This article applies to the Whiteboard Owl

Whiteboard Owl will automatically send over the air software updates to Owls that are connected to Wi-Fi and plugged into power over night.

If your Owl’s software is out of date, please see instructions for how to update your Owl's software.

Version 3.9.0.10

Release date: November 4th, 2021

Bug fixes:

  • Several bugs that caused the Whiteboard Owl to occasionally not show up in the Nearby Owls list were resolved.
  • If a user puts their Whiteboard Capture session in the background of their iOS device, either by viewing a different tab or opening a different app, the Whiteboard Capture session will no longer disconnect.
  • If a user’s computer goes into sleep mode during a Whiteboard Capture session, the Whiteboard Capture session will no longer disconnect.

Enhancements:

  • Improved Whiteboard Capture messaging to better reflect session status: “Active”, “Offline”, or “Waiting” to be connected to a session.
  • Improved passphrase visibility for current Whiteboard Capture session to prevent users from mistakenly joining previous sessions with autofilled passphrases.

Version 3.6.0.18

Release date: August 24th, 2021

Bug fixes:

  • Whiteboard Capture images will no longer be incorrectly cropped.

Enhancements:

  • Improvements were made to decrease the amount of time it takes for the Owl Connect icon to switch from faded to bold after flipping a Whiteboard Tag in rooms with substantial natural light.

Bug fixes:

  • If a user stands in front of the whiteboard while flipping a Whiteboard Tag, they will no longer be imprinted on the Whiteboard Owl’s video.
  • The Meeting Owl Pro will no longer reboot if the Whiteboard Owl’s video is toggled while the Owl Labs splash screen is loading at the start of a meeting.
  • If the Whiteboard Owl’s video is toggled Off in the Meeting Owl App, the Whiteboard Owl is disconnected from the Meeting Owl Pro, or if the meeting ends, the Whiteboard Enhance and Whiteboard Capture toggles will reset to Off in the Meeting Owl App.
  • Whiteboard Enhance will no longer fail if a Whiteboard tag is flipped partially outside of the Whiteboard Owl’s cropped area. 
  • If a Whiteboard Owl’s license is suspended due to missed payments, the Whiteboard Owl will no longer be able to enable Whiteboard Enhance or Whiteboard Capture.
  • If Whiteboard Enhance is toggled Off during a Whiteboard Capture session, Whiteboard Capture images will continue to update without the enhancement.
