Zoom has been continuously adding new features to make virtual meetings more engaging, interactive and efficient. In this blog post, we will discuss the latest Zoom features that have been recently released or are expected to roll out soon.
Immersive View allows hosts to arrange participants in a virtual scene, such as a classroom or a conference room, to make virtual meetings more engaging and interactive. This feature gives participants a more natural feel of being in the same physical space.
The Multi-Pinning feature enables hosts and co-hosts to pin up to nine participants’ videos, making it easier to keep a focus on specific people during group discussions.
Focus mode is a feature that lets users hide all video feeds except for the speaker, reducing distractions during a meeting. This feature can be particularly helpful during long meetings, where distractions can cause fatigue and reduce productivity.
Live Transcription is a new Zoom feature that automatically transcribes audio in real-time during a meeting. This feature is particularly beneficial for participants with hearing disabilities or for people who are joining meetings from noisy environments.
Virtual backgrounds are not new to Zoom, but the platform has added several new virtual backgrounds to its library, such as a beach, a forest, or even outer space, allowing users to change their surroundings and make meetings more interesting.
Breakout Rooms are virtual rooms that allow meeting hosts to divide participants into smaller groups for more focused discussions. This feature can be particularly useful for brainstorming sessions or team-building activities.
Whiteboard is a feature that allows participants to collaborate on a virtual whiteboard during a meeting. This feature can be particularly helpful for visual learners or for participants who need to brainstorm or illustrate ideas.
End-to-End Encryption is a security feature that protects meeting data from unauthorized access. This feature is particularly crucial for organizations that handle sensitive information, such as healthcare or financial institutions.
Waiting Room Customization
Waiting Room Customization is a feature that allows meeting hosts to customize the waiting room with their brand colors, logos, and images, making it more personalized and professional.
Zoom has added several new features to its Webinar platform, such as registration pages, post-webinar surveys, and reporting capabilities, making it easier for businesses to host large-scale events.
Meeting Reactions is a feature that allows participants to react to meeting content with emojis, making it easier to express themselves during virtual meetings. This feature can also be used to provide real-time feedback to the presenter.
Video Filters is a feature that allows participants to apply filters to their video feeds, such as a sepia tone or a black and white effect, making meetings more fun and engaging.
Zoom has been continuously adding new features to enhance the virtual meeting experience for its users. From Immersive View to Video Filters, these new features are designed to make virtual meetings more engaging, interactive and efficient. As more people continue to work remotely, Zoom's new features will undoubtedly become essential tools for virtual communication.
