Changes to existing features

  • Cloud recording storage updates
    Cloud recording storage limits will be expanded to 5GB per licensed user on Pro and Business accounts. Previously, Pro and Business accounts had 1GB of cloud recording storage per license.

New and enhanced features

    • Allow participants to view profile cards in a meeting
      Account owners and admins can enable a setting to show participant profile cards in meetings. When enabled, participants can quickly view additional information about other participants, such as their title, local time, and personal notes, by hovering over their avatar or clicking on their video panel and selecting View Profile. Profile cards for unregistered users will not be visible. For external users, participants can click a button to connect with them, and once connected can see their profile information. This setting is available at the account level and requires client version 5.11.0 or higher.
    • Restrict which groups can create channels
      Account owners and admins can restrict which groups can create public and/or private channels. This setting may impact new and existing groups, and if a user belongs to two or more groups, the most restrictive setting will apply. This setting is only available at the group level and requires client version 5.11.0 or higher; it does not have backward compatibility. Changes will not take effect immediately; users must sign out and sign back in for this change to take effect.
    • Set content rating restrictions for GIF images
      Account owners and admins can restrict certain GIF images in Zoom Chat based on GIPHY’s content rating system. Content ratings include G, PG, PG-13, and R. The default content rating is G. This setting is available at the account level and requires client version 5.11.0 or higher.

    • Configure different local retention policies at the group level
      Account owners and admins can set group-specific local storage policies when creating a new group or editing an existing one. Group-specific local storage periods will override any account-level local retention policies, unless it’s locked at the account level. If a user belongs to multiple groups, the most restrictive policy applies. This setting requires client version 5.11.0 or higher.
    • Configure cloud retention policies at the channel level
      Account owners and admins can set channel-specific cloud storage policies when editing a channel in the web portal. Channel-specific cloud storage periods will override any account- or group-level retention settings, unless it’s locked or disabled at the account level.
    • Support for Chat Etiquette policies in Webinar Q&A
      When admins apply Chat Etiquette policies to in-meeting/webinar chat, these policies also apply to webinar Q&As. When enabled, users are notified when their webinar Q&A messages trigger Chat Etiquette policies. Webinar attendees must be on client version 5.11.0 or higher for Chat Etiquette policies to apply to webinar Q&A.
    • Support for translated captions
      Account owners and admins can enable Translated Captions, which allows users to enable automated translated captions in language pairs in meetings; it also provides a speaking language list and translation language list. These settings are available at the account, group, and user levels. This feature is only available for Zoom One Business Plus and Zoom One Enterprise Plus accounts.
    • Enhancements to Operation Logs
      Account owners and admins can review and export an audit log that contains a list of all admin actions.

This enhancement allows the admin to export this data in the Operations Log. This feature is enabled by default.
    • Setting added to allow multiple participants to screen share
      Account owners and admins can enable a setting in the Zoom web portal to allow multiple participants to screen share simultaneously, which allows hosts to enable this feature when scheduling a meeting. Previously, hosts could only enable this setting once the meeting had started. This feature must be enabled by Zoom.
    • Support for multiple screen sharing in webinars
      When enabled, the new setting in the Zoom web portal to allow multiple participants to share simultaneously also applies to Zoom Webinars, and is available for the host and panelists to provide webinar attendees with the experience of viewing simultaneous presentations. Webinar attendees can choose which screen to view, such as seeing the content in their language when a presentation is shared in different languages. This feature requires client version 5.11.0 or higher and is not supported in webinars using Backstage.
  • Whiteboard features
    • Add additional shapes for Zoom Whiteboard 
      Additional shapes can be created to facilitate flow charts, data flow diagrams, and organization charts. These shapes can be added and edited in the out-of-meeting Whiteboard experience.

