Thanks for reading our dev blog for NZXT CAM 4.5.0 Today’s release of NZXT CAM is all about improving stability and helping us understand how we can continue to drive meaningful improvements to CAM in the future. As such, we had 3 major initiatives:

Improve device detection:

This version contains several substantial bug fixes. The first and most important change is a bug fix we made to how devices are detected and ennumerated by CAM. This should prevent users from having intermittent problems seeing and controlling their devices inside CAM. We know that this bug was responsible for a lot of unhappiness, so we made sure to resolve it as soon as possible. If you’re continuing to encounter this bug, or similar issues, please contact support.

Update login flow:

Additionally, we made some major updates to our login flow. Because login is tied to how profiles are loaded and applied, we wanted to make sure it was rock solid. Also related, Google recently made some changes to how its oAuth service worked, causing certain services to lose the ability to log in with Google. We’ve updated the application to resolve that issue. Because this change could impact the application in unexpected ways, we’re starting out by only deploying this change to 10% of users. As we see the results, we’ll ramp up the change until 100% of users go through the new login flow.

Add surveying to NZXT CAM:

Finally, we added the ability to send surveys to users via NZXT CAM. It’s possible that you’ll never see this survey, as it’s only administered to a small group of NZXT CAM users, but the survey will be used to help us understand what problems users are experiencing and how we can better address them. As of the time of this blog post, users have a less than 1% chance of seeing the survey, assuming their language is set to English and they haven’t seen the survey in the last 30 days. If you’re unwilling or unable to complete the survey, you can simply close it and use CAM as normal.

Thanks for reading today’s blog post! Our next update is scheduled for 4/22, so please stay tuned for more updates to NZXT CAM.
