Our latest update adds several improvements to our Service Plan settings, such as the addition of new options to hide the "Leave/End Session" button, chat emojis, emoji reactions, slide navigation, and Whiteboard toolbar by default.

With Samba Live 5.34, users will now be able to see up to eight broadcaster tiles simultaneously when any content is open on tiled mode. Mobile users will enjoy the new "Switch Camera" functionality. 

We also resolved minor issues to enhance platform functionality and user experience.
