daily-android

0.10.1

Added H.264 decode supports

Android devices can now decode H.264 media streams. This feature allows for iOS and Android interoperability for when iOS clients enable the adaptiveHEVC feature to send H.264 and H.265 hardware encoded media streams.

Beta: Custom track supports

daily-android adds beta support for sending and receiving custom tracks.

Added Owner controls for remote participant devices

Owners can now control the camera and microphone for other participants in call. This allows meeting hosts to better moderate conversations by muting participants and stopping unwanted microphone noise during a call.
