What's new in version 8.0.1
This update brings remote support features, collaborative screen sharing and tons of bug fixes! To see these features in action and learn more open: Jump -> Settings -> Whats New.

* Collaborative screen sharing lets many users connect to the same desktop. Each user gets their own mouse cursor and can click and point without fighting over the same cursor. Great for editing documents together, presentations and tutorials!
* A new "Ask to share screen" button for unobtrusive remote support. Tap 'Ask' to have Jump ask your family/friend/colleague/customer if they want to start sharing their desktop with you. No passwords required!
* Secure Screen sharing links: Anyone can share their screen by sending you a simple link. You don't need to be an authorized remote access user on their machine. It's simple, quick and very powerful.
* Better mouse handling for physical and on-screen mice.
* Tons of bug fixes and stability updates.

Note: Collaborative screen sharing and remote support features requires Jump Desktop Connect 6.0 on the remote PC or Mac. Jump Desktop Connect 6.0 is a free app that users can install from https://jumpdesktop.com
