Fuze provides powerful features to display and share the following with others:
- Your audio, and the audio of your online participants (if enabled)
- Your HD video, and the Rich media content such as HD videos and high-resolution images

- Your computer's entire screen/desktop for demonstrating tools, collaborating with participants on a document or Excel spreadsheet, or whatever your teaching or discussion needs require.
Fuze Meeting, or Fuze, has released a major upgrade which includes a redesigned user interface that provides a consistent Fuze experience across all devices. The 'New Fuze' client (or app) is now available for Windows, Mac, iPad, and iPhone users; the Android app is coming soon.
What's Changed in the New Fuze?
Watch a Fuze-led training session for an overview of the New Fuze layout and changes to how attendees interact with Fuze. Please click the recording link to view: https://www.fuzemeeting.com/replay_meeting/dc0aa93d/6471311
- Focus on Visual Interaction through Video Conferencing - When you begin a meeting, the attendees' video panels are shown full-screen until you chose other content to share, such as showing your desktop or files that you uploaded to the meeting. When sharing content, the video panels of meeting participants will now display across the top of the screen.
- Check Camera/ Mic BEFORE Entering a Meeting - Fuze now lets users select their video/ audio settings before joining a meeting. Users can decide whether to allow their video or just a photo of themselves to be shown to other attendees. Users who opt not to display their video/ photo will see their initials instead.
- New Options for Chat - Private Chat is now easier because it allows you to select an Attendee's Avatar to chat with them. No more embarrassing private comments sent publicly! The Group Chat feature lets you chat with everyone in the meeting as before but now displays the photo of an Attendee next to their message.
- Automatic Updates to the Fuze client - Upgrades to the Fuze client will be applied automatically when you exit Fuze, no user intervention required (Windows and Mac users). If a Fuze client upgrade is available, when you close the Fuze client you will see a message that Fuze is upgrading. This keeps you current with the latest features and bug-fixes!
While the Windows and Mac clients look very much the same, there are some differences in how the two clients function right now. Please click to view a list of differences between the New Fuze client for Windows and for Mac.
How Do You Get the New Fuze on Your Computer or Device?For your SLU-managed Windows PC:
- Customers with SLU-managed PCs that had the legacy Fuze client installed were pushed the upgrade to the New Fuze for Windows client on August 13, 2014. This includes all classrooms, event spaces, and individual user's computers.
- Customers who currently don't have Fuze installed can contact their IT Service Desk to request the New Fuze installation.
- Please note: The New Fuze for Windows client requires the Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework to be installed on your computer.
