Live Audio Streams
The podcast application (both mobile and web-based) now have the ability to receive and play a live audio stream. When a live audio stream begins, the audience will be informed via push notification if they are not already in the application. If the user is in the application, a persistent banner will appear to announce a live audio stream is in progress. Clicking on either the push notification or the banner will launch a player to listen to the live audio stream. Contact email@example.com if you wish to stream live audio to your podcast audience.
Group statistics are now available
Group data is now sent in the analytics stream from the podcast mobile app and Web app. This will allow for Group-specific information to be displayed in the Analytics Dashboards in coming releases of the PMC.
Beta version of Podcast Web Application available
A web version of the podcast application is available to consume secure podcasts on your laptop or desktop. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to enable the Podcast Web Application.
View Invited Users
The Podcast Management Console (PMC) now gives a dropdown with choices of “Active” listeners or “Invited” listeners. Selecting “Invited” will only show listeners that have been invited, but have not accepted the invitation.
PMC won’t allow SSO Group editing
The Podcast Management Console will no longer allow Group membership to be edited if the Group was defined by an SSO connection to an Identity Provider (IdP). The PMC now relies completely on the SSO connection to manage SSO Groups.
Episode description links helper text
In the PMC, clarified description and hints on Episode descriptions to let administrators know that any URL in the description would be converted to a clickable link for listeners.
PMC allows creating private Shows with no Groups
A Show may now be marked as “Private” with no Groups assigned. This is a good way for administrators to keep a Show invisible until it is ready to publish.
