2022 Releases


 

VidyoConnect for WebRTC (Native) Version 22.2.0: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1381

 

VidyoConnect™ for WebRTC (Native) Version 22.2.0

What's new in this release? 

New compositor

  • VidyoConnect for Native WebRTC now utilizes a new compositor that provides better usability and functionality. For example:
    • The compositor UI now has two layouts.
    • The number of tiles displayed on tablets has increased.
    • Videos are never cropped.
    • The self-view tile has moved to the compositor.
    • The outgoing shared content is displayed the same way as the receiving shared content.
    • Epic media capture users are now advised to pin the tile.

Epic auto moderator PIN updates

  • We've updated the workflow for auto-provisioned Epic healthcare providers who join a call. Any auto-provisioned provider who now joins a call continues to be a moderator even when other auto-provisioned providers join. Prior to this release, only the auto-provisioned provider who joined the call last would have been the moderator.

When?

  • On-premises customers can download this version on April 27, 2022.
  • Cloud customers will be automatically upgraded in the coming weeks.

VidyoConnect for WebRTC (Native) Version 22.1.0: General Availability Release

Product Bulletin No. 1368

 

VidyoConnect™ for WebRTC (Native) Version 22.1.0

What's new in this release? 

Pop-up message for VidyoConnect for WebRTC users on iOS 15

  • With the release of iOS 15, Apple® introduced some critical issues for WebRTC users on Safari®. The issues are Apple limitations and are not a result of using VidyoConnect. Because of these issues, we've added the ability for you to configure a Warning pop-up that displays as the first screen for VidyoConnect WebRTC users joining a call with iOS 15 or later.



  • Admins can configure the contents of the message using the Settings > Feature Settings > Custom Parameters page on the Tenant Admin portal. For more information, refer to the "Configuring Custom Parameters" section in version 21.5.0 Rev. B of the VidyoPortal and VidyoRouter Administrator Guide.



  • For more information about Apple's iOS 15 issues, refer to the Critical WebRTC Issues on iOS 15 and the Alert: Audio Issues with Safari on iOS 15 articles.

Tooltips for the state of media devices

  • In this release, we added tooltips to let you know when any of your media devices—microphone, camera, speaker— is active or muted. The new tooltips also include the name of your device.
    • When you hover over the icon of a device that is muted, the tooltip displays the name of your device and this message: "Your [device type] is muted (click to unmute)."



    • When you hover over the icon of a device that is active (in use), the tooltip displays the name of your device and this message: "Your [device type] is active (click to mute)."


Less obtrusive buttons in Epic waiting room

  • If you are a healthcare customer using Epic, you'll notice we've improved the buttons in the Epic waiting rooms to make them less obtrusive:
    • Buttons now fade out after three seconds.
    • Buttons reappear when the user touches the screen.
    • Buttons have shadows to enhance visibility.

Performance improvements

  • In this release, we've updated internal processes for enhanced functionality and performance.

When?

  • On-premises customers can download this version on March 8, 2022.
  • Cloud customers will be automatically upgraded by March 18, 2022.

What's new in this release?

WebRTC participants now receive moderation

  • If you're a WebRTC user on a VidyoConnect call that has a moderator, you can now experience the same moderation functionality as users of the VidyoConnect desktop and mobile apps. For example, if the moderator mutes all users' mics and cameras, your devices will be muted; likewise, if the moderator disconnects all participants, you too will be disconnected.
    • We've added tooltips to help you with the new functionality. For instance, if the moderator mutes your mic, a new tooltip now indicates "Muted by moderator (click to unmute)."

Post-call URL

    • The URL opens in the same browser the participant used for the VidyoConnect call.
  • To use this feature, your Tenant Admin must configure it. For more information about configuration, refer to the Tenant Admin: Configuring a Post-Call URL article.

    • see a background image (with our without audio).
  • Providers can specify the video, audio, and background image content to play in the waiting room. They can also select different content to play in the waiting room for different calls.
