Call Recording – As our customers are expanding the ways that they are using Biba throughout their workday – the feature requests keep coming in. This month we’ve added instant call recording. Anyone on a call can start an audio recording. The person who starts the recording will get an MP3 file of the recording after the meeting has ended. Look for additional recording features including screen recording over the summer.
Meeting Chat – Business Messaging has been part of Biba from the beginning. This month we made it easier to chat with people while in a meeting. Instantly start a Group Chat from a Meeting and message All Invited Callers or All Present Callers. Because Messaging is all integrated with Biba, your chat will still be available, even after the meeting ends. Also all of the Biba chat features, including attachments, are available for Meeting Chat.
Even Better Echo Cancellation – Echo on a call can be super annoying (really, does anyone ever want to hear themselves talk). This month we spent a lot of time testing to support a wider number of headsets. We also improved our mic and and speaker detection for Windows, Android, iPhone 5 and Mac to reduce echo and provide even better audio quality.
Getting Started – In v2.7 we’ve made it easier to getting started with BIba. We’ve updated the registration flow so that new users just download the app on Mac, Windows, iOS or Android and complete a quick in app registration – that’s it! You will also see more in app help screens as well as tooltips to make it easier to navigate in Biba.
Better Mute – “Muted” notifications display and show until dismissed. Easily switch windows and be reminded you are on mute while on a call. An audio cue also plays when a person is remote muted along with the visual reminder.
All Company Room – Some of the most helpful (and yes, fun too) chats at Biba have taken place in our “Biba All Company” Room. When a domain is claimed we will automatically create an All Company Room and add all of the users from that domain to the room. Any future new users to the domain will also automatically be added as they join Biba.
