We've rolled our a new virtual classroom build across all global locations. This new build introduces some amazing features and improves overall stability of the app.
1) Introducing "New Enhanced Recorder"
- New Enhanced Recorder (isRecordingLayout=1) is designed to record the entire browser tab including all the app icons and layout. Customers can choose between current standard and all-new enhanced recorder layouts for recorded videos. If isRecordingLayout=1 is not specified in the API call, default layout of isRecordingLayout=0 will be automatically assumed be the current standard recorder.
2) Improved DPI for uploaded documents
- Improved DPI (dots per inch) offers improved quality for all your documents on the whiteboard. Documents in general with a higher DPI will look much better when compared with those of a lower DPI. Now, the documents will look amazing across all the devices.
3) Plugin free Screensharing for Chrome 70+ browsers
- Similar to our plugin-free screen sharing with Firefox browsers, this new update introduces the same technology with Chrome browsers version 70+ and above. This offers faster and improved performance when sharing entire desktop screen, application window or Chrome tab.
4) Enable/Disable video of all attendees globally
- Introducing a new global option to mute or unmute webcam of all attendees similar to the microphone option available today.
5) Improved look for the stacked videos
- Removed unnecessary black areas on the videos stacked on the right top of the application screen and increased the quality.
6) Show angle when drawing straight lines
- Teaching maths is now lot of fun. With this new feature, you can dynamically find out the angle of a straight line. Angles are measured in degrees, written °. The maximum angle is 360°. This is the angle all the way round a point. Half of this is the angle on a straight line, which is 180°.
7) Text editor support
- Introducing dynamic text editor support to select font, size and colors when writing text on the whiteboard using the 'text tool'.
8) Improved bandwidth usage and CPU consumption
- Improved bandwidth consumption when switching between video conferencing, screen sharing and recording by adapting to the conditions and lowered CPU usage across all devices.
