JackTrip Virtual Studio Update 9/23/2022

What’s New?

  • New Participants studio tab replaces Subscribers & Devices
  • Streamlined experience for joining studios
  • New buttons to start and stop studios
  • You can now like live broadcasts on JackTrip Radio
  • Sunsetting Jamulus-Only Studios

Participants Tab

We’ve combined the former “Devices” and “Subscribers” tabs so you can see all of this inside one view named “Participants”. As an owner or admin on a studio, you’ll be able to manage connected clients and subscribers all in one location.

Join Button Enhancements

The join button on your studio is now always enabled. When a studio is running, you’ll be able to connect like normal. However, if your studio is not running, you’ll see some different prompts.

If you’re an admin and your studio is not running, you will now be able to start the studio. Otherwise, the join button will put you in a “waiting room” that waits for the studio to be available.

Updated Start/Stop Button

To make starting and stopping studios easier, we changed the location of the Start/Stop button and placed it right at the top next to the Join button. See below for the new look!

Likes on Broadcasts

We’ve added the ability to like public broadcasts. These likes will get applied directly to the subsequent recording that gets automatically created from your public broadcast.

Sunsetting Jamulus-Only Studios

As we’re building out new features, we’ve found that Jamulus-only studios are losing more and more functionality. We’ve made the decision to stop supporting new Jamulus-only studios going forward. If you’re a Jamulus user, you can still take advantage of JackTrip+Jamulus studio types.

If you have any questions or concerns about the above, please reach out to us via a support ticket. Thanks!


I love the new visual updates!
