Speedify LIVE Office Hours: Q&A With Our Developers
April 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
On the 193rd episode of Speedify LIVE we hold our weekly Office Hours with the Speedify Devs to take a look at recent updates and what’s coming next for Speedify!
As usual, we take viewer questions, we demonstrate how Speedify works in action, discuss recent improvements and take a look at our Mailbag for some user-specific cases!
Here are our 5 takeaways from our Office Hours:
- When it comes to Speedify basics, here’s what to know: it’s a VPN that lets you use multiple connections at the same time either for more speed or reliability; you can set each connection to a specific Priority deciding how much they are used; you can monitor your stats with the Graphs on the dashboard.
- With Speedify 13.2 out now, having even received a small fix update, we’re constantly improving! In Speedify 13.2 we overhauled the Bypass feature, adding more services to be routed around the VPN, a searchable list, and Bypass suggestions, while making more improvements to how we handle Starlink and other similar connections, with more to come in 13.3!
- Mailbag Question no.1 asks about how our bonding works and our priority settings: your Speedify client device makes a VPN connection to one of our servers, which is needed because we make connections to the server over all connections, splitting packets to have them go over each connection then put them back together at the server and send them out to the internet; while connection Priorities help control how much each connection is used and help avoid going into overcharges with providers.
- Mailbag Question no.2 brings up a common question: can you use the failover feature without the VPN? In short: no. This is because in order to do the bonding and the seamless failover, you need to have a VPN server as the intermediate point to do the talking to the servers on the internet, so even if one connection drops, your traffic still looks like it’s coming from the Speedify servers.
- Mailbag Question no.3 brings up the question of using Speedify on multiple devices: each individual subscription allows up to 5 devices. Tip: if you buy on Apple or the PlayStore you’ll need to register an account with an email to be able to sign in on other devices!
If you’re doing an active call we’re a little more aggressive about kicking in those secondary connections. If we notice any sort of glitches on the primary connection we want to keep the important things going, so it will kick in the secondary connections a little quicker than normal.
