Canary Rolls Out Desktop Streaming, Two-Way Live Talk and New Watch Live
Canary has today announced the launch of three new features i.e. an optimized Watch Live experience that reduces latency and delivers true, real-time viewing, two-way Canary Talk for live conversations, and a Web app update that enables desktop streaming.
Previously, users were experiencing a delay of about 5 seconds between what they saw in the Canary app and the activity that was actually occurring in an environment. But with the new and improved Watch Live experience in v2.7.0, latency has decreased, giving you a virtually real-time view into your home. The new Watch Live experience will be rolling out over the course of this week.
Starting with 2.7.0, Canary Talk is available for Canary All-in-One users with Membership, and in September, Canary Flex will be enabled for users with Membership. The feature allows you to communicate through your Canary app with the people (or pets) in your home. To use Canary Talk, just tap and hold down the microphone button when you’re watching live, and your voice will be broadcast to your home right through the Canary app.
Last but not the least, all Canary users with Membership can now use the Web app to to stream live video and view recorded events from a desktop or mobile browser. To use desktop streaming, just head to my.canary.is and tap Watch Live on the device of your choosing.
The new Web app and Canary Talk are included with Canary Membership, which also features 30-day video storage, incident support, an extended device warranty, and more. For more information, click here.
