Release notes for Zoom Phone

Changes to existing features

    Due to a recent regulatory change, Zoom will no longer be offering Turkey phone numbers to use with Zoom Phone. Existing customers with Turkey phone numbers are not currently affected.
  • ELIN requirements and reporting for emergency locations
    For account owners and admins deploying nomadic emergency services, we are providing some helpful guidance for managing Company and Personal Locations. An ELIN (Emergency Location Identification Number) is required for locations with emergency addresses outside the United States and Canada, or locations that are served by a BYOC carrier for emergency calling. ELINs are not required for the US and Canada locations when Zoom is the emergency call carrier. Note: BYOC customers deploying nomadic emergency services have the option to select Zoom as their emergency call carrier for US/Canada numbers; Zoom recommends you turn that on.

      Account owners and admins can view the On other call member availability statistic which tracks queue members who are not on a call made to the call queue (for example, they are on a personal phone call).

      When creating phone user templates, account owners and admins can choose to assign random PINs to phone users who are assigned the template. Alternatively, they can choose to assign the same PIN. Previously, phone users who were assigned a template were automatically assigned the same PIN.
    • Enhancement to usage charges report
      Account owners and admins can view the Charge Mode and Forward Number Billing column to better identify calls to special prefixes that are charged at certain rates.
  • User features
    • Caller verified icon for incoming calls
      Zoom Phone will show “caller verified” check marks to help users identify potential robocalls and spam calls.

The check mark icon appears in the call log and inbound call notifications (client, app) for these inbound call scenarios:
      • Extension to extension calls in the same account
      • Call between Zoom Phone customers
      • Incoming calls from the U.S. public telephone network when the originating carrier has provided an A-level attestation per STIR/SHAKEN guidelines.

It is available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S territories for local and long-distance calls. With TSR, hearing or speech impaired users can dial 711 to reach a Communications Assistant (CA) who then will relay the call to the intended party. 711 class are supported on:
      • ATAs with a TTY device
      • Zoom desktop client and mobile app
  • Devices
    • Firmware upgrades
      Certain Poly and Yealink devices will receive firmware upgrades. Devices will automatically reboot to upgrade firmware.
    • View firmware version
      Account owners and admins can view the firmware version number of provisioned devices (assigned/unassigned desk phones, ATAs, and common area phones) by enabling the Firmware Version column in the device list. The version also appears in the device details page and device list CSV export.
    • Bulk import keys and positions for multiple users
      Account owners and admins can assign certain keys and positions (Speed Dial, BLF, and Call Park) to multiple users by importing a CSV file. When imported, these keys and positions will be added/appended to any existing keys and positions for those users. Previously, admins could only import keys and positions for a single user at a time.
    • Cisco IP Phone updates
