Zoom brings changes to gesture recognition for PC, emojis come to life

zoom has updated his application desktop with one of the most used features of the version of iOS: gesture recognition. Starting today, users will be able to raise your hand and gestures will be recognized in a meeting as a request to speak. The second gesture is thumbs upwhich when displayed on the webcam automatically converts to an emoji.

The gesture recognition launches on desktop eight months after Zoom for iOS. It is worth mentioning that this feature is disabled by default, so if you want to use it, it must be enabled in the user account or group.

The Zoom Whiteboard also has news

Use gestures in video calls is not the only novelty. Zoom has announced a redesign of Whiteboard to make it a dedicated option within the app. Zoom Whiteboard now integrates directly with Zoom desktop clients, meetings, and touch rooms.

Whiteboard has proven to be a very useful addition to Zoom, and now the company wants to promote its use across all apps in its ecosystem. Users can create a whiteboard in the main menu or directly in the web version of Zoom.

Since this is a persistent feature, user-generated or shared Zoom Whiteboard files are saved to the cloud.

Other features include improvements to the Waiting room, maximum capacity during events, emoji reactions in Webinar, a centralized survey catalog, a solution for sales based on artificial intelligence call ZoomIQ, and more.

So you can use a unique meeting ID and password in Zoom

Zoom automatically adds passwords to accounts, and those passwords can be embedded in meeting links. For this reason, when you schedule a meeting, Zoom assumes that you want to use the automatically generated unique meeting ID instead of your personal meeting ID. In fact, there is no reason to use that personal identification.
