Chat Toasts πŸ₯‚ Totalizer πŸ”’ Edit messages πŸ“ and VMs on Spaces 🀯

HUGE upgrades are coming to Tribe! Check out what the team has been working on πŸš€




Want to have your entire Tribe see a Video Message? You can now send VMs to spaces!

Everyone with access to the space will see πŸŽ‰




Bad spelling? πŸ™ˆ Didn't quite say what you wanted to, perhaps?

You are now able to edit any of your messages to correct anything you'd like πŸ™Œ




Every now and then, you send an important message in the call chat and… NOBODY sees it πŸ˜…

We know this can be a frustrating experience, which is why we added Chat Toasts!

Now, every time you send a message on a call: a little pop-up will appear, letting everyone see your message πŸ•Ί




Last but not least, we bring to you: The Totalizer ℒ️

With the Totalizer, you'll be able to see how many people are in a meeting just looking at the new section on the top of the call window πŸ˜„

You'll also see how many people are using stickies, and who they are!


Let us know what you think about all these awesome changes coming to Tribe! πŸ‘«

Improvements and fixes πŸš€




We noticed the call icons were looking a little glitchy lately πŸ™ˆ We made sure that everything returned to its proper place and looks pretty as ever!




Feeling lonely in that space call? We added a function where if you join a space by yourself, the "Invite to Space" pop-up will appear, making it easier for you to bring your team in for a quick conversation 😁

Hope you like what we've been doing! We're always open to your wonderful feedbackπŸ‘‚

Better Speaker Events πŸ—£ Better Screen Sharing 😱




It is now easier to see who is talking during a call! The speaker will now flash purple so you never lose track of who's saying something πŸ•Ί




You can now minimize the presenter view when screen sharing 🀩 we know a lot of you needed the extra space when presenting πŸ™‡ that problem is now gone and done 😎




Apart from these awesome upgrades, we've also:

  • Improved download links for the app on both desktop and mobile browsers
  • Fixed an issue where a shared screen would look squished in a VM

New Video Message Tray πŸŽ₯ Call users on their phone 🀯




VM options could get a little confusing before πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« we know. That's why we added a tray that has everything neatly ordered for your use!

Just hover over the VM icon (below your profile picture and status) and have at it πŸ™Œ




You can now call users who are offline! 😱 If the person you are trying to reach has the latest Tribe mobile version on their iOS device, they'll see your call come in through their phone even if they're offline πŸ•Ί

Mark as Unread 🀩 & Improvements to Onboarding




We know how it is, sometimes you just don't have the time to reply to messages right away… but what if you already opened it? πŸ™ˆ

Now you can mark messages as unread so you can come back to them later and not lose them forever! πŸ•Ί

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 😁

Various Fixes & Improvements πŸ”¨

We're back with more improvements to give you the best communication experience possible! πŸ•Ί




We are now supporting Video Messages on Linux! πŸŽ₯




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 😁

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! πŸ™Œ

Fixed Away State Issue πŸ”¨




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

This is no longer the case, so you can feel safe taking a breather on Away mode 😎

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