This release resolves an issue where in-room audio could be heard during audio settings when entering a room, or an avatar could already appear in a meeting room.


Change the Audio Settings View when Entering a Meeting Room

When entering a conference room using the following method, the audio settings screen will not be displayed when you enter the room, and you will enter the conference room with the microphone turned off.

  • When you are taken directly to the conference room using the intercom
  • When you enter a conference room as a guest from the conference room invitation link
  • When you enter the conference room from the conference room URL (https://app.ovice.com/ws/◯◯/@room_id-xxx)
