Digital Samba 547

Available from: 25 September 2022

Samba Live is being rebranded. We're introducing new products, new pricing, and new technology, and, to mark the occasion, we’re taking our brand back to its roots. Our platform will be known as Digital Samba, from now on.

Digital Samba for Meetings and Digital Samba Embedded are new additions to the Digital Samba product line.

Digital Samba for Meetings is a stable, secure, and GDPR-compliant video conferencing solution for day-to-day communications.

Digital Samba Embedded now allows customers to embed a live conferencing front-end into any web page with just a few lines of code. It comes in two plan types, Embedded Webinars and Embedded Meetings. Embedded Webinars is the new name for the OEM product. 

 

Meetings, Webinars, Education and Embedded Webinars

This update also contains bug fixes across the platform. Read more about our latest updates below.

Account Center

New Features

  • Revamped the Account Center with a more attractive and user-friendly design. Its functionality will be largely the same and there will be little to no learning curve when adjusting to the new design.

Fixed

  • Resolved issue wherein the newly created Breakout Room was not showing in the room list.
  • Removed secondary call to action from the 'Meeting invite' email, for clarity.
  • Free trial users who have gone past the 14 days available in the Free plan can now log in to the Account Center with an option to upgrade.
  • Added alt attribute for images in platform emails to aid accessibility.

In-Room

Fixed

  • Resolved issue wherein the 'Create Bookmark' button was covering the Whiteboard switcher icon, by making it draggable.

Mobile

Fixed

  • Fixed issue wherein the Audience user was able to share documents even when the 'Allow Content Sharing' permission is disabled for the user.
  • Resolved issue wherein the files and folders disappeared from the Media Library after starting breakout.
  • Resolved issue wherein the updated user name was not showing on the Q&A screen after rejoining the session.

 

Embedded Meetings

The new architecture of Embedded Meetings, which will eventually drive all Embedded products, was designed from scratch to provide unrivaled stability and scalability. The groundwork is laid, and we are working hard to supplement this product with a wealth of features.
