TeamSpeak 3 Final Released, Android, iOS Versions
I cannot really recall when I first started using TeamSpeak to communicate with my mates in the evening. Must have been around the time when Unreal Tournament was actively played by hundreds of thousands of players. Despite some competing products, like Ventrilo, Skype or BC it was TeamSpeak that I kept using throughout the years. The team developing the communication platform has just released version 3 final of the software.
TeamSpeak 3 is a rewrite of the original TeamSpeak Classic and TeamSpeak 2. The new version boasts new and improved features, for instance cross-platform support, better latency and performance or a powerful SDK to make use of the TeamSpeak core in other programs and applications.
Listed in particular on the TeamSpeak website are Improved Voice Quality and Latency, Stunning 3D Sound Effects, Powerful Permissions System, Improved Security and Privacy and Firewall Friendly File Transfers.
- Improved Voice Quality and Latency - This includes new codecs and automated features like advanced noise reduction, echo cancellation or automatic microphone adjustments.
- Raising the Bar - TeamSpeak now supports Logitech G-keyboards.
- Stunning 3D Sound Effects - You can now place other TeamSpeak users anywhere in three-dimensional space, for instance to link that position to their position in a game, a conference call or presentation.
- Powerful Permissions System - Group permissions are more flexible under TeamSpeak 3
- Improved Security and Privacy - A new authentication system that is identity and server based.
- Friends and Foes - You now have access to a friends and foes list to track users and play custom sound events when they come online.
- Firewall Friendly File Transfer - Files can now be uploaded and downloaded more effectively if the feature is enabled on the server.
More interesting than this, at least for some TeamSpeak users, are client releases for the Android and iOS platform. TeamSpeak Mobile clients are now (or soon) available in both the Android Marketplace and Apple Store.
