What's New

Our boss always repeats that age old cliché, "Whales sure do love to sing." Ironically no one knows what it means, but I like to think that if we were whales, we'd be doing our best to help others find new ways to sing.

Enough stretching an analogy, let's talk shop. This update includes a host of fixes and minor improvements to the app. The Account tab and Settings screens have been redecorated a bit to improve the look and feel, and pretty much all of the main tabs have had various minor improvements akin to dressing up a room with nicely scented fresh flowers.

Perhaps an unknown pro tip, but you can immediately leave a reaction on a chat from a push notification. Push notifications can now be used to immediately leave any of the 9 available reactions on a chat, not just a select set. Lastly, iOS10 compatibility has been improved in the Agenda and Trivia features, video chat layout, and search functionality.

Did we miss something? Have ideas for the next release or release notes? Let us know!

And seriously, why whales? We're from St Louis, Missouri. The nearest whales are over 800 miles away; literally no one knows what it means. But we still play along like we do. ;)
