to let only the most used buttons visible during the call and arranged all other options on the new improved menu sidebar. This sidebar menu, on the left, will also be always visible so no feature is missed (some users were unaware of the former sidebar menu because that was hidden).
2. Screen-sharing performance better than ever
Faster and optimized so users can share any content on their screens during the video meetings with the best possible results. And to all internet users fancying Mozilla Firefox browser above all others, news are good. Is now possible to start a screen-share using this browser (no plugins needed).
3. Layout design more suitable to user demands
Users can now change the layout regardlessly of the number of participants, as well as enable or disable VAD at any moment during the call. This means VAD no longer turns automatic in meetings with 5 or more participants.
4. VEEDEEO turns multi-language
We are giving the first steps into making VEEDEEO a multi-language platform. We have added two new languages beside English: is now possible to use the platform in Portuguese or Spanish. Boas notícias! Users can change the language preference at anytime, even right before entering the call (this will not affect the preference of the organizer).
5. Audio-only participants can now watch the video meeting
Just a matter of choice. If a user doesn’t have the necessary gear or doesn’t want to participate in a video meeting, he or she can listen to and watch it anyway in audio-only mode.
6. Testing audio to make it flawless
When onboarding a call, users can select the audio output (speakers) and test the audio before the meeting. Any technical flaw can be therefore identified and corrected in advance so as not to affect the video session.
7. Registered Video Systems can be called from the meeting interface
Global Video Directory is now integrated in the call interface, allowing users to add / call registered video systems during the meeting. Registered systems must be online.
8. Permission to speak during a meeting
Also we have added the Raise hand (or Request to speak) feature to help hosts to moderate participants and conduct a truly productive video meeting. This new feature can be found on the left sidebar menu.
Stay tuned for future updates.
