    The out-of-meeting, persistent chat experience is renamed to Zoom Team Chat. This change is only to the various UI elements and has no effect on associated features and functionalities.
  • Split of Meetings and Teams Chat for mobile 
    The Meet & Chat tab of the mobile app is now separated into two tabs: Meetings and Team Chat. The Meetings tab provides the Start, Join, Schedule and Screen Share options, as well as see upcoming meetings, while the Team Chat tab is dedicated to 1:1 chats, group chats, and chat channels.

The host can assign interpreters when scheduling or during the meeting. These interpreters are displayed in a dedicated window, which can be repositioned and resized by the attendee choosing to view sign language interpretation. This requires version 5.11.3 or higher for desktop and 5.12.0 or higher for mobile.
    • Decline meeting invitation with message 
      When the host of an active meeting invites a contact directly to join, the invitee can send a message when declining the invite, to provide context around the reason for declining. Some preset responses are provided by Zoom, but custom text can be used as well. The message will appear as a chat message in Zoom Team Chat for the person requesting you join.
    • Enhanced in-meeting toolbar for mobile

      Zoom Team Chat users can improve their efficiency and responsiveness by setting configurable reminders for any Zoom Team Chat message.

This can also be configured to not be displayed with the other options through client settings. This requires version 5.12.0 or higher.

      When sending a Video Message in Zoom Chat, the user’s previously selected virtual background and their touch up setting are applied to the video. An option to open virtual background and filter settings is provided for quick access. This feature must be enabled by Zoom and the device must support the virtual background type you want to utilize.
    • Restrict who can add channel members 
      When updating or editing a chat channel, the channel admin can choose to allow anyone in the channel to add new members, or they can restrict this ability to only channel owners and admins. If external users are allowed in the channel, they can also select which user types are allowed to add external members to the channel.
    • Request private channel access from channel and message links
      When a link to a private channel or message in a private channel is shared with a user that is not currently a member of that private channel, they can request access to join. The channel admin receives the request in that channel, and if approved, the requestor is notified of the approval.
  • Phone features
    • Video mail/video greeting virtual background 
      If the feature is enabled by their admin, users can record a video greeting or video mail using a virtual background. The custom and Zoom-provided virtual backgrounds will be available for use, although custom backgrounds can only be uploaded via the web portal.

      • Disable auto launch SSO URL - DisableAutoLaunchSSO 
        Disabled by default, this option prevents Zoom from automatically launching the previously used SSO URL. This is useful for users with multiple accounts, each having their own SSO URL.
    • Support for additional time zones 
      Scheduling on the client now supports the GMT -7 Yukon, GMT +2 Chisinau, and GMT +5:30 Colombo time zones, which were already supported when scheduling in the web portal. 
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Stop incoming video 
      Users in a meeting can easily disable all incoming video through in-meeting controls. This may be done to preserve bandwidth for shared content, or to avoid mental fatigue from viewing multiple, active video participants. The account owner and admins can enable this for use in meetings at the Account-, Group-, and User-level web settings. Once enabled through web settings, users must then enable it for use in the Desktop client's Video settings. 
    • Poll access for alternative hosts 
      If meeting hosts add alternative hosts to their meeting, they can allow alternative hosts to add or edit polls. The alternative host in the meeting will have the additional in-meeting options to add or edit a poll, which launches the web portal to make the changes.
    • Notifications regarding conflicting microphone settings 
      When iOS users take advantage of new microphone settings, such as Standard, Voice Isolation, and Wide Spectrum, these OS-level settings may have an impact on microphone behavior within a meeting. If there is a conflict between OS and Zoom app settings, the user will be warned of the effect.
    • Hide self-view when sharing 
      When sharing their screen, users can swipe their self-view video panels towards the edge of the screen to temporarily hide that video panel. This allows them to see the entire screen without obstruction. Swiping away from the edge of the screen will make the self-view reappear.

  • Chat features
    • Rich text formatting support 
      Enhanced rich text message capabilities allow for better chat messages formatting options. These options are available for composing a new message, replies, and editing messages. Expanded options for the desktop client include bold, italics, underlining, strikethrough, highlight and text color, font size, bulleted and numbered lists, hyperlinks, and indenting. Mobile apps will gain the ability to bold, italicize, strikethrough, underline, and create a bulleted or numbered list.
    • Quote messages 
      Users can quote specific messages sent in a channel, which helps avoid confusion and eliminates the need for others to scroll up to view the initial question or message. Images and bot messages cannot be quoted.
    • Additional customization for Personal Note 
      The Personal Note can be configured to display for a specific period of time, as well as appearing above the text input box when someone is composing a message to you. For example, a user may say they are Out of office for the next few days, and that note will appear above the drafted message when someone is chatting directly with or mentioning them, warning them of the user’s current unavailability.
    • Support for search and Link Previews with Advanced Chat Encryption 
      Chat history search and hyperlink previews are now supported when Advanced Chat Encryption is enabled. Search is limited to messages that have already been decrypted and are stored on the device being used to perform the search. Link previews must first be enabled by the account admin in the web portal, as the default for this setting is off.
    • Clearer notification when converting a group-chat into a channel 
      When a multi-user chat is named, this converts the group chat into an official chat channel. The user changing the channel will be more informed of the effect of the change, and other users in the group will be notified of the changes as well, helping them locate the channel by its new name.
  • Zoom Phone features
    • UI enhancement to phone number labels 
      When searching for phone users using the dial pad or SMS search field, users can view the associated phone number labels by clicking or tapping the right arrow icon.

  • Ask all to unmute for meetings of 200 participants or fewer
    The meeting host can now ask all participants to unmute for meetings with 200 participants or fewer. This option is available in the host controls by clicking Participants, then More. This feature requires the desktop client 5.1.0 for the participants you are unmuting, as well as the host. If participants are on the Zoom client 5.0.5 or earlier, they will stay muted and not be prompted to unmute.

    • Enabling public channel admins and members to add external users
      Channel admins and members can now add external users into their public channels. In order to do so, the channel admin must enable this privacy setting, which is available when creating or editing a channel or adding a member.
