Schedule live streams to external platforms with StarLeaf schedulers for Office 365 and Outlook Exchange
With StarLeaf Scheduler for Office 365 and Outlook Exchange, you can now create a stream of a StarLeaf meeting to a third-party platform such as YouTube or Vimeo. Live streaming is useful if you want to allow a wide audience to view a live meeting, discussion, or company update.
When you schedule a StarLeaf meeting from your calendar, select Live stream to external platform and enter your Stream URL and key.
For more information about live streaming to external platforms, go here.
Connections through proxies on StarLeaf for Windows are now possible in beta version. For more information, go to Proxies and video conferencing.
You can now have video meetings, content sharing, and instant messaging on your Chromebook, using StarLeaf for Android.
For information on how to install StarLeaf on your Chromebook, go to StarLeaf for mobile and tablet.
Operating system: Chrome OS with Android 6.0 or later
Some older Chromebooks do not include Android, so are unable to run StarLeaf

|29752||In a previous version, for a small number of users with multiple calendar subscriptions in Office 365, scheduling StarLeaf meetings was not possible even though the add-in was installed. This issue has now been fixed and these users can schedule StarLeaf meetings from their Office 365 calendar as normal|
|29539||In certain circumstances, when an invitee responded to a meeting invite with accept/reject, this response did not always show in the StarLeaf app and a question mark was shown beside the invitee’s name. From 6.8, if an invitee responds to an invite, the person who invited them will see their acceptance or rejection in StarLeaf.|
|29146||Improvement to the profile picture that appears for audio-only Guest Join users in a video meeting.|

|30514||In previous versions, when you selected New chat and entered the name or email of a person that was not in your contact list, you should have received the option to send an invite but this did not appear.
