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.
This update includes a new feature that performers and hosts can use when on stage, along with general bug fixing and performance improvements.
Sound Effects Bank
You’ll now find a bank of sound effects in the broadcast toolbar which can be played while on Stage.
There are five sound effect buttons that can be customised from a set library of sounds. You can access this library and choose your favourite sounds from the ‘config’ button on the far right of the broadcast toolbar, or from the ‘Audio Stage’ option in app settings. Simply tap on one of the buttons to view, play, and select the sounds. You can also hit the reset button to return the sound effects to the default 5 options.
We’ve made app performance improvements as well as other general bug fixes.
This part is hugely important because you are our eyes and ears. Your feedback can help fix an important issue or help make the correct decision when the answer is not clear. If you think you’ve found an issue, here’s what to do:
