Recent Zoom updates

The most recent Zoom updates  - 5.6.1 - addressed several minor bugs, as well as introduced some additional features. Below are the main changes that affect users at Lewis & Clark.

  • Enhanced search filter in Chat: @me mentions
  • Chat searches can be narrowed to just include results containing mentions of the person who is searching.
  • Fixed a bug where Breakout room timers could not be set to less than 30 minutes.
  • Resolved an issue regarding sharing slides on an iPad used as a second monitor
  • Resolved an issue for a subset of users regarding annotation with an extended display on an iPad and Apple Pencil

In EdTech, we’ve found that many errors, and odd or unusual behavior in Zoom can be addressed by simply updating the Zoom client. Update today at https://zoom.us/download.
