Samba Live 5.4

Jan 24, 2020 10:13:42 AM

Release date: 20 January 2020

The most exciting new feature in our latest release are layouts which allow speakers to control the layout of videos and content for their audience. Modes allow users to switch between full screen, tiled and thumbnail modes in your room.

For better collaboration in teams, we added shared notes. Those offer a way to work together on notes during a video conference. Moreover, users can now also connect via Safari – both on any desktop and any smartphone with iOS. And of course, still without any downloads. We also improved breakout room usage statistics and worked on general usability of some features so everyone can make the most out of Samba Live.

Chrome no longer requires an extension for screen share and the join experience has been made more intuitive.

Here's the full list. We're looking forward to seeing what you will create with the new Samba Live.
