Upgrade or Downgrade Zoom Rooms Software Follow

Overview

Account admins or owners can remotely upgrade their Zoom Rooms software to the latest version, or downgrade them to the previous Zoom Rooms version from the Zoom web portal. When upgrading or downgrading remotely, the Zoom Room will wait up to 30 minutes before proceeding with the upgrade, to confirm that no meetings are in progress or about to start.

If you need to do a faster upgrade to the latest version of Zoom, you can download and install the latest version of Zoom Rooms from the Download Center.

Zoom Room controller software can be upgraded manually or by using Zoom device management from the web portal. The controller software cannot be downgraded. 

Please Note: Starting on May 30, 2020, all Zoom Rooms must be running version 5.0 or higher in order to join any meetings, as GCM Encryption will be fully enabled for all Zoom meetings. 

Starting on June 30, 2020 all Zoom Room Controllers and scheduling displays must be running a minimum version or higher to function, since enhanced encryption between rooms and controllers will be enabled on this date.
