We’re proud to announce our new playback page today with tons of great new features to make Haiku Deck better than ever. Here’s the run down:
New YouTube Video Playback
Deck creators can now embed YouTube videos directly into their decks. To learn how to include videos in your presentation, click here. If you’re viewing a presentation with a YouTube embed, you’ll notice a play button in the bottom right of the slide. Click to play the YouTube video from within the presentation!
New Loop and Auto Playback SettingsWant to set your presentation to automatically advance or loop? This is a feature request we hear frequently from customers who want Haiku Decks to automatically play at a trade show booth, on a lobby monitor, or even at a Pecha Kucha event. Click the gear icon on the playback page to access these controls.
New Slide Navigation Controls
You may noticed that we’ve moved the slide controls to a more convenient location. To advance slides (or go backwards) look for the arrow buttons shown here. Keyboard arrow controls will also advance slides (left arrow to go forward, right arrow to go back).
New Grid view
Want to navigate directly to a specific slide in your presentation? Use the grid control to instantly see your slide thumbnails. Click on one of the slides to navigate directly there.
New Notes Appear on Mobile
As more and more presentation viewers open Haiku Decks on small screens, it has become more important to show public notes in that context. The new playback page does just that as shown below.
Other new elements of the playback page include a better layout for mobile browsers, and significantly faster page load time.
We’d love to hear your feedback! Let us know what you think about the updated playback page by dropping us an email any time!