      1080p is enabled for all Video SDK accounts, including existing accounts and newly provisioned accounts. The specific platform still needs to support it to fully utilize this resolution.
    • Support for subsessions (breakout rooms) for Video SDK accounts
      The Subsession feature is enabled for all Video SDK accounts, including existing accounts and newly provisioned accounts. Subsessions are breakout rooms that split the meeting into different sessions, and allow the host to assign participants to subsessions when scheduling, broadcast messages to participants, edit subsessions when they’re open, and view activity statuses of participants in subsessions.

Release notes for Zoom Phone

New and enhanced features

  • Administrator features
    • Alerts and notifications
      Route group, devices and call queue alerts and notifications are now located under Account Management to better align with other products. Account owners and admins with privileges can add alerts for different modules, such as Route Group and Device Management, to be notified at desired time intervals. If using Power Pack, admins can additionally set up alerts for call queue management and generate reports to identify alerts according to severities.
    • Call waiting
      Account owners and admins can choose different options when a user is busy in another call and another call is waiting to be answered by that user. In addition to the default holding/ending/dismissing the call, the setting can be changed to forward the call to voicemail/videomail or another extension/external number/external contact, to play a message then disconnect, or play a busy signal.
    • Enhancement to personal voicemail and videomail
      Account owners and admins can allow their users to share their voicemails as part of their policy when download is disabled for those users.
    • Enhancement to call and recording logs
      Account owners and admins can view call and recording log details to show all  participants.
    • Enhancement to call handling
      Account owners and admins have now access to more granular options for call handling, forwarding and overflow. In addition to being able to add external numbers, the call handling settings at the user  level allow admins and users to forward the call to external contacts. The overflow settings allow forwarding calls to external numbers in addition to the current settings.
    • Enhancement to BYOC routing rules
      The routing setting, Directory Backup Routing Rules has been renamed Routing Rules to better classify SIP group and route group as BYOC. This provides better plan flexibilities to admins. SIP groups will be mandatory for any BYOC numbers moving forward. For forwarded calls, the original calling number will be sent instead of the called number.
    • Enhancement to Host Desking timeout session
      This feature enables Admins to configure additional Hot Desking Session Timeout settings.  The available Time Out values have been extended to include additional options of 5, 10, 15 and 30 minutes. Furthermore, these settings are now available to be configured on a per site basis.
    • Enhancement to templates for auto receptionist and call queue
      Templates for auto receptionist and call queue now support modular configuration for business hours and call handling, closed hours and call handling, and holiday hours. “Modular” means that you can selectively apply any of these parts of the template to your targets without impacting other settings, so for example you can push a schedule of Holidays and/or an update a Greeting to target auto receptionists and call queues, without impacting anything else. Previously only business hours supported the modular format.
    • Enhancement to emergency location detection
      The nomadic emergency services feature has been enhanced to help customers that use NAT (network address translation) and/or VPN (virtual private network) topologies. One enhancement allows you to specify that both the public IP AND private IP address/subnet must both match before considering a given location to be ‘detected’ – this is particularly important for NAT topologies where multiple buildings might have the same public IP address but different private IP subnets.  The other enhancement is an Excluded Location, which means “if a user’s network data matches <these> values, consider the user to still be in an unknown location” i.e. this location is ‘excluded’ from automatic location detection. This is particularly important for VPN topologies when the IP address of users cannot be relied upon to determine user locations and wireless access point (BSS_ID) data is not available. When configuring emergency location information, admins can define one or more Excluded Locations for each site. The two features can be used in combination, to define minimum match criteria for Excluded locations, as well as for regular locations.  Location related error checking has also been enhanced: For personal locations, a warning is provided if a user-created personal location appears to duplicate an existing company location. For company locations, warnings are provided if the IP address format appears to be incorrect, or if the same emergency address is being used in multiple locations. This feature set must be enabled by Zoom.
    • Enhancement to international calling policy settings
      Customers now have the option to call out to Satellite phones and other special destinations using a BYOC carrier (and limited to BYOC). This can be enabled at the account, group, site and user levels.
