Release notes for Web

New and enhanced features

  • Administrator features
    • Control enhanced formatting for in-meeting chat
      Account admins can control use of the enhancements to in-meeting chat to support more advanced forms of messaging, including in-line image previews, rich text formatting, screenshots, and message quoting. Messages can also be deleted after being sent. This setting is available at the account, group, and user levels.
    • Control for scheduling a meeting through Zoom Team Chat
      Account owners and admins can control use of the ability for users to schedule meetings directly within a chat channel, which will automatically invite all members of that chat channel to the resulting calendar event. This feature currently only supports the Contacts and Calendar integration with Google and requires version 5.11.3 or higher.
    • Support for RelayState with SSO authentication
      Zoom SSO authentication protocols have been enhanced to provide the ability for deep linking within SSO responses, ensuring users are authenticated before joining a meeting or viewing a cloud recording, as well as automatically authenticating on the client when launching the application. This feature must be enabled by Zoom.
    • Delegate account administration to external users
      Account owners can invite users outside of their account through role management to manage selected area(s) of a Zoom account, while restricting access to other areas. All activity or actions by the external individual on the account will be recorded in the account admin’s activity logs, just as if the individual were a member of their account. Account owners and admins can also give access to external users for delegated account administration for a set period/time and can revoke access at any time.
    • Support for adding multiple admins to a chat channel through chat admin management
      Account owners and admins can designate up to 50 admins to help manage a chat channel through Team Chat Management.
    • Zoom Mail and Calendar Clients 
      Account owners and admins of accounts with more than one user can allow users to integrate their Zoom Mail Service, Google, or Office 365 account with the Zoom desktop client to manage their email and calendar events in a centralized location. For free and Pro accounts, this is enabled by default. This feature requires client version 5.12.8 or higher.
    • Zoom Mail Service (Beta) 
      Account owners and admins of Zoom One Pro or Standard Pro accounts in the US or Canada can allow their users to set up the Zoom Mail Service on the desktop client. The Zoom Mail Service works seamlessly with Meetings, Phone, and Team Chat, bringing communications and scheduling activities together. This feature requires client version 5.12.8 or higher.
    • Enhancements to Office 365 service permissions
      With the launch of Zoom Mail and Calendar Clients, Mail read and write permissions are available to connect the Office 365 calendar service.
    • Enhancements to Google service permissions
      With the launch of Zoom Mail and Calendar Clients, Mail read and write permissions are available to connect the Google mail service.
  • User features
    • Capture language interpreters’ audio in cloud recordings
      When language interpretation (audio) is used in a session, the cloud recording includes separate audio files for translator channels. Viewers can select their preferred language during playback.
    • Accept delegated account administration
      When account owners invite external users or third-party users to help manage their account, users who accept the account administration invitation are allowed to manage the account owner’s account, based on the permissions granted. These users can view a list of all accounts they can access and have a centralized web portal to access each account.
