What's New and Improved
The October 2015 release is a maintenance release. In this release we focused on resolving issues to continually improve your experience. We also added the ability to give you more control over how you see shared content.
Improved Audio Experience
Collaborate now accommodates for lower bandwidth or network latency when sending audio. This reduces the occasional robotic sounding voices so other people can hear you better. While we were at it, we also fixed the occasional 500ms drop in audio when the active speaker switches.
More Control Over Making Content Bigger
Now you have more than one option for making shared content bigger. Introducing the content resizing tools.
Best Fit: Take advantage of your screen real estate. Content adjusts to be completely viewable in the available area. It displays as large as possible while keeping the aspect ratio intact.
Actual Size: Return the image to the original size.
Zoom in: Make the content bigger. Move the content around to see everything.
Zoom out: Make the content smaller.
We resolved many known issues. These include but are not limited to the following.
- Six audio streams can now be maintained with less chance of missed audio.
