We have just released V3 version 6.1.0. Most visible changes in this release are improvements to video chat.

What's new:
  • Players can now minimize, or close the video chat widget. They can also restore it at any time.
  • While player's microphone is on, sound effects from V3 are muted. When microphone is off, sound effects are audible again.
  • While video is minimized, it it possible to turn off the incoming sound (mute all).

Video Chat can be activated:
  • in all types of tournaments (individual, pairs, swiss teams).
  • in team matches
  • at casual tables

To activate video chat in your game, write +video+ in your table description, or in your team match description, or in your tournament description.

For playing at main club tables, you need to reserve seats for the other players, otherwise they won't see the video chat widget.


The host of the game needs video chat permission. This is granted on demand, by BBO. All virtual clubs have access to video chat. Try it first, and if it doesn't work for you, email us at tournaments@bridgebase.com to ask for access to free video chat. Mention your BBO username and how you intend to use it.
