We're always rolling out updates that contain new features and capabilities to ensure customers get the most of Dialpad Meetings.
Launch Dialpad Meetings to take advantage of the latest additions. You'll also discover some bug fixes to improve reliability. Dialpad Meetings is made to live at the center of your business communications.
Let's take a look at the major improvements made to our business communications platform every month.
Dynamic view improvements | Dynamic view is now available for everyone! You can now view more than 16 participants on the Dynamic View layout when organizing a conference call for a huge group.
Call recording greeting update | Don't want your meeting to have a 'This call is being recorded' prompt? No problem, we've added a new setting that allows you to turn the audible call recording greeting on and off.
Summary email update | We revamped our call summary email so that it doesn't display too much personal information. We know how important (and confidential!) phone numbers are, so we've removed them from the subject line.
Mic and camera improvements | We shortened the delay for camera and mic activity when joining a meeting.
Dark Mode | We added Dark Mode to Dialpad Meetings! Choose to view your favorite virtual meetings in Light or Dark Mode, or have it automatically update based on your system preferences.
Our team updated a lot of behind-the-scenes functionality. We’ll return next month with more high-profile product updates.
Improved Meeting Entry | Gone are the days of fussing with your background and headset volume when you arrive at a meeting. We've revamped the entry process by removing any unnecessary steps when you join a meeting. Now, you and your guests can effortlessly configure your audio, video, and virtual backgrounds before you join the meeting.
New Default Settings | You talked, we listened! Based on User feedback and the frequency of settings customization, we've updated the following settings to be the default behavior.
- Auto-expand chat on the first message — expands the chat window as soon as the first chat message is sent
- Allow capture of custom actions — allows custom action item details to be noted in the Meeting history
Rebrand | Dialpad Meetings is so much more than your basic virtual meeting software. Dialpad's proprietary Ai improves every aspect of our product, and we feel it's only fitting to have the product name reflect it. Dialpad Meetings is now Ai Meetings!
Internal and External Meeting Filters | Learn more about who your company is meeting with by filtering your meeting data by Internal or External participants (or, view both!)
Faster join time | We reduced the join time by one second!
Separate Intel and Apple M1/M2 app versions | We now offer two separate builds for Intel and M1/M2 architecture:
- On the download page, Users have the option to choose between Intel and M1
- When you update the app, the correct build will be downloaded automatically
Self-View options on all layouts | Self-view options are now available across all the layouts and not uniquely in dynamic views.
Waiting Room Improvement | Waiting room participants are automatically moved to the new waiting room when the earlier meeting is over. Previously, whenever someone was in the waiting room and the meeting room ended, the waiting participants were kicked out.
Meeting duration logs to Salesforce | We have started sending call duration information in Salesforce so that it can be logged to your records. Now, when a Meeting ends, the corresponding task receives the Meeting Duration information in seconds.
Guest Mode | Mobile users can now join a Dialpad meeting without the fuss of creating an account or signing-in by joining the meeting as a Guest on the mobile apps.
New and Improved Bottom Bar | We've launched our improved Dialpad Meetings controls to all Users! This update places the functions you need at your fingertips — organizing features in a more cohesive manner and making it a piece of cake to configure your microphone and camera. Learn more about your new and improved bottom bar here.
Increased Chat File Size Limit | We have increased the file upload limit to 50MB from 15MB while sharing images via chat.
Video Recording Links in Salesforce | Salesforce activity now consists of video recording links! Previously, we only sent audio recordings and call summary links (when available), but now you can access the full video recording.
New and Improved Bottom Bar EAP | We're always looking to make your meetings easier and more intuitive. We've launched our Early Access Program for the new and improved bottom bar!
Participant Search | All meeting participants can now easily search and find conference participants from within the participant panel.
Meeting Delegation for Google Calendar | Dialpad Meetings now enables users to schedule meetings on behalf of others in Google Calendar. Meeting delegation allows for one-click scheduling, ensuring personal meeting rooms are used, and that the Executive has full editing permissions.
Customizing Call Summary | Meeting Organizers can now set a name to anonymous participants in the call summary (ie those who joined with only a phone number, and no name). Earlier it was only possible in the participant panel during an ongoing call.
Dialpad's Voice Intelligence is now Dialpad Ai | With built-in speech recognition and natural language processing, Dialpad Ai delivers insights and automates workflows across employee and customer experiences. You'll now see our beautiful Ai logo where you previously saw the Vi logo.
