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.
Zoom activates one-time passwords
The new update also implements one-time passwords for those who haven’t enabled 2-Step Verification.
If Zoom detects a suspicious login, it will email email the login password. This layer of security includes sending a unique key that expires when entered.
Other news in the latest Zoom update
The latest patch (5.10.3) brings improvements to interactions during video calls. This means that in case the messages increase, the app will turn off notifications to prevent attendees from being distracted.
There has also been implemented tag engine to react to certain words or phrases in group chats. Administrators can set policies to follow when users send unauthorized messages.
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.
If you have a regularly scheduled meeting with friends, a new invitation (with a new meeting id) can be sent for each meeting, just to be sure.
1. In the Zoom app, click the button Schedule. If you are using the web interface, Click on Schedule a meeting on the top line. In any case, the window will appear Schedule meeting.
2. If desired, enter a subject and description of the meeting.
3. Search meeting ID and make sure that Generate automatically is selected. This will generate a unique ID for that meeting instead of using the Personal Meeting ID.
4. Under the header Security, a code will be assigned; can be changed.
5. Click Advanced Options whether you want to allow participants to join without having to use the lobby (not recommended), mute them on entry, automatically record the meeting, or approve or block entries from specific geographic areas.
7. Click on Save.
8. And that’s it. When ready, you can click the blue button start this meeting either use the generated meeting link.
