Coming soon to healthdirect Video Call:
New Pre-call Screen for health service providers
There will soon be a new pre-call screen for Video Call account holders once they click the Join button to join a patient or client. This modal will allow the host to check their device settings prior to the consultation starting, including mic, camera and speaker selections. You will be able to mute your mic, turn off or switch your camera prior to entering the call should you desire.
You will also see a preview of your video feed and can select the level of blur in your background, when this becomes available in the future, before joining the call with your patient or client.
|This example shows the screen that will be presented to health service providers once they click to Join a call. You can check or change your device settings by clicking on the mic, camera and switch camera icons.
Please note: while you are on this screen your patient will be waiting in the call until you click on Join Call.
Group Room enhancements
We will continue to introduce further functionality enhancements to video calls in Group Rooms. Group Rooms were recently introduced to the Video Call service and allow up to 20 participants to join a call. These enhancements will include the capability for participants to raise their hand. Group Calls will be added as an option in the Waiting Area once the enhancements have been made.
