New video experience and pinned meets
July 12, 2020
This is our weekly update, and we’d greatly appreciate any feedback.
New features / significant changes:
- New video experience. We’ve introduced numerous visual and functional improvements to how video conferencing and screen sharing work. It would be too hard to cover the entire results of several weeks of hard work in just a few sentences so please just give it a try and share with us what you like and don’t like. We are about halfway through what we plan to deliver and will continue working on enhancing this experience for the next couple of weeks. Then we will switch to redesigning some other screens.
- Pinned meets. You can now tell Meetter to schedule certain meets to specific all-meets. This can be useful when you have strong reasons for wanting a meet on a certain day, and don’t want to cause schedule fragmentation by scheduling it outside of all-meets. This should be used sparingly, as pinning too many or too lengthy or too large meets can have a negative impact on all the other dynamically scheduled meets.
Small improvements & bug fixes:
- [BUG] Sometimes finished meets were rescheduled to the next day as if they had never happened
- [BUG] Starting meet from DM using /meetter now didn’t invite the creator of the meet
