MacBook Pro Touch Bar controls are available for the Zoom client and when in a Zoom meeting. These controls give you quick access to start a meeting or screen share, join a meeting, or schedule a meeting when you are not in a meeting but have the Zoom Desktop client in focus. 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.
