Features, features, features - that's the theme of our first major HoloMeeting update. Among the new features that we've added is a Camera feature for remote assistance & maintenance use cases as well as the ability to sketch collaboratively using the Freehand Draw feature. We're still only just into 2018 but it is full steam ahead with HoloMeeting and what it can bring to business.
We have been swiftly adding new features and updates over the past few weeks in order to increase the overall functionality of HoloMeeting. We have now, however, moved to a fortnightly update schedule. As such, the next update will be released on Friday, 2nd of February 2018.
