As you may already know Electa Live is supported on multiple platforms - Windows, MAC OS, Linux, Android phones and tablets. Earlier this year we have added support for Apple iPads and iPhones.
To enable fast and easy access to live sessions Electa Live uses a set of different approaches. One such option for Windows users has been Java.
During the past months however Java has been blocked by many browsers for security reasons. Because of this we have started a process of shifting away from Java as a launch option for our users.
Our software team has successfully developed a new secure and faster entry procedure for our Windows users. This entry point does not use Java. We have already started shifting our existing customers to this easier session launch method. This has already been set in effect for all new customers that are signing up after March 10 2014.
All existing customers will be automatically updated to the new improved entry procedure within the next two months. No service disruptions are expected, nor any changes in exiting schedules or libraries.
As of now this process will cover Windows users only. MAC OS users will still need Java to run live sessions. This however is a subject to change later this year after the release our new MAC OS application for teachers and students which will be available for free download in the Apple MAC Store.
Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad) users already have a secure and Java free entry point using the free Electa Live app from Google Play and App Store.
