Current Release

August 22, 2021

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • New Admin Policy: SetAccountIDsRestricted
      Admins can restrict the PWA to joining meetings hosted by specific account IDs. An admin will need to contact Zoom Support to acquire their account ID.
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Mirror video support
      The web client now supports the ability to mirror your view of your video stream.
    • Persistent device selection between sessions
      When setting your preferred webcam, speaker, and microphone, this choice will be saved for your next use. Users can still quickly switch to other devices as needed.
    • 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
      Users can choose from more skin tones for their reactions, such as Raise Hand.
  • Meeting features
    • Support for Focus Mode
      In focus mode, only the host can see participants’ videos or profile pictures when video is off. Additionally, participant’s screen sharing can only be viewed by the host, who can switch between multiple shared screens and optionally allow participants to view others’ shared screens.

Introducing the Zoom PWA
The Zoom PWA (Progressive Web App) is a new, more powerful version of the Zoom web client. This PWA, intended as a replacement for our ChromeOS app as we reach the final year of support for all ChromeOS apps, mirrors all of the same features currently available for the ChromeOS app, yet allows for more functionality planned for later this year.
