Fuze Mobile 5.9
Fuze Mobile 5.9 introduces the following new features:
We’ve redesigned the Settings screens in Fuze Mobile to help you more easily understand and configure Fuze Mobile to suit your needs. Additionally, we’ve added new Audio settings to the Meetings section that enable you to set the audio configuration that is used when you join meetings.
Additionally, we've expanded the Meetings settings to help you join with your audio switched off to, for example, avoid acoustic feedback if you are near other devices that are also in the meeting.
See the Settings section of the Fuze Mobile help for more information about settings.

You can now view previews in Chat conversations of files shared from both Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive.
