Today Feb 11, 2015, we released a new version, #1502.1. Here’s what it brings to you Business Hangouts users:
1 – Direct Access Buttons & Links
To start your Business Hangouts as a host or just enter the green room for changing settings, you don’t need to check into your emails any longer or open your calendar to grab the link, you can just start it from your BHO planner which serves also as a dashboard.
I.1 – For Scheduled Hangouts
Green room access and live BHOA start links. Green room access avoids the unnecessary creation of a G+ Event for a pre-event checking or setup.
I.2 – For Past Hangouts
Post Event room access.
Direct, handy link to the YouTube Video.
2 – Replace the YouTube video in the Post-Event Replay
Thanks to the new “Replace YT Video Link” feature, you can now download the recorded video of a BHOA, make any edits you want, upload it again on YT, and replace the original YT link with the new link, without changing the “meeting link” which has been communicated to the attendees.
This feature also opens the door to many other creative ways of using BHO as a Virtual Room with chat and other features to show any recorded video, which is not necessarily resulting from a HOA/BHOA.
3 – More Responsive Embeds
The iframe embeds are no more a fixed size. The BHO embeds automatically adapt to the iframe’s size. This makes the experience more responsive. More to come in this field in an upcoming release.
4 – Fixed Issues
4.1 – Horizontal scroll bar in the unified chat
Some long URL links were triggering a horizontal scrolling in the unified chat. Now long URLs are now wrapped to fit in the chat and avoid scrolling.
4.2 – Justify Center in the HTML editor
For customizing your registration page, under Customizations/ HTML detail; It’s now easy to change the left/right/center justify of the text.
5 – Duplicate Hangouts
And last but not least, you can now copy an existing past or scheduled Hangouts to re-use all the settings of that event for another new event.
Enjoy the new release and let us know how like it.
