Using Apple's Center Stage feature with Zoom

Last Updated:

Utilizing Apple's new Center Stage feature in Zoom, someone with their video on is kept in frame as they move around in the space in front of their iPad. This creates a more dynamic and engaging video experience, and it eliminates the need to move your iPad to keep you in the center of the video. 

Prerequisites for using Apple's Center Stage feature with Zoom

  • Zoom mobile app for iOS: version 5.6.6 (423) or higher
  • iPad Pro 12.9" (5th generation)
