The account owner and admins can enable this for use in the Account-level web settings, and users can also control this feature in the client settings as well.

  • Chat features
    • Unread message badge in search results

Windows版本更新資訊-September 22, 2021

version 5.8.0 (1324) for Windows

Note: The client release for Windows was delayed until Sept 23, 2021.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • Unique file names for local recordings Each file created as part of a local recording will be given a unique file name. The type of file will start the name (video, audio), followed by a string of numbers. Users will also be provided suggestions on what to rename the files, if they choose to further customize the file names.
    • Additional MSI/PLIST/GPO options
      • Disable auto launch SSO URL – DisableAutoLaunchSSO 
        Disabled by default, this option prevents Zoom from automatically launching the previously used SSO URL. This is useful for users with multiple accounts, each having their own SSO URL.
    • Support for additional time zones Scheduling on the client now supports the GMT -7 Yukon, GMT +2 Chisinau, and GMT +5:30 Colombo time zones, which were already supported when scheduling in the web portal. 
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Stop incoming video 
      Users in a meeting can easily disable all incoming video through in-meeting controls. This may be done to preserve bandwidth for shared content, or to avoid mental fatigue from viewing multiple, active video participants. The account owner and admins can enable this for use in meetings at the Account-, Group-, and User-level web settings. Once enabled through web settings, users must then enable it for use in the Desktop client’s Video settings. 
    • Poll access for alternative hosts 
      If meeting hosts add alternative hosts to their meeting, they can allow alternative hosts to add or edit polls. The alternative host in the meeting will have the additional in-meeting options to add or edit a poll, which launches the web portal to make the changes.
    • Easier emoji selection for in-meeting chat 
      After entering ‘:’ and two or more letters, available emojis matching that description will be shown. For example, entering “:jo” will provide the following matching emojis: :joy:, :joy_cat:, :joystick:, :majong:, and :black_joker:
    • Aligned separate audio tracks for local recordings 
      When recording separate audio tracks for a local recording, the audio tracks will be aligned, in that each track is in sync with each other and start at the same. Recording tracks will increase in size slightly, as extra padding will be added to each file to ensure tracks all begin at the same time.
    • Updated recording privacy disclaimer 
      The recording disclaimer has been updated to provide clearer information regarding how their data is being handled and who can access it.
  • Meeting features
    • Security settings overview The host and co-host in a meeting can quickly check what security features are currently in effect for the meeting they are hosting. This information is accessible through the in-meeting encryption shield, located in the top-left corner of the meeting.
    • Participant attendance status 
      If the host has the Google or Outlook calendar integration configured, Zoom will display a list of others invited to the meeting but not yet in attendance, allowing for quick checks if everyone is in attendance yet. Their invite response (Accepted, Declined, Maybe) is listed with their name and the host can easily invite them to the meeting from the participants panel. This feature can be enabled for use in meetings at the Account-, Group-, and User-level web settings, and will initially be available only for free accounts as part of a beta.
  • Chat features
    • Rich text formatting support
      Enhanced rich text message capabilities allow for better chat messages formatting options. These options are available for composing a new message, replies, and editing messages. Expanded options for the desktop client include bold, italics, underlining, strikethrough, highlight and text color, font size, bulleted and numbered lists, hyperlinks, and indenting. Mobile apps will gain the ability to bold, italicize, strikethrough, underline, and create a bulleted or numbered list.
    • Quote messages 
      Users can quote specific messages sent in a channel, which helps avoid confusion and eliminates the need for others to scroll up to view the initial question or message. Images and bot messages cannot be quoted.
    • Additional customization for Personal Note 
      The Personal Note can be configured to display for a specific period of time, as well as appearing above the text input box when someone is composing a message to you. For example, a user may say they are Out of office for the next few days, and that note will appear above the drafted message when someone is chatting directly with or mentioning them, warning them of the user’s current unavailability.
    • Support for search and Link Previews with Advanced Chat Encryption 
      Chat history search and hyperlink previews are now supported when Advanced Chat Encryption is enabled. Search is limited to messages that have already been decrypted and are stored on the device being used to perform the search. Link previews must first be enabled by the account admin in the web portal, as the default for this setting is off.
    • Clearer notification when converting a group-chat into a channel 
      When a multi-user chat is named, this converts the group chat into an official chat channel. The user changing the channel will be more informed of the effect of the change, and other users in the group will be notified of the changes as well, helping them locate the channel by its new name.
    • Updated New Chat button 
      To save space for chat contacts and channels, the New Chat button has been updated and moved in-line with other chat buttons, such as bookmarked messages, files, and contact requests.
  • Zoom Phone features
    • UI enhancement to phone number labels 
      When searching for phone users using the dial pad or SMS search field, users can view the associated phone number labels by clicking or tapping the right arrow icon.
    • Prompt for emergency address 
      If the admin has enabled nomadic emergency services and personal locations; or allowed users to manage their emergency address, users will receive prompts to confirm or update their emergency addresses until they do so.

  • Minor bug fixes
  • Security enhancements
  • Resolved an issue regarding slow connections after switching networks 
  • Resolved an issue for a subset of users regarding mute upon entry and recording disclaimer prompts

Windows版本更新資訊-August 23, 2021

version 5.7.6 (1055) for Windows

Changes to existing features

  • MSI flag required for Outlook IM Integration on MSI deployments
    Due to a potential conflict with components shared with other Microsoft products, such as Skype and Teams, the integration for Outlook status syncing will not be automatically available with MSI deployments. This must be deployed by admins with the existing MSI/GPO option IntegrateZoomWithOutlook. The exe version is unaffected, as it already required admin credentials to be enabled.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • SSO logout notifications 
      If the existing Enforce automatic logout after user has been logged in for x days SSO setting is enabled, users are forewarned when they will be automatically signed out of the desktop client and mobile app. Warnings will be provided at login, 24 hours, 1 hour, and 5 minutes before logout.
  • Meeting/webinar features
    • Transfer meetings between devices 
      Seamlessly transition meetings from mobile to desktop and back to mobile, allowing you to take advantage of the mobility of the mobile client and the more feature-rich desktop client to suit your needs. This feature will not be immediately available, as it is dependent on a web release currently scheduled for August 21, 2021, and will be rolled out to customers over time.
    • Optimize for video auto-detect 
      When Optimize for video clip is enabled but no video is detected, the client will automatically disable this feature to provide better visual quality of the shared content, then automatically re-enable when video is detected again.
  • Meeting features
    • Limit screen sharing for meetings with external participants 
      Admins can apply restrictions to specific users or to groups through web settings to prevent these users from screen sharing when a guest participant (a user external to the host’s account) joins a meeting. These users will still be able to screen share when there are no guest participants.
  • Chat features
    • Chat sidebar enhancements 
      Further quality-of-life enhancements to the chat sidebar, including easy and clear designation if a channel is public or private. For the desktop clients, fewer chats/channels are shown per group, as well as the ability to expand to see more, in order to provide greater overall visibility of all chats and channels.
    • Relocation of Search bar 
      The Search bar in the client has been relocated to the left side of the client.
  • Phone features
    • Privacy feature for shared lines 
      If enabled by an account owner and admin, shared line group and shared line appearance members can lock their current call. This prevents others from picking up a held call, listening, whispering, barging, or taking over the call.
    • Company phone number while in a call Phone users can view their own company number and extension while in a call. Previously, only the extension was displayed.
    • Phone number labels
      If phone number labels were set in the web portal, they will show in user profile cards and dial paid search results. This feature will not be immediately available, as it is dependent on a web release currently scheduled for August 29, 2021.
