VATSIM new audio codec? Any ideas about release date?

Recommended Posts

Pilots,
The were a lot of discussions about poor VATSIM audio quality in the past.
Anyway I've found an info on the VATSIM website from the last year , which states as follows:

New Voice Codec

Voice quality on VATSIM has long been the subject of much discussion on our network, with the compatibility of older pilot clients being a barrier to upgrading to a new voice codec which would improve voice quality for our pilots and controllers.

At Connexion 2017, Kieran Hardern, who sits on the VATSIM Board of Governors, made an announcement that VATSIM has a team actively working on the implementation of a new voice codec. A number of tests of specific codecs have already been completed and VATSIM is committed to make this happen. As with any voluntary project, we won't be putting an estimated time of release out on this but hope this announcement is of interest to our members who have been eagerly waiting for this upgrade.

It was almost year ago.

Are there any leaks about the release date of this new codec?

As per the page on Vatsim bottom line states

 

 

This proposal is in its much earlier stages and, again, we will not be providing predicted timeframes on the launch of such a feature
