I am nearing the end of my trial period and I have decided that, although lacking, it doesn't pay to start using the separate phone and meeting apps if they will soon be discontinued. So, if I stay with RC, I am just going to use the Universal Glip apps on my Android and Windows 10 PC and wait for the additional features to be ported over.
I currently use MS Teams for team messaging but would probably switch to Glip just to have everything in one place. Glip is definitely INFERIOR to MS Teams in several areas:
1) Presence - MS Teams makes a distinction if someone is idle (yellow) vs. offline (gray). Glip doesn't.
2) E-Mail Notifications - MS Teams seems smarter about when I am idle and will therefore send me e-mails more accurately for missed messages. I often don't get e-mails when I miss a Glip message - even after the programmed 15 minutes.
3) Your status is not shown in the system tray icon.
4) Syncing Phone with Android - If MS Teams is open on my desktop and active, my phone just seems to "know" not to beep on an incoming Teams message. It is almost like there is a slight delay. With Glip, my desktop and phone "ding" at the same time for each message. When I was speaking with an RC Tier 2 tech person yesterday, he explained that is the intended behavior. OK so I will accept that. But......
When the messages are read on the desktop app, my Android still shows an unread Glip message that only disappears after I swipe it away - regardless of how much time has passed. That is a bit frustrating.
Has anyone else experienced this and found a solution? Thanks.
