A company that literally develops a software which helps communicating in a work from home situation really shouldn’t have to use the ongoing pandemic as yet another excuse why their product didn’t see the light of day yet.
Out of all the companies out there, I expect TeamSpeak to be among the ones who are well prepared to have their employees work remotely.
TeamSpeak’s biggest problem in the last couple of years has been a clearly evident lack of internal organization.
Everbody seems to do “their thing”, but that “thing” they are doing is poorly coordinated with what the rest of the company is doing. Responsibilities are shifting around, priorities are changing and some things are not getting done at all anymore because someone decided that it’s not important at this point.
I uploaded a new version of my theme months ago to make use of the most recent TeamSpeak 3 client features but apparently nobody is available to approve it.
Why would you even release these new features when you already know that there is nobody around to actually approve the updated add-ons that follow?
This is just one example of many more where TeamSpeak simply does things without putting some thought into the consequences.
And if TeamSpeak 5’s development is anything similar, I’m absolutely not surprised that there is no open beta yet.
