Previous Releases

March 3, 2017 Version Number: 4.0.25628.0302

New and enhanced features

  • Chat features
    • Non-verbal feedback
      During a presentation, participants can provide non-verbal feedback without interrupting the flow of the presentation. Participants have the ability to raise their hand, signal yes or no, indicate to go faster or slower, and use emojis. The host has the ability clear all non-verbal feedback indicators at any time. 
    • Co-hosts can add and moderate breakout rooms
      When a host or co-host join a breakout room, they both have moderator privileges in the breakout room. The host has additional "breakout room management" privileges. When they return to the main session, they resume their roles as host and co-host. A co-host who joins a breakout room can view the attendee list. A co-host can  join/leave any breakout room, but cannot start/stop the breakout room, assign user, move other users between breakout rooms, or broadcast message. 
  • Chat features
    • Kubi integration with Zoom on iOS devices
      The Zoom app connects to the Kubi device before a Zoom meeting begins on the connected iOS device. 
    • Administrators can prevent chat users from sending files
      If the administrator of your account chooses to disable the option for File transfer and screen capture, the Chat text entry area will not include buttons for Screen Capture, Send Picture, and Send File.

Resolved issues

  • If a Zoom client using Kubi joins a meeting, and the host leaves the meeting without assigning another host, rather than ending the meeting, the Zoom client using Kubi automatically leaves the meeting after 2 minutes.
