Mark as Unread ๐Ÿคฉ & Improvements to Onboarding




We know how it is, sometimes you just don't have the time to reply to messages right awayโ€ฆ but what if you already opened it? ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Now you can mark messages as unread so you can come back to them later and not lose them forever! ๐Ÿ•บ

You can access this option from the three-dot-menu at the top right of the chat pop-up, or clicking on the red "Mark as Unread" sign that shows above new messages ๐Ÿ˜




We've made it easier than ever to sign up and create a new Tribe account ๐Ÿ™Œ

Make sure to share Tribe with your friends & family so that they can enjoy this new web experience ๐Ÿš€

Various Fixes & Improvements ๐Ÿ”จ

We're back with more improvements to give you the best communication experience possible! ๐Ÿ•บ




We are now supporting Video Messages on Linux! ๐ŸŽฅ




We fixed an issue where (if you were on floating view) you would no longer see yourself on the call if someone shared their screen.




We worked on several small aesthetic and functional fixes within calls and VMs that should overall improve the user experience ๐Ÿ˜

These include:

  • Adding new icons for users' video states
  • Reducing the time notifications stay on the call window
  • Sidebar resizing being on the wrong side

Let us know what else you'd like to see next! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Fixed Away State Issue ๐Ÿ”จ




We had an issue where others would see you as online even when you had set yourself as "Away" on the app ๐Ÿ™ˆ

This is no longer the case, so you can feel safe taking a breather on Away mode ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Smaller update made with lots of love! Let us know what else you'd like to see ๐Ÿ˜„

Fixed Camera Issues ๐Ÿ”จ Improvements to calls ๐Ÿ™Œ




We fixed the issue where the camera light stays on even after turning it off ๐Ÿ”จ Don't worry, we're not watching you ๐Ÿ‘€




We've also worked on several small improvements to calls so that you can have a smooth experience no matter how many people are present ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Pictures and File Attachments ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ“Ž๐ŸŽ‰




You read that right ๐Ÿ˜Ž you can now attach pictures and files to messages!

Just click on the ๐Ÿ“Ž icon and select anything under 10MB to send over to your contacts ๐Ÿ•บ

We know many of you have been waiting for this ๐Ÿ˜„ it's time to start sharing more with Tribe!




It is now a lot easier to send us a message! We have added a "Get Help" button within the Profile menu as well as on the Mac OS top bar ๐Ÿ™Œ Click on any of them and message us instantly ๐Ÿ˜„ you can also keep using the "?" button at the bottom of the app of course.




More keyboard shortcuts have been added to the VM player ๐ŸŽ‰ you can now toggle fullscreen using the "F" key and call the user using the "C" button ๐Ÿ“ž

We hope you like these changes! Let us know what you think ๐Ÿง 

Stickie emoji surprise!

What happens when everyone on a call uses the same one? ๐Ÿ‘€

Various Fixes and Improvements ๐Ÿ”จ



  • The team continues to polish space pop-ups ๐Ÿš€ We fixed the issue where users were unable to scroll up in the space chat history.

  • An issue where you couldn't see old VMs was swiftly removed ๐Ÿฅท



  • We have made it easier for you to reach out to us through the app! ๐Ÿ“ข You can now click on "Get Help" from your profile menu to send us a quick message with any feedback or issues you may have been facing ๐Ÿคฉ

  • The Tribe web experience has also had several improvements! It is a lot easier to download the app and move the call over to desktop (without having to stop your meeting!)

Let us know what you think about these changes and what you'd like to see next! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Fixed Uploading Avatars ๐Ÿ•บ




We had an issue where new avatars would not upload and users would just show their initials instead. This has now been fixed and you can all display your beautiful faces again ๐Ÿ“ธ




We also snuck in an additional fix to the space pop-ups ๐Ÿฅท We made sure that the emoji selector has the right sizing depending on how big the space pop-up itself is.

Let us know what you think about these changes!

Improvements to Calls and Spaces ๐Ÿ“žโœจ




We have been working hard to improve call performance. Now, using the active speaker mode or the grid view with fewer participants in the side bar, you'll reduce your CPU and bandwidth usage ๐Ÿ’ช

We have also made aesthetic improvements to the call window itself as well as the ringing pop-up




Space pop-ups have been acting a little crazy lately ๐Ÿคช (it's just a phase)

Pop-ups within the space should now no longer overlap with any part of the main space pop-up itself ๐Ÿ•บ

Got any thoughts or suggestions for us? Feel free to reach out and let us know! ๐Ÿ“ข

Improvements to Sticky Emojis ๐Ÿ™‹ Fixed Spaces ๐Ÿ”จ




Tired of your sticky emojis moving all over the place? Now they will stay in the same place on the reactions bar, even when deactivated ๐Ÿ˜„

Reactions will also not change their location on the bar! Previously, they would reorder based on frequency of use, but now they will only reorder until after the call is ended, so that no changes occur until you start a brand new call ๐Ÿ’ช




You now have access to the space menu again ๐Ÿš€ Previously, the menu would be inaccessible and you wouldn't be able to delete spaces after creating them.

You can now access the space menu normally, so you can clean up any spaces you no longer need ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿงน
