Release notes for the Zoom client

For full notes including version numbers, please see the operating system release notes. 
Windows | macOS | Linux | Android | iOS*  

*The iOS release requires Apple approval and may take a few additional days to appear in the App Store.

Changes to existing features

  • MSI flag required for Outlook IM Integration on MSI deployments - Windows
    Due to a potential conflict with components shared with other Microsoft products, such as Skype and Teams, the integration for Outlook status syncing will not be automatically available with MSI deployments. This must be deployed by admins with the existing MSI/GPO option IntegrateZoomWithOutlook. The exe version is unaffected, as it already required admin credentials to be enabled.
  • Intune authentication migration from ADAL to MSAL - iOS (Intune only)
    To prepare for the upcoming end of support for ADAL authentication, we are migrating the Intune authentication to the recommended MSAL authentication.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • SSO logout notifications - Windows, macOS, Android, iOS
      If the existing Enforce automatic logout after user has been logged in for x days SSO setting is enabled, users are forewarned when they will be automatically signed out of the desktop client and mobile app. Warnings will be provided at login, 24 hours, 1 hour, and 5 minutes before logout.
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Transfer meetings between devices - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      Seamlessly transition meetings from mobile to desktop and back to mobile, allowing you to take advantage of the mobility of the mobile client and the more feature-rich desktop client to suit your needs. This feature will not be immediately available, as it is dependent on a web release currently scheduled for August 21, 2021, and will be rolled out to customers over time.
    • Watermark enhancements - Linux
      Watermarks will display the entire email address over a participant’s shared screen and video tile, as well as displayed over their video in most video layouts (Speaker, Gallery, Side-by-side). The watermark is also visibly more apparent as a tiled pattern across the video or shared screen. This brings the Linux client into parity with the same recent enhancements for Windows and macOS clients.
    • Optimize for video auto-detect - Windows
      When Optimize for video clip is enabled but no video is detected, the client will automatically disable this feature to provide better visual quality of the shared content, then automatically re-enable when video is detected again.
    • Support for Virtual Background images without a green screen - Linux
      The ability to use the Image as Virtual Background feature without the need of a green screen is now supported on Linux. System requirements will be provided in the Virtual Background System Requirements Support article.
  • Meeting features
    • Limit screen sharing for meetings with external participants - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      Admins can apply restrictions to specific users or to groups through web settings to prevent these users from screen sharing when a guest participant (a user external to the host’s account) joins a meeting. These users will still be able to screen share when there are no guest participants.
    • Automatic reactions from gesture recognition - iOS (iPad only)
      Allows for visual gestures, such as a raised hand, to automatically use a corresponding meeting reaction, Raise hand. Currently, this is supported for Raise Hand and Thumbs Up reactions.
  • Chat features
    • Chat sidebar enhancements - Windows, macOS, Android, iOS
      Further quality-of-life enhancements to the chat sidebar, including easy and clear designation if a channel is public or private. For the desktop clients, fewer chats/channels are shown per group, as well as the ability to expand to see more, in order to provide greater overall visibility of all chats and channels.
    • Chat enhancements - Linux
      Bookmarked messages and contact requests are relocated to their own quick-access buttons at the top of the chat sidebar. Search interface has been simplified for easier use.
    • Relocation of Search bar - Windows, macOS
      The Search bar in the client has been relocated to the left side of the client.
  • Phone features
    • Privacy feature for shared lines - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      If enabled by an account owner and admin, shared line group and shared line appearance members can lock their current call. This prevents others from picking up a held call, listening, whispering, barging, or taking over the call.
    • Company phone number while in a call - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      Phone users can view their own company number and extension while in a call. Previously, only the extension was displayed.
    • Phone number labels - Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS
      If phone number labels were set in the web portal, they will show in user profile cards and dial paid search results. This feature will not be immediately available, as it is dependent on a web release currently scheduled for August 29, 2021.

    • Mute and Video Off when joining a recorded/live streamed meeting
      When participants join a meeting that is already being recorded and/or live streamed, they will join with their video off and muted until they consent to the recording prompt. After consenting, they will be able to unmute and turn on their video, if the host allows them to. This brings the web client into parity with the desktop and mobile clients.
    • Support for additional reaction skin tones
