  • Minor bug fixes.

Previous Release

July 2, 2017: Zoom Rooms for Mac: Version 4.0.37666.0630

Change to an Existing Feature

  • Simplified Microphone settings
    A single Software Audio Processing setting replaces the settings for Software Echo Cancellation and Automatically Adjust Mic Level. Each microphone volume is automatically saved if it has been changed from default.

New and Enhanced Features

  • Zoom Rooms Scheduling Display
    A new mode in the Zoom Rooms app configures your iPad tablet as a simple and convenient tool that displays and schedules meetings. Run the iPad app in Scheduling Display mode and position the tablet directly outside of the Zoom Room to display room availability and allow a room to be be reserved.
    • Display Zoom Rooms availability from outside of the room
      Position an iPad on the wall outside of a Zoom Room. The top portion of the tablet displays information about upcoming meetings scheduled for the room, while the bottom portion prominently shows whether the room is currently occupied or available.
    • Instantly schedule meetings for Zoom Rooms
      Use the Reserve button on the Scheduling Display to schedule your own meeting during a time period when the Zoom Room is free. Both the Scheduling Display and the Zoom Room calendar instantly show the new meeting, preventing others from double-booking the room.

      Details about the iPad that runs the Zoom Rooms Scheduling Display are available in the Devices tab for the room on the Zoom website.
  • Zoom Rooms In-meeting features
    • Choose a Thumbnail, Gallery, or Speaker video layout
      The new Thumbnail layout combines the speaker view with a scaled down gallery view. In this layout, a single row of thumbnails containing the most recent speakers displays below a large view of the currently active speaker. Tap the name of the current view on the iPad controller to switch among the layout choices.
    • Improved Gallery View image quality
      Improved image quality is available for Gallery View on a Mac running an i7 or Xeon type CPU with 1 or 2 screens. This feature is not available when screen share is in use with a Mac Mini using dual screens.
    • Improved speaker visibility in Gallery View
      The speaker’s video is moved to the Gallery View page that you are currently viewing in the room.
    • Switch to a specific active camera
      If more than two cameras are available in the Zoom Room, you can dynamically choose which camera is active by choosing the camera from a list. Tap Switch Camera to display the list of available cameras and then tap the one you want to use.
    • Multiple MXL USB microphone support
      When multiple MXL microphones are available in a Zoom Room, they are merged into a single entity and managed together. The room automatically detects which microphone needs to be active at a particular time. Using multiple microphones is particularly useful in large rooms where a single microphone might not detect the sounds from all parts of the room.
    • Support for additional devices for HDMI Sharing
      The following HDMI-USB devices now support audio and video sharing in Zoom Rooms:
      • Magewell USB Capture HDMI Gen 2
      • Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus
  • Zoom Rooms Controller features
    • Control PanaCast Intelligent Zoom
      If you have the Intelligent Zoom feature enabled for a PanaCast camera, the Camera settings in the controller includes an option for Intelligent Zoom. If you enable this option, the camera zooms in and out to include all of the people in the room.
    • Reduce excessive sound reverberation
      In highly reverberant rooms, you can reduce the echo in the room for remote participants by enabling the Reduce excessive sound reverberation setting..
  • Zoom Rooms Management feature
    • Disable devices alerts from appearing on the screen
      The Alert Settings tab lets you specify that peripheral device alerts do not appear on Zoom Rooms screens. For example, if you disconnect the camera and microphone, to use the room for displaying rather than presenting content, the room does not display an alert that these peripherals are disconnected. Configure the alert settings in the Alert Settings tab of the Edit Room page. To access this tab, sign into your Zoom account and click Zoom Rooms, then click the room name. Click the Edit button next to the room name to display the Edit Room page for the room, then click the Alert Settings tab at the top of that page.
    • Automatically start and stop scheduled meetings in Zoom Rooms
      You can specify that meetings in Zoom Rooms follow the Google or Microsoft calendar associated with the room. These meetings start automatically at the start time in the calendar and stop at the end time.
    • Hide or show sharing instructions on the screen
      You can enable or disable the option Hide share instruction from TV. If you enable this option, instructions for how to display your laptop are never shown on the TV.
    • Simplified Zoom Rooms Calendar integration
      Beginning July 8, the process to integrate a calendar into Zoom Rooms will be simplified. You can now easily link your calendar system (Google or Microsoft) on the Calendar Integration page (under Zoom Rooms) and then assign individual room calendars to Zoom Rooms at any time. Additionally, when adding a new room, you only need to enter a unique room name in order to make the room available to your account and you can add the calendar later.
  • Minor enhancements
  • Bug fixes

April 16, 2017: Zoom Rooms for Mac: Version 4.0.29587.0412

  • Improved Google login 
    Google has enhanced the login process, and in the latest version of Zoom Rooms, logging in through Google takes advantage of these enhancements.

    • Control cloud recording for instant meetings

    • Transform all meetings to private
      Choose this option to immediately mask the display of upcoming meeting topics from Zoom Rooms screens. This can be done at the account level, the room level, or at any intermediate level in the hierarchy. The screens show either “<MeetingOrganizer_Name’s> Meeting” or “Private Meeting” instead of the original meeting topic. 
    • Hide host and meeting ID from private meetings
      If this feature is enabled, private meetings do not show the host name or meeting ID on the controller or the Zoom Room screen. Individuals can join a private meeting from a Zoom Room by clicking the Start button, even though they cannot see the host or meeting ID. This feature is available for iPad controllers only.
  • Zoom Room In-meeting feature
    • Camera presets
      The Camera Control option includes three buttons that can be used to return a camera to a specific preset position. You do not need a passcode to move the camera to the preset position, but you must enter the passcode to configure the presets. 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.
