      The Camera Control option includes three buttons that can be used to return a camera to a specific preset position.

To configure a preset, long press a button to display a popup menu, where you can choose to save a camera position or rename the button. After a button is set, tap it to move the camera to the preset position.This is available on supported models of Logitech and AVer cameras.
  • Zoom Rooms Controller feature
    • Improved end of meeting feedback survey flow
      Previously, if you chose the “Thumbs down” feedback option after the meeting ended, you had to select an option stating what went wrong. You can now choose the “Thumbs down” option without providing additional feedback. This is for iOS controllers only.
