GoToAssist Seeit App for Android (v6.1) Release Notes

Released October 27, 2015 (PST)


  • Support for background mode
  • Audio muted upon joining session

What’s New?

Support for background mode

  • The GoToAssist Seeit app can now be set to background mode and allow the session to resume when the app is brought back to focus (i.e., out of background mode) on a mobile device.  When this occurs, the technician will see a message on the technician web site informing them that the customer has placed the app in background mode, and the features available to them will be limited until the customer resumes use of the app.
  • If the customer is using an Android device to join the GoToAssist Seeit session and they set the app to background mode, the app will run silently in the background.  When the app is taken out of background mode, the last action that took place during the session (e.g., camera sharing, paused camera sharing, shared snapshot, etc.) will resume.

Audio muted upon joining session

  • When a technician connects to a customer in a GoToAssist Seeit session, the audio for both parties will be automatically muted upon joining the session.  This will prevent unwanted audio to be heard when immediately joining the session, and gives both parties preparation time if the technician chooses to record the session.  Previously (i.e. all versions below v6.0), the audio was automatically unmuted when the technician and their customer connected in a session.
  • To unmute the audio, the technician can click the Microphone icon  Mic in the top navigation of the technician website.  Likewise, the customer can tap the Microphone icon Mic in the top navigation on their Android device to unmute themselves.
