      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.

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.
