We’re excited to announce that we’ve released Adobe Connect Mobile 2.2 for iOS and Android devices, providing several enhancements over our 2.1 client. With the new release, we’ve continued to focus on enabling the ability to fully host meetings from any device, as well as enable mobile learning. Here’s a closer look at the key enhancements we’ve added in the latest update.
Widescreen (16:9) webcam viewing support
In Adobe Connect 9.1 (released August 2013) we enabled better overall video quality with the display of webcams in widescreen (16:9) format. With Adobe Connect Mobile 2.2, we’ve extended this to mobile, enabling users to view webcams in widescreen format as well. (Note that webcam video remains in 4:3 format when shared from mobile.)
Manage audio conferencing from all devices (not just tablets)
While the majority of features for hosting, presenting, and interacting are available across both tablets and smartphones, managing the audio conference was not available from smartphones or small form factor devices until now. With version 2.2, you can start or stop the audio conference bridge, VoIP, or both, for even more control.
Enhanced mobile learning, with additional quiz types in virtual classes
In Adobe Connect Mobile 2.1, we enabled support for learners to join virtual classes on mobile devices, and take courses (in Adobe Presenter format) with tracked quiz results. In addition to the multiple choice, true/false, and matching question types supported, version 2.2 now supports fill-in-the-blank and hot spot questions, adding an even greater level of interactivity for learners on mobile.
Optimized support for high-definition Android and iOS Retina displays
Adobe Connect Mobile 2.2 has been optimized to support high-definition Android and iOS Retina displays, providing better usability and picture clarity on these devices.
