We're so excited to tell you about some great new tv video calling features we recently released in early September. Our engineering team is constantly working to add new features, and capabilities, based on YOUR feedback, so please keep it coming!
Want make it very easy to call Mom? Just add her to Favorites! With a couple of clicks, now you can add contacts to your Home screen, allowing you to easily call them any time. Favorites should already have an ONSCREEN account, so we make it easy for you to send them an invitation text so they can download the app and register for the service.
We decided that we've built so much great Zoom functionality, that it should get it's own place in our navigation tab bar. With this new organization, you can just tap over to the Zoom tab and Join and Start Zoom meetings on your TV all from one place. Here in the Zoom tab, you'll also be able to easily see your logged in status, and now... your Zoom events!
Zoom Calendar Events
On the new Zoom tab, you're now able to give the ONSCREEN App permission to read your phone's calendar, and look for any Zoom meetings you might have scheduled for the day. Our smart app will analyze the calendar events, determine if you're a host or a participant and make it very easy for you to join your Zoom meetings on the Spark with just one click! If you're the host, the meeting will be started on your behalf, once you've logged in with your Zoom credentials.
Behind the Scenes Improvements
While not immediately obvious, we've upgraded our in-app navigation system so that moving from screen to screen is more natural and robust. This makes it easier for us to add more features in the future, so while this may not immediately look like a feature to you, we guarantee that you'll benefit from it!
