Upload, revise and review your documents privately in the new Library mode
As a room member, you can now enter the room via the new "View Library" feature to access your collaboration or learning materials privately, any time you want, without needing your room admin (ie meeting host, trainer or teacher) to be in the room with you. Best of all, everyone belonging to the same room can access the materials concurrently, privately - without interrupting one another - as videochat is disabled in the Library mode. So you can read, review, revise, annotate, type, sketch, do your assignment, upload completed assignment online, etc in the Library mode without worrying about accidentally 'bumping' into your co-learners or co-workers!
All changes and additions you make to the resources in the Library mode are autosaved, so that you can always access the most updated versions when you resume live collaboration.
If you enter a room for a live collaboration session earlier and your room admin is not in yet, you will be redirected to the Library mode where you can read your materials while waiting for the room admin to enter the room.
When your room admin enters the room while you are in the Library mode, you will be prompted with a message in a pop-up dialog box as to whether you wish to switch to 'Live Collaboration' or remain in the Library mode for your personal revision.
