Product Release Notes August 2017

It’s that time again! Time to announce the latest features and improvements we’ve been working on since the last product release notes. Here’s what you can start using this month!

The Big Changes

  • Inline translation (Web App, iOS, Android) – After many requests from our clients, we’re thrilled to announce our newest (and most anticipated) feature—inline translation for posts and comments! Posts and comments can be translated in one click to the language of your phone or internet browser. The feature supports over 30 languages including Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Italian, and Arabic. This feature is available as a paid app in our Marketplace. Please contact your Customer Success Manager to activate it or request a demo.
  • Group details display stream access (Dashboard) – As part of our effort to make the Dashboard more scalable, we’ve added more details to a group’s page. Now you can see which streams a group has access to and view the group analytics in a simple click.
  • Increased file size in posts and chats (Web App, iOS, Android) – We have increased the file size limit to 250MB for file attachments in chats and posts, and to 500MB for videos shared by regular users. Videos shared by admins remain at a maximum limit of 2GB. Photo attachments are still limited to 10MB for both admin and regular users. Note: These changes are not available in our Swiss Data Center (subdomain.ch.beekeeper.io).
  • Localized the app in Portuguese, Czech, Japanese, and Traditional Chinese (Web App, iOS, Android) – To serve our growing international user base, we have translated the app interface to Portuguese, Czech, Japanese, and Traditional Chinese.
