Previous Releases:

July 2, 2017: Zoom Rooms iPad Controller App: Version 4.2.37605.0629

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.
    • 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.
  • 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.
    • Power On/Off CEC TVs in Zoom Rooms
      In Zoom Rooms that have CEC-supported TVs, you can power the TVs on or off using the iPad Controller.
    • 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..
    • Start or switch to Zoom Rooms from another app
      You can use the zoomrooms:// schema from another iOS app to launch or switch to the Zoom Rooms controller.
  • Minor enhancements
  • Bug fixes

New and Enhanced Features

  • Zoom Room Management features

  • 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.
