Say Goodbye to Zoom: Announcing Our New In-App Video Feature


Nicole Charpentier

Learn about our latest feature update: Embedded video platform.

We’re excited to announce the upcoming launch of our in-app video feature!

While we'll continue supporting the Zoom integration, this embedded feature allows VisitDays users and students to have a more streamlined and easy-to-use experience. Now, there's no need to worry about any other third-party platforms. 

With the embedded video feature, you can: 

  • Host breakout groups within your live sessions and make announcements across all groups at one time (i.e. to give a time warning or prompt a new discussion question)
  • Use picture-in-picture functionality to navigate to other website pages while still keeping the audio and video on
  • Access the live sessions from your phone with the same experience as on your computer
  • Assign a spotlight speaker to lead the live session
  • Use upgraded chat functionality to raise your hand or comment on the session
  • And more!

Preview some screenshots of the updates in action below.

In a session with a large group, you can highlight a main speaker to appear larger.

Example of a session without a main speaker and users' without video turned on.
As a session attendee, you can use the upgraded chat, 'raise hand' functionality, and preset emojis.

Picture-in-picture functionality allows users to navigate to other browser tabs while still using camera and microphone capabilities.
