For many years, Linphone has been one of the most active communication software in the open source world. Originally focused on voice, additional functionalities were rapidly added, like video, instant messaging (IM) and presence.
Over the past year, most of our internal development resources have been dedicated to the big challenge of developing Linphone’s own implementation of group Instant Messaging.
After several months of intensive engineering work, the whole Linphone’s team is very pleased to announce that Beta versions for Linphone iOS and Android are now available to test this exciting function !
Source code has been updated to match iOS upgrade and be compatible with innovative IphoneX design. Video quality has also significantly been improved, thanks to our new algorithm for codec bitrates adaptation to the available bandwidth.
Our engineering team intensively worked in the past few months on the development of our new Linphone 4.0 app for desktop platforms. We are glad to announce that this new version has officially been released on June 14!
