User Impact Summary
For the mobile page, let me know if anything here needs to chage:
The following features are now available for the edX mobile app on iPhones.
New visitors can now use the edX mobile app to register edX user accounts.
New visitors have the option to use their Google or Facebook accounts
when they sign up for edX user accounts.
The edX mobile app can now be used to find and enroll in courses.
These features are also available in the edX mobile app for Android smartphones. For more information, see `The edX Mobile App`_.
For the LMS page, made this change. Lou reviewed.
For video components that include a defined *Video Start Time* or *Video Stop Time*, learners no longer have the option to override those values and watch the entire video file. Only the segment of the video file that is delimited by your specified start and stop times plays.
Note: The Video Start Time or Video Stop Time does not apply to videos that are downloaded or viewed using the native mobile app. Learners who use the app can play the entire video file.
For the studio page, please include:
The video component Advanced Settings page includes a renamed field,
Video ID. Previously, this field was named EdX Video ID.
For more information, see `Working with Video Components`_.
