What’s new in Biteable
Voice-overs available in the Smart Editor
It seems like we just added a new feature to the Smart Editor…and now here’s another. You can now add voice-overs to your video while in the Smart Editor.
Replace backgrounds with stock assets in the Smart Editor
More features keep coming to the Smart Editor. You can now replace backgrounds with stock assets from directly in the Smart Editor, saving you a trip to the Advanced Editor.
Invite your colleagues to your Biteable Teams plan
Subscribers on a Biteable Teams plan can easily see how many available seats they have remaining, and send invites to new team members from within Biteable.
Branded Scene navigation
We’ve updated the navigation of the branded scenes to scroll vertically instead of scrolling horizontally. Use the tabs on the top of the screen to automatically scroll you to that section, or scroll on your own and the tabs will update to let you know where you are.
Scenes are now searchable from both the animations tab and the branded scenes tab. Regardless of which tab you search from, you will see results from both libraries. Branded scenes have a label to help you quickly identify them.
Branded Scenes now available to Biteable Pro plans
Branded Scenes are now available to users on Biteable Pro plans.
Create stunning, on-brand videos in minutes with Branded Scenes. Choose from your master deck of pre-styled and pre-formatted scenes to build your video in a handful of clicks.
New sidebar navigation
On many of the pages within the Biteable app, you’ll now see the option for a more compact navigation on the left side of the Editor.
Invite commenters to your video
You can now invite people to comment on your Biteable video from the Exports page. People you invite do not have to be on your Biteable Team to leave a comment.
Access previous uploads when replacing a background
More features added to the Smart Editor! You can now access previous uploads in your Media Library when replacing a background in the Smart Editor.
Have you ever made a scene that you really like and wish that you could use over and over and over again? Wish no more. When you’re in the Advanced Editor, we’ve added a button with a love heart that says “Add to Favorites”. When you click that button, your scene will be added to the favorites collection.
Easier access to start a video or request a recording
We’ve added a row of quick-action buttons to give you quick and easy access to starting a new video from scratch, starting a new video from a template, start a recording of you or your screen, and requesting a video recording from someone else.
Flip the layout of a scene in the Smart Editor
You can now flip the layout of a scene while editing your video in the Smart Editor.
Rendering time has been improved for scenes with animated text.
Delete Self-recordings and Recording request videos
Using the Biteable Capture feature to record yourself, but you’re not thrilled with some of recordings you’ve saved? Us too. Now, you easily delete self-recordings and individual Record requests that you get from others from your Asset library.
Team editing experience improvements
When you share a Biteable project with your team, you now have the ability to invite members to your team, or to add extra members to your team (up to your seat limit).
Access and upload images and logos in more places
Edit Brand color combinations in the Biteable editor
In addition to being able to edit your brand color combinations in the Style settings, you can now easily edit them from within the Advanced Editor and the Smart Editor. Once you’re done with your edits, you’ll be taken directly back where you left off.
New Template Explorer
We’re always working to improve your experience using Biteable and we think you’re going to love the new Template explorer that makes finding templates easier than ever.
Now, all members of a team can invite additional members to join your Biteable Teams plan. Fill those available seats and make more videos.
New Smart Editor
It’s time to say goodbye to finicky design decisions and tedious timelines with the new and improved Smart Editor. Simply start typing and watch your video come to life. Now featuring:
- Simple text formatting
- Bullet points and numbered lists
- Drag and drop scene controls
- Use your keyboard to navigate the editor with up/down and page-up/page-down
- and so much more.
Receive and leave comments on your video for editing, approval, and feedback
Speed up your workflow with built-in commenting. Collect comments on any video and be notified when a new comment or reply is left. Time-stamped feedback makes collaboration a breeze — request and receive internal approval, and gather audience feedback when your video is live. Find out more.
Add an image or caption to any page
This update allows you to add a new text caption or image caption to a scene that doesn’t already have one. It also allows you to add a text or image caption to an existing caption.
Improvements to Record
Asset Library available for Pro users
All Biteable users now have access to a personal Asset Library. Use your Asset Library to sort and organize your files and uploads.
Multiple Brands now supported for Teams users
If you’re on a Biteable Teams plan, you can now save and switch between multiple brands. Auto-apply any branding you’d like to the hundreds of branded scenes and templates available within your plan. Find out more.
25 new premium soundtracks have hit your account. Find the perfect soundtrack for every video. Previewing and selecting soundtracks is now easier than ever.
Your Biteable dashboard has been updated to make it easier for you to start a new video project, find existing video projects, organize videos, find the assets that you’ve uploaded, and to manage any brands that you’ve added to your Biteable account.
Record feature for all paid accounts
The Request Recording feature has been updated with new steps to explain the process and an option to provide a deadline for responses. The people you request to give you a video recording will now have more context for the video you’re requesting and they’ll know when you need the response.
Improvements to Folders
For those of you have dozens and dozens of folders, we made the folders appear slimmer and more compact so you can see more folders on the screen at once. We threw in a count of how many videos are in each folder for good measure. Learn more about Folders.
Update to Video Analytics
When you use the Biteable Watch page to share your video, you get analytics on the number of views, number of completed views, and the general location of where the video was viewed. The view analytics can be seen in a couple of places, so we made sure the view numbers were always in sync.
Nobody likes goodbyes, but now you can at least say them with style and grace with our new Farewell templates. We released 10 templates in this new category and we think they’re the perfect way to wish a team member well who is heading off on their next adventure.
Easy access to the Publish page
Wouldn’t it be nice to access the link to the Biteable watch page and other publishing options for each video from the dashboard? Our developers thought so too. Click the Share link on a project thumbnail and get quick access to copy the link to the video and more.
We released 10 templates to the new Job Ads branded templates category. Users with an active paid subscription to the Teams plan have access to these new templates. Making your job ads stand out has never been easier.
Folders available to Pro plans
Users on an active, paid subscription to a Pro plan now have personal folders. You can use these folders to organize your growing library of Biteable videos. Previously, Folders were a feature only available on a Biteable Teams plan.
Voiceover available to Pro plans
Pro plan users now have access to the Voiceover feature which allows you to have both a soundtrack audio layer and a voiceover audio layer in your video.
Users on a Pro or Teams plan can upload a custom thumbnail image for their video. You can also choose any frame from your video and use that as your thumbnail image. You might also notice how fast the thumbnail images are generated and rendered thanks to some performance improvements behind the scenes.
Biteable Teams users can now view and manage uploaded media in one easy-to-find place — your Asset Library. Upload and organize videos, images, and logos via your Library for seamless sorting and sharing. Learn how to access the Asset Library
Support for Microsoft accounts
Have you always wanted to log into Biteable using your Microsoft account? Now you can! We still support logging in with Google and Facebook.
Search added to Branded templates
You can now use keyword search to find one of the hundreds of available branded templates you have access to with your Teams plan.
Brand color ideas generator
We released some improvements to the brand color ideas generator. Ideas will only generate with unique colors so you won’t see the same color being suggested for both the background and the primary text color. Your videos have never looked so good.
Vertical text alignment
You can now resize text boxes vertically as well as set the vertical text justification to top, middle, or bottom.
New templates for June
You now have two new template categories to choose from. There’s a new “Welcomes” category to welcome new team members. There’s also a new “Team Profiles” category to introduce key team members to others in your organization.
