What's New in Version 6.14.1
General and stability improvements
It's not Skype nor is it for business.
Honestly, this service is a disgrace on the name of Skype. The service itself is a huge disappointment and any interchange with actual Skype is non-existent. There is no way to import skype contacts, skype users cannot easily interact with the service and external users have horror stories when trying to join meetings that require S4B.
When contacting customer support, the feeling is that any issues must be my fault and couldn't possibly be an application issue. When we shared screen recordings to prove our points, we were hearing an implication we edited the video to make our claims look valid.
We are switching back to GoTo Meeting rather than chance losing customers to an incapable on-line meeting tool. Microsoft should be embarrassed.
No longer works
I have SFB on my phone and iPad, both have stopped signing in. Not sure what happened but seems to be related to the last update. Was working great before.
Update: as of this last update, its working again.
Stepping up conference calls!
Call quality much better than in past.
