“In this version of Envoy we’ve implemented intuitive and easy-to-use coin control, a new Activity Center and Privacy Shield, a redesigned Learn tab, broad user experience and user interface improvements, and squashed bugs across the board.””We’re especially excited about our implementation of coin control in Envoy, as there has been a lack of intuitive coin control on mobile for Bitcoin users in the past, even though coin control is vital for giving you control over your privacy.””We’ve spent countless hours building coin control in Envoy from the ground up to be as easy to use, as powerful, and as privacy-preserving as possible. Coin control isn’t just for technical users anymore.
