WOLF 10.12

What to Expect from Open Beta

It’s good to remember that Beta Builds are a pre-release version of the final software and may be unstable, lack features and generally not function as expected. It’s important you’re aware of this before participating. Open Beta can be fun and hugely rewarding, but it can also be frustrating. If you want to join in the process-welcome aboard! If the Open Beta is not for you, that's okay, too. You can change your mind at any time and return to the version you’re used to.

 

iOS and Android

Broadcast Bar

The new Broadcast Bar makes it easier to manage the mic and Stage, including being able to mute, drop the mic and, depending on your permission level, change the stage theme and mute others all from the Broadcast Bar. There is also the 'Push To Talk' feature which allows you to either hold the button to talk or 'lock' it to talk in hands-free mode.  

It's also super simple to switch back and forth between chat mode and the Broadcast Bar by toggling the new keyboard/DJ icon underneath the Stage.

When switching from DJ mode to Chat mode, the Push To Talk feature will still be accessible.

Achievements Revamp

Achievements are an important part of the WOLF experience so we’ve given them some love in this update to make them easier to view.

The main Achievements page has been restructured so you can now easily see the key information associated with each Achievement.

There are 2 views available: List and Grid (which you can see below).

Another element added to Achievements is that they all now have levels, which is also a feature of Group Achievements.

The Grid View also makes for good screenshotting and sharing your Achievements with friends. Humble bragging encouraged  

You’ll also be able to tap into specific Achievements to see the ‘celebration’ screen which, while looking so much snazzier, also makes it easier to follow progress on multi and scalable Achievements.

Welcome Pages and What’s New Pages (iOS)

We’ve introduced a new welcome experience to give new users an immediate taste of the festival waiting for them in WOLF.

We’ve also included a new ‘What’s New' page to give you an overview of the new features you’ll have access to when updating to a new version of WOLF.
