    • The large meeting plan for 100 participants will no longer be available

       

New and enhanced features

  • Admin Features
    • Additional currency for purchasing Zoom licenses
      In addition to the US Dollar, Zoom supports the ability to use the Australian Dollar, the Euro, and the British Pound when purchasing licenses.

After your first purchase using a particular currency, all future transactions are processed with that currency.
    • Calendar of public meetings and webinars
      If your account uses a vanity URL, you can request to enable an option that makes public meetings and webinars available on a public calendar for up to 12 months.

    • Reporting information for attention indicator
      The Meeting Report and Webinar Report include an Attentiveness column, showing the percentage of time that the attendee (on a supported version of the client) had the Zoom window in focus.

    • Internal phone system integration (preview feature)
      You can import a CSV file that matches up Zoom account users in your organization with their corresponding phone number on your internal SIP based phone system.
