Release notes for Web

Changes to existing features

  • Enhancement to associated domains settings
    Account owners and admins with an associated domain can enable the option, Allow users with the same domain to sign up for Zoom. If this is enabled, users can sign up for a Zoom account using an email address with the associated domain. For example, if the associated domain is mydomain.com, they can sign up using name@mydomain.com. These users will receive an email with options to consolidate into the managing account or sign up with a different email. This setting is disabled by default and requires the Manage users with the same domain option to be enabled.

    • Password policy for Poly VVX devices
      On April 25th, Zoom will start deploying Poly firmware version 6.4 across the Zoom Phone platform.
