Lower latency and higher quality audio streaming

We've worked super-hard on reducing audio latency for Fluid connections. It was already low, but we've managed to cut the latency in half of what it was before. This means you'll have better sync between audio and video while working remotely.

For customers subscribed to Teams Enterprise edition, the quality of audio streaming for Fluid will automatically be increased to a level where the quality of the audio stream is virtually indistinguishable from uncompressed audio. This means higher fidelity audio when connecting to remote machines.

Observe Mode

Jump Desktop for Mac now supports a new Observe mode that prevents sending keyboard and mouse input to the remote computer. 

Great for when someone else is in the driving seat and you simply want to observe their actions.

To toggle Observe mode, connect to the remote computer and then click Remote -> Observe Only.

 

Stylus Support

Unleash your creativity. Jump Desktop now supports sending pressure, tilt and rotation information from a stylus to the remote computer. No drivers required.  

Requires Teams Enterprise subscription and Jump Desktop Connect 6.5.x. This feature is only available for the Mac at the moment.

View users connected to the remote machines

Jump Desktop lets you add computers to a team so that all members can access and share the computers. This feature raises a problem, i.e., multiple users trying to access the same machine.

Jump Desktop (Mac), now shows you if a remote computer has users connected to it. It also shows the emails of the connected users so that you can identify the users currently accessing it.

This feature is available for Teams Enterprise customers.

We have added helpful, but unobtrusive, indicators in the UI.

Jump Desktop macOS

"Occupied" computers have a distinctive red icon in the icon mode, hovering over the icon shows the connected users' emails.

The list view has a column for "Connected Users".

You can also take advantage of the "Occupied" and "Unoccupied" filters from the filter bar.

Dashboard

"Current Active Connections" card shows the list of computers to which users are currently connected. A subtle badge, with a red background, displays the number of connected users.

In the list of team computers, you can identify the computers to which users are currently connected from the red badge.

Visit the active computer's page to view the currently connected users details like their IP addresses.
