What's New

Noor 2.1.120

May 19, 2022 - Make sure that your desktop app is updated as well to Desktop v2.0.24
  • 🎥 Video over screen share: Finally you can share your smiling face while coding in a strange position 🥹 This was requested a lot!
    • notion imagenotion image
    • Make sure you’re on the latest version and enable both your screen and camera to try it out. It’s currently in beta so let us know what you think!
    • Tip: Don’t enable video chat if you’re +3 people over a screen.
    • Why? (technical description)
      Although we reduce camera quality to save bandwidth, our p2p architecture (that makes the lowest latency possible) would require a lot of bandwidth to do many cameras and a screen.
  • Fix camera view not remembering its position if it’s too close to the top
  • Fix camera view being unexpectedly resized if moved to another display
  • Fix a critical issue where you couldn’t hear anyone due to having your speaker deafened while screen sharing (this was causing a lot of headache for users!)
  • Fix replies to images and GIFs in chat showing an empty embedded message
  • Fix an issue with opening the image someone is viewing by clicking on their avatar in the top call bar
  • And a lot of small fixes across the screen sharing, video chat, voice connection, and the sidebar that mentioning them would make this list huge…
