Introducing: Annotations πŸ– ✨

 

New

  

Annotations have finally made it to Butter! You can now draw on your screen while screensharing or presenting a PDF.

Here's some stuff to know about annotations:

✏️ Magic erase: The annotations work like a pointer that disappears after five seconds after you stop drawing.

🀝 Choose who can annotate: Only facilitators can annotate by default, but you can toggle on access for everybody to draw together!

🎨 Choose your style: Change the stroke thickness and color to your liking.

A highly requested feature that we hope you'll love!

Big update to screensharing ⚑️

 

New

 

Desktop

  

Screensharing has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. It's much smoother and makes it easier to:

✨ Move the dock: The screensharing dock is now moveable, so it'll never block your content.

😍 See more faces: Resize the video gallery to see up to 20 people at a time while you screenshare.

🍾 Pop out the agenda: See and control the full agenda from its own window while you're screensharing. You can pop out the Chat and Notes too!

This smooth new experience is only available on desktop, so download Butter for Desktop if you haven't yet.
