Upcoming Release

Details about upcoming releases will be posted as they become available.

September 22, 2021 version TBD

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • Additional MSI/PLIST/GPO options
      • 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. Additionally, corrections have been made to Brazilian time zones, and Yerevan has been split into its own time zone.
  • 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.
    • 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.
  • Meeting features
    • Security settings overview 
      The host and co-host in a meeting can quickly check what security features are currently in effect for the meeting they are hosting. This information is accessible through the in-meeting encryption shield, located in the top-left corner of the meeting.
  • 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.
    • Prompt for emergency address 
      If the admin has enabled nomadic emergency services and personal locations; or allowed users to manage their emergency address, users will receive prompts to confirm or update their emergency addresses until they do so.
