Flowers become Screens
Our next logical step on the road to the open client is the update of the current beta.
This update not only brings much needed stability fixes, it also unveils a whole new era and brings Linux client much closer to what other desktop clients have to offer.
Enter “Talking Screens” – with screensharing. Now you can share your desktop with unprecedented ease. Share whole screen or a selected region – it’s just one click away!
In addition we addressed numerous smaller usability issues, such as a separate dialog for incoming authorization requests – now you can actually read long introductory texts from your soon-to-be-contacts. Chats are faster, UI supports switching styles on the fly, and audio is a lot better than before.
On behalf of the whole Linux team I thank you for patience and hope you stay with us to discover how much more surprises we have up our sleeve. Let’s talk!
PS: This is how to enable screen sharing once you’re in a call.
