Current Release

April 24, 2022 version 5.10.3 (480)

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • Zoom Whiteboard
      The virtual whiteboarding experience has been redesigned to bring you the all-new Zoom Whiteboard, a cross-platform visual collaboration solution. With Zoom Whiteboard, you can brainstorm and collaborate on a persistent, expandable, digital canvas. All Zoom Rooms can open, view and save whiteboards from a desktop client paired to the Zoom Room. Zoom Rooms for Touch can also create and save whiteboards. This feature is separate from the “classic” whiteboard feature, which will continue to be available. The administrative controls for the new Zoom Whiteboard on Zoom Rooms are found in the Zoom web portal on the Zoom Rooms account settings page, and on the pages for lower tiers of the Zoom Rooms location hierarchy.
    • Zoom Event tickets
      Zoom Event organizers or hosts can now invite Zoom Rooms that are listed in an organizations directory to an event. The event will appear on the Zoom Room's calendar, which allows users to join the event from the room.

Resolved issues

  • Minor bug fixes

April 2, 2022 version 5.10.0 (421)

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • User interface updates
      The Zoom Rooms user interface (UI) has been updated to provide a more consistent experience. The new UI aligns with the Zoom desktop and mobile clients, matches Zoom’s current branding, and provides an optimized information architecture to better meet user needs. The in-meeting experience has been updated for Windows, Mac, and iPad Zoom Rooms. It has also been updated for Zoom Rooms Appliances and iOS and Android Zoom Rooms controllers. The out-of-meeting experience has been updated for Windows-attached and Web Zoom Rooms controllers. See our blog post for more information. 
    • Support for joining Zoom Events via pairing with Zoom Rooms
      Attendees can start or join live sessions via a Zoom Room that is paired to their Zoom clients on laptops or mobile devices. Start/Join buttons are only accessible on the Zoom client interface. 
    • Hide user personal information in contact details
      Enable this setting to hide users’ personal information in the contact details page. The affected fields are: personal note, company, department, manager, job title, locations, internal number, extension, direct number, phone number, email.
    • Removal of Calendar Integration error message 
      Previously, when a Zoom Room was not linked to a calendar, a prominent error on the Zoom Rooms Controller home page appeared: "This room needs to be connected to a calendar. Contact your Zoom Rooms admin". This error message has been updated to suggest that connection to a calendar is not mandatory. Organizations that do not wish to connect their Zoom Rooms to a calendar can have their admins hide the upcoming meetings list on Zoom Rooms Controllers, which removes the message completely.
  • In-meeting features
    • Live transcription (automated captions) notification
      If saving transcripts (captions) is disabled for the meeting, attendees will be notified. 
    • Reclaim host in breakout rooms
      The original meeting host can reclaim the host privileges in a breakout room if they leave and rejoin the meeting. 
    • Additional  chat settings
      Meeting and Webinar hosts can tap the Security button on the Zoom Rooms user interface to set the chat privileges for participants, attendees and panelists.
    • Persistent notification for waiting room
      When an attendee is in the Waiting Room a persistent notification will display on the Zoom Rooms display. 
    • Live streaming notification
      All attendees will see a notification when the meeting or webinar host starts a live stream. Attendees who join the session after the live stream has started will be notified when they enter. 
    • Enhanced in-meeting user abuse reporting 
      Users submitting reports will be required to include their email addresses.
    • Screen sharing indicator
      The green Share Content button on the room controller will change to a red Sharing Content button when a screen share initiated by the Zoom Room is in progress.
    • Web settings for gallery view
      Attending a webinar as a Zoom Room will display  gallery view according to web settings, such as show non-video participants. 
    • Gallery view when an attendee is spotlighted
      Zoom Rooms users can switch to gallery view when an attendee is spotlighted.
    • Language Interpretation relay enhancement
      Language interpreters can listen to either the main audio or another translator’s audio, which can be useful when a translator doesn’t know the main language being spoken, but knows another language the audio is being translated to. This feature must be enabled by Zoom.
  • Management features
    • Microsoft calendar authentication notification
      Microsoft plans to disable basic authentication for Microsoft Exchange Web Services for Office 365. If a Zoom Room calendar integration to a Microsoft O365 calendar service encounters authentication errors because of this change, a notification message will display.  Customers are encouraged to update any Zoom Rooms calendar integration with Microsoft O365 to use OAuth instead of basic authentication by re-authorizing their calendar integration in the Zoom admin portal. 
    • OnZoom disclaimer
  • Zoom for Home features
    • Support for displaying Zoom Events on the calendar
