TD;DR : Just #AWESOME stuff that you will like.


The Android Dev and QA teams have been hard at work making sure we published another #AWESOME release!

In addition to the major feature set listed below, the team also brought the size of the app down almost to 1/3 of the previous size!!!!!!! KUDOS!!!!

It will take a few hours for this to propagate to all of the Google Play servers, but the update will be automatic.


In this release:


-  Small screen Support
-  LDPI devices Support
-  Moderator indicator on upcoming meetings 
-  Enable/Disable upcoming meeting notifications (Community and Google Play customer request)
-  Changes for devices w/ back camera only (cheaper android tabs)
-  On boarding card refresh issue
- Support for Android Lollipop

... squashed many BUGS 


Onward and Upward,

I'm loving your app development on iOS and Android but I wonder why I can't install the Android app on my Kobo Arc tablet. It's certified to use Google Play, so I wonder if you've got a requirement for GPS (surely accidental?) that's preventing the store from letting me install it.

I was in a hotel for most of last week and being able to use my tablet instead of my laptop (or iPhone) would have been a lot more convenient.

We look at two factors:
- Android version (4.0 and above )
- Processor type (must support NEON instruction set)

I am looking at the characteristics of the Kobo Arc  and it is vague on the actual processor type.  But I would assume that this processor does not support the neon instruction set.  
We need this instruction set to render the complex video compositing, etc.

Thanks, Tedd. I've used the device with Hangouts, Skype, and Lync 2013. It'd be a real shame if BlueJeans alone won't work on it.

The device is running Android 4.1.1. Does this clarify processor details at all? http://www.trustedreviews.com/kobo-arc-review

Yup, just what I thought.  No NEON support.  It may work with other services, but we are doing some awesome compositing and drawing so we need the instruction set.
