MacBook Pro Touch Bar controls are available for the Zoom client and when in a Zoom meeting.

When you are in a meeting, the controls allow you to mute/unmute, start/stop your video, start/stop recording (if enabled), share your desktop and end share, leave/end the meeting, and access the Zoom settings.
