Remote Work Is Better with New Video Conferencing
Video calling registered tremendous growth in usage since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. Teams work remotely now more often. They are either forced by the circumstances, or they found it more convenient for them. Video conferencing became a crucial part of an everyday schedule. So why would you pay for separate Zoom, Skype, or Google Meet software? If you can have a world-class video conferencing in your team communication software where it belongs?
Samepage goal is to bring to you an excellent video calling environment that nicely blends into our all-in-one team communication platform. That's why we invested the last few months into improving the stability, reliability, performance, design, and overall user experience of our video calling platform.
So What's New?
Improved stability, reliability, and performance
Video calls aren't cheap. We built ours to be cheap for end-users, so there are no video calling fees even in our free tier. But there must be a trade-off, and it's the performance. Video call happens between the end-users without any intermediate server we would need to pay for. As the number of participants grows, it eventually results in poor performance. That's why we are commonly suggesting to cap the number of participants to 8. When streaming video, we even recommended only 4.
Performance and stability were our primary goals while still keeping video conferencing for free without any fees. With the improved video calling, we doubled the previous limits. Making the built-in calls suitable for almost every remote meeting.
Video Calling Facelift
Overall the call panel got a modern look & feel. Buttons got reorganized, and the UI more blends into the Samepage design. You can also change the panel view to be minimized, normal size, or full screen. Whatever suits your current work.
