Release notes for Zoom PWA

Note: The PWA/web client release has been delayed until October 3, 2021. 

New and enhanced features

  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Upload custom mask backgrounds
      Web client users can upload their own background for use with the masking feature in addition to the standard backgrounds provided by Zoom. The chosen background is persistent between sessions. Backgrounds uploaded by admins through the web portal are also available for use.
    • Poll access for alternative hosts
      If meeting hosts add alternative hosts to their meeting, they can allow alternative hosts to add or edit polls. The alternative host in the meeting will have the additional in-meeting options to add or edit a poll, which launches the web portal to make the changes.
  • Meeting features
    • Participant attendance status
      If the host has the Google or Outlook calendar integration configured, Zoom will display a list of others invited to the meeting but not yet in attendance, allowing for quick checks if everyone is in attendance yet. Their invite response (Accepted, Declined, Maybe) is listed with their name and the host can easily invite them to the meeting from the participants panel. This feature can be enabled for use in meetings at the Account-, Group-, and User-level web settings, and will initially be available only for free users as part of a beta.
    • Share screen to all Breakout Rooms
      When sharing screen in the main session, the host or co-host can share their screen to all active Breakout Rooms. Any active sharing in the breakout sessions are interrupted and any annotation or whiteboarding prompts the sharer to save them before viewing the shared screen from the host. Host and participants must be using the web client or Zoom app version 5.7.0 or higher to utilize and see this feature.
