New in this release:

In other news, we will continue adding quotes to our release notes because we think *you* are awesome and deserve inspiration / joy.
One of our heroes is Brené Brown (go YouTube her videos! she is as great in person as you'd hope she'd be!).
In her book Daring Greatly she writes:
“When we stop caring about what people think, we lose our capacity for connection. When we become defined by what people think, we lose our willingness to be vulnerable. If we dismiss all the criticism, we lose out on important feedback, but if we subject ourselves to the hatefulness, our spirits get crushed. It's a tightrope -- shame resilience is the balance bar -- and the safety net below is the one or two people in our lives who can help us reality-check the criticism and cynicism." — Brené Brown

Ratings and Reviews
Very good app
Very good app as the 4 and 5 star reviews already said. Good video quality and very little lagging, maybe 1-2 seconds. I was on the same wifi network. Thank you for the great app. For those 1 star reviews, which complained about being forced to share contacts, as the developer said, you can opt out by following these steps: tab "Enable Contacts" button--notice that there is no option to skip here. Tab "Don't Allow" at the next popup, it should then take you back to the previous Enable Contacts screen. Now, you should see "Skip" below the blue "Enable Contacts" button. I found it worked for version 1.2.11.
Very good with minor problems
I a agree with the previous rater that Squad has great potential beyond social media. In addition to academia, it can be used by real estate agents to show details of listings without their clients going to the agent’s office. Repair people may find it useful.
The phone and split-screen functions work quickly and well. The phone function appears to work quicker than FaceTime. Setting up a view of the caller’s screen is easy.
I have a problem moving between views on my side of the app. But that’s minor.
Great App, With Drawbacks
This app is amazing! I love the ability to share my screen through video call. On the other hand, It is very slow when you do. It makes the shared screen pixelated and laggy. It’s also heated up my phone a bit and drains the battery like crazy. I’m sure that this will improve as new versions come out, so I’ll keep using it for now! Anything the developers can do to make the video call and screen sharing a simpler process for the phone would launch this app’s quality forward a lot.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
