Beam 2020 Week #50 - Speaking in Tongues!
Covering November 7th - December 13th 2020
The latest Beam desktop wallet release has something the Beam team is massively proud of, and owes a huge gratitude to the community for its support of. What might that be you ask? How can you say "sovereign and private finances" in 18 different languages? BEAM! As above shows, this week is all about languages and the Beam wallet ability to speak, in tongues.
As it’s another great community effort and the wallets are ever evolving and being upgraded with expansion after expansion, it’s an ongoing effort to ensure that our team can stay engaged with all of our great and loyal community, across the world. Around the corner is the Eager Electron 5.2 release for mobile, and with it, the same set of language options as you currently find on desktop.
We look forward to having more languages supported, and improving what is there!
As always, the Beam community is massively important, the heart and soul of everything thats been done and happening with Beam. For this reason, and to get a better gauge of where we are at, what your thoughts are, and the way forward, we are once again asking you for your ever valuable feedback. On Beam of course!
We are excited about what’s happening, and looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the state of Beam.
