Update 8/18/2017 PM PST: The roll out is now up another 10% to a total of 20% of our players. Starting today, we will be testing out Video Chat and Screen Sharing with 5% of desktop players (registered before today). We’re still at least a month out from considering a full launch. We’re measuring and testing bandwidth; acquiring and implementing more backend servers; and praying our code actually works. For now, video chat and screen share are only available in one on one calls and group DMs (not servers).
