Release date: 19 March 2020
In order to be more efficient during the global pandemic, we combined Samba Live 5.5 and 5.6 into one, large combo release. As always, you'll find we've been busy on new features, interface improvements and bug fixes.
Important announcement for legacy account holders: 5.6 is the last version where flash is set as default when creating sessions. With 5.7 we will be setting html5 as default.
You can now share your computer's sound when sharing your screen from chrome and, to avoid an infinite replication of your shared screen (as you might have experienced in the past), we have turned the screen sharing preview off by default. You can now also share your screen from Safari.
For those of you building integrations, we have removed the reliance on cookies which will make experience in iFrames much better and we allow account holders to add custom code to their pages.
In your account center, you will find additional settings to fine-tune the rights & roles of users in your organization. You can now also create a public page for your recurring meetings, very helpful if you are creating online courses.
For those of you who love Outlook, we are launching our Outlook for Samba Live Add-in.
