Zoom Updates Required for Spring 2022
Beginning on February 8, 2022, Information Technology will adjust Zoom admin settings so that all Lewis & Clark Zoom accounts will be required to upgrade to at least version 5.9.0.
Clients running old versions will be prompted to download and install new updates upon launching the software. This ensures our clients can have a uniform experience, since new features often require all users to be on the same version. It also ensures a more stable and secure experience, since Zoom frequently creates updates to fix bugs and security vulnerabilities.
If you don’t want to have this happen unexpectedly—such as when you are late for a meeting—here’s how to update Zoom. For additional questions in regards to Zoom updates or minimum system requirements, please reach out to the IT Service Desk or take a look at our Zoom FAQ and help page.
This update was originally scheduled to occur before the start of the Spring 2022 term. It was postponed to avoid unnecessary complications related to the pivot to remote work and learning.
Users with very old versions of Zoom may encounter an ‘Auto Update Disabled’ error. If you encounter this, follow these directions to download and install the most current version of Zoom.
