Release notes for the Zoom PWA

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • New Admin Policy
      • AutoLoginWithChromeBookUserAccount - Auto-direct PWA login to Google Authentication page
        To make login quicker and easier for Chromebook users, admins can set this policy to automatically direct PWA users to the Google Authentication page, where users can select their Google credentials.This does not apply if DisableGoogleLogin is set to True.
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Enhanced registrant authentication option
      Allows hosts to require webinar and meeting registrants be signed-in to the Zoom account associated with the email they registered to join this session with. If trying to join without being signed-in or signed-in with the wrong account, they will be notified and given the option to sign-in or switch account. This feature will not be immediately available, as it is dependent on a backend server update currently scheduled for February 7, 2022.
    • Save custom gallery view order
      Meeting hosts can save the customized gallery view order for subsequent meetings. The customized gallery order is saved to each unique meeting ID, which allows the host to load the saved customized gallery order to avoid continually customizing the gallery order for each meeting.
  • Meeting features
    • Create, remove, rename breakout rooms after launch
      Breakout rooms no longer need to be closed in order to rename or add/remove additional rooms. Account owners and admins can enable the ability for hosts to create, remove, and rename breakout rooms while they are open and in use. This feature must be enabled by Zoom.
