New Features and Enhancements

This release includes improvements to the meeting and desktop experience.

Meetings

  • File presentation. The presenter now sees a notification that they are sharing a file once the file appears on stage.
  • Internet Explorer. A new version of the audio and video plug-in is available. You will be prompted to update or download the plug-in (if you do not have it); after installing, restart IE.

Desktop app

  • The desktop app now remembers when you accept cookies.
  • Labs:
    • The GlobalMeet 5.0 meeting room toggle has been removed from the Labs tab.
    • The Labs tab no longer appears if there are no new features for you to try out. If a new feature becomes available, the tab reappears.

Meeting Settings

Meeting Settings is accessible from the desktop app (on the Settings > General tab, click Edit).

  • Audio Settings:
    • Manage Access Numbers. When choosing which numbers to include in meeting invites, you can now select all or deselect all available numbers.

    • Passcodes. By default, passcode changes for audio accounts with Enhanced Authentication (EA) are now disabled. (These accounts have 10-digit randomly generated passcodes.) Depending on your company’s security policy, passcode changes might be locked for other passcode formats.
  • Meeting room. If VRC is disabled for a meeting room or your company, the Room System Information section is no longer displayed.

Bug Fixes

This release addresses issues seen while in the meeting and desktop app.

Meeting issues

  • Connect Audio. Users were able to send additional change audio connection requests after requesting the meeting room to dial out.
  • File presentation. When hosts and co-hosts enter a meeting room after file presentation has already started, they do not see the presenter controls.
  • Join a meeting. Attempting to join a deleted meeting room, using an altered meeting link, or joining from a mobile device results in a blank GlobalMeet screen.

Desktop app issues

  • Home. If your Microsoft password changes, the Home tab is stuck on the loading screen instead of prompting for an updated password.

Known issues

  • Guests viewing a Windows 10 user sharing an Office app window may experience a frozen screen.

  • Fonts are rendering unexpectedly when files are presented.
  • Mac. Files created on Mac with embedded fonts fail to upload for file presentation.
  • Meeting Settings doesn't display correctly after an update.
