    • As of this release, service to support the SMS feature is limited to the United States and Canada.
  • When you finish entering the number, you can change the message in the "Enter text message" text box if your admin has configured your system to enable you to do so. Otherwise, you can't change the default message.

    Android (without editable text message):       iOS (with editable text message):
               

    • If the text message is editable and the room has PIN code, a message reminds you that you must tell the invited participant what the PIN code is.
  • Tap Send SMS.
    • The "Invite Participant" pop-up appears asking if you're sure you want to invite the participant to the call, and you must tap Send SMS again to send the invitation.
    • Once the user receives the SMS, they can open the link and join the VidyoConnect meeting. Depending on their server, they can join using VidyoConnect for WebRTC or using their mobile client.
  • Feature availability:
    • You can invite others to your call using SMS only if you’re a registered user who has launched the video call.
      • You can't invite other users if you're simply a participant or guest that has joined the call.
    • Currently, the SMS feature is available to VidyoCloud Health customers only; however, it will be rolled out to other VidyoCloud customers periodically. On-premises customers will be able to get these features in the near future.
      • Note: If you’re a VidyoCloud admin for a healthcare customer, new custom parameters that support this feature will be automatically pushed to your tenants. Do NOT modify or delete these parameters because doing so could prevent the features from working. If you want to change the parameters in any way, contact VidyoCloud Support first.

Access your contacts when inviting others to join your call via dial out or SMS

  • Starting with this release, you can access your contact list when using the dial out or SMS feature, making it much easier and faster to find the user that you want to invite to your call.

    • Select a country code by clicking the small arrow near the flag as you normally would when inviting a user to join your call via dial out or SMS.

    Android (matching contact names):               iOS (matching contact numbers):
             

  • Once you’ve selected the contact, you can proceed as you normally would when inviting a user to join your call via dial out or SMS.
  • Feature availability: Since the dial out and SMS features are available to VidyoCloud Health customers only, the ability to access contacts when using these features is likewise only available to healthcare customers.

New way to accept the User Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy

If you haven't tried it yet, we invite you to visit our VidyoConnect page to find out more about the VidyoConnect applications, the benefits of moving to our cloud services, and the plans we offer.

Whether you've been using VidyoConnect from its introduction or you're just switching over now, we're sure you'll love the new features we've added in this release:

    • French
    • German
    • Italian
    • Japanese
    • Simplified Chinese
    • Spanish
  • If your mobile device is set to one of these six languages, VidyoConnect automatically chooses that language for your VidyoConnect UI; otherwise, it defaults to English. 
  • Whenever you want to change the language of your VidyoConnect UI to one of these six languages, you can do so from your mobile device.

  • Need to make a business-critical video call while you’re at an airport, in your car, or simply running between offices? You can do just that with the VidyoConnect for Mobile outbound direct dialing feature. This new feature allows you to place direct calls from your VidyoConnect for Mobile app to your contacts on VidyoConnect for Desktop.

Resolved Issues

  • In this release, we’ve continued to improve the reliability and usability of the VidyoConnect app by resolving a number of issues.
