Latest Circuit Sprint

And just like that, it’s 2020 – another year has flown by. Last year Circuit evolved and grew hugely; new whiteboarding features opened up collaborative drawing during calls, new language support for Dutch and Portuguese brought Circuit to new users and PDFs became available to read in Circuit so as not to waste time downloading and reviewing in a new browser. To make the user experience even easier (and more fun!), 14 new ringtones were added, the option to snooze your account for an unlimited time was introduced and you can pop out conversations into separate windows for ease cycling through different streams.

Our end of 2019 blog sums up all these enhancements and many more that were made over the course of the year – remind yourself of them here.
