Release date: 22 February 2021
This is our most comprehensive update since the release of Samba Live. Our team has been busy implementing new features, releasing our new mobile apps, and optimizing our platform over the past weeks and months.
We have built a brand new video engine for a better and more reliable video conferencing experience. You can expect higher quality video while using fewer resources (both your CPU and bandwidth).
When logging in to Samba Live you will find a revamped interface that provides more flexibility while being as easy to use as possible. You will find those improvements in small details. For example, you can move tiles around the screen, mute newcomers by default and enable downloads for shared content.
With Samba Live 5.9 we are also launching our new mobile apps for iOS and Android (which will be available in the app stores very soon), providing you a seamless experience from your mobile devices. With the first release of our new app, you can join sessions, chat, see who's participating, and also watch any shared content. Our upcoming releases will introduce more and more features so you can enjoy a true Samba Live-experience also within the native apps.
You can now also customize your sessions in more detail. Our update allows to choose the number of thumbnails per page, the tiled videos per page, and also to enable HD streaming from the workspace settings. Moreover, we now allow you to reduce screenshare bandwidth if you are running on a slow internet connection.
You can now follow the currently active speaker easily and also navigate through video thumbnails in pages.
We are also happy to announce that we have transitioned to a more agile development process which allows us to release updates and bugfixes more frequently.
We'd love to hear your feedback on our latest update. This way we can continue to improve Samba Live. You can also submit a review on G2 and let others know what you think about Samba Live. We appreciate every feedback!
Now, let's start exploring our new features and read more about all changes in detail below.
