Coming Soon 

Raise Hand

By now you’ve probably experienced the awkward moment where you interrupted someone during a video call to share your opinion. Yeah.. we’ve all been there. Especially on video it can be tricky to know when there’s room for you to speak unless the host opens up the conversation. 

That’s why our pals in the product team will add the Raise hand feature soon. It will be easy for you to indicate when you’d like to say something, without awkwardly interrupting the speaker. 

You can simply hover above the chat icon in the toolbar and click the ✋. The host will be notified that you’d like to say something. 

Say goodbye to awkward interruptions.

Room Insights 

To help you get more insights, we’re adding Room specific data to the Insights Dashboard. You can dive deeper into your customers’ usage to understand how often the rooms are being used and how many participants join these rooms. 

Room Insights will include: 

  • A complete list of all the rooms that have been created in your account 

  • Quick and easy search for specific rooms by name or date 

  • Filter search to only show rooms that have been in use 

  • Room-specific usage like how many sessions have occurred in that room, how many participants there were or how many minutes have been used 

When available click the ‘Rooms’ tab in your Dashboard menu to access these new insights. You can also pull this data straight from the API into your own product. 

This is one of the many improvements we’re making so you can ensure you can accurately bill back your costs to your own customers more easily.
