Every member of a group can communicate with other members in real time using both audio and video. All that is needed is a microphone and a web camera.

Here is a list of the main features:

  • Real time audio and video conversations
  • Share desktop applications
  • File sharing
  • Instant text messaging
  • Private rooms/channels for every group of users
  • High quality audio codecs with both mono and stereo
  • Push-to-talk and voice activation
  • Record conversations to disk
  • Standalone server for both LAN and Internet environments
  • User authentication with accounts
  • Accessibility for visually impaired

Having these features available makes TeamTalk an excellent choice for online presentations, attending meetings or just do every day chit-chat with friends or collegues, whether they are next door or around the globe.

What's New:

  • Fixed crash issue when receiving multiple voice streams
  • Two new sound events for transmit start/suspended
  • The connect dialog and host manager have been merged into one connection manager, accessed by pressing f2. This eliminates a lot of confusion, and also allows you to save entries more easily. As of version 5.1 classic, pressing f2 will automatically focus the list of saved servers. If you're one of those people who enters servers without saving them, now may be the time to start. you can still tab a couple of times to enter a server address manually.
  • The output and input volume sliders in the main window now have a default level of 50%. This means that at 50%, no gain will be applied at all. Unless there is a good reason to change these, you should leave them at defaults and adjust Windows microphone settings.
  • User volume and user gain have been merged. Pressing control+u on a user allows you to adjust their single volume control to your liking. The default for a user's volume is 50%.
  • Screen reader users on Windows will find that channel messages, user messages, and status bar messages, such as users entering or leaving a channel, are now automatically spoken through their screen reader instead of SAPI5.
  • For the audiophiles among us, Opus has replaced Celt. This means lower latency and better quality, as well as 48000 hz support. This will also save lots of bandwidth for everyone if administrators are smart about their channels' audio quality.
  • The client now has automatic gain control, on by default. I recommend testing this, as it can be problematic in the wrong environment. It can be controlled from the sound system tab of preferences.
  • Speaking of testing, audio loopback channels have been eliminated. Instead, join any channel and press control+4 on your own name to subscribe to your audio.
  • In the classic client, pressing control+g on a user will announce their online and talking state, and pressing this keystroke on a channel will announce whether it is password protected or classroom type. This is our equivalent to the icons next to channel and user names.
