Zoom has released a new version of its app for Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android operating systems, including several new and enhanced features that you may find useful. Highlights include:

  • Pronouns – You can now add your pronouns to your account. These pronouns are then displayed in your contact card as well as your display name in meetings and webinars.
  • Share Screen to All Breakout Rooms – When sharing their screen in the main session, the host or co-host can now share their screen to all active Breakout Rooms.
  • Request Live Transcription Enablement as Participant – Meeting participants and webinar attendees can now request the host or co-host enable Live Transcription. This request may be anonymous.

For a complete list of all the new and enhanced features in the new version of the Zoom app (version 5.7.0), please see Zoom’s release notes.

Version 5.7.0 must be installed to use these new features. If you are unsure which version of the Zoom client you are currently running, you can check which version number you currently have. Please visit the Zoom Help Center for information on downloading the latest Zoom update.
