Improvements to Recording

  • If cloud recording fails in the middle of a session, the desktop app will rely on local recording as a backup. Users will see an "Unable to record to the cloud" message that prompts them to save the recording to the computer.endpoint8370_recording.png

     

 

Improvements to GoToMeeting Installations and Automatic Updates in Per-Machine Installations

  • Improvements have been made to the installation and updating flows when the product is installed per machine, including: 
    • Automatic updates will now remove old and unused builds installed per machine.
    • MSI installer will now install files only into the Program Files\GoToMeeting folder (previously it installed some files into the Program Files\LogMeIn\GoToMeeting folder).
  • Shortcuts in the Start Menu\Citrix folder have been removed.

Improvements to Searching "GoToMeeting" on Mac

  • Mac users will now only see one GoToMeeting application result when they search for the app in the Finder, the spotlight search, and in the launchpad. 

Removal of Whiteboard Warning for Mac

  • Whiteboard for Mac is being removed on December 1, 2018 due to low usage. Until the feature is removed, Mac users will be notified with a "Whiteboard Sharing Retires Soon" message when they share a whiteboard. Learn more
  • Note: This feature has already been removed on Windows.

Bug Fixes & Minor Changes: 

Fix for Network Problems Causing App Crash

  • Previously, when Windows users who had network issues attempted to start or join a meeting, the desktop app would go into a "in session" state and not respond to subsequent join attempts for up to a minute. Now, the desktop app will launch an error "Network Connectivity" message.

Additional fixes & minor changes:

  • Fix for Mac users experiencing an invalid Screen Sharing pane when multiple attendees attempted to share screen at the same time 
  • Fix for Mac attendees seeing the "Unable to recording to the cloud" message intended for only the organizer 
  • Fix for the app intermittently crashing on Mac
  • Fix for the app being stuck in the join flow when there was an issue with downloading a matching build 
  • For troubleshooting purposes, advanced technical users can now access the "Audio Statistics" window by clicking Audio Statistics in the Control Panel drop-down menu
  • Fix for the app being slow to quit from the Dock if it was in an App Nap state 
  • The Audio Preferences window will open for users who have high contrast mode enabled and click Sound Check while in session
