You get back on your separate chat solution and go through outstanding chats you missed during the call, dig through your contact lists to find the original team member, and ask them for the link. They finally answer once they’re off their back-to-backs, but you just lost an hour of time you could’ve been working on the project.

Sound familiar? When you hop between communication solutions, you often lose two precious resources: time and information. Fragmented experiences can lead to misaligned expectations, muddy deadlines, missed action items, and diminished productivity. 

Continuous meeting chat fills gaps where information may have previously seeped through. With this feature, meeting chats can seamlessly live on after a meeting in our persistent chat solution, Zoom Team Chat — creating continuity of information, regardless if someone joins or leaves a meeting. 

Keep the conversation going with continuous meeting chat

Continuous meeting chat is an expansion of our original in-meeting chat, which allows you to chat with other attendees during a Zoom Meeting. The new feature allows meeting participants to communicate before, during, and after a meeting by creating a dedicated group chat in Zoom Team Chat for meeting participants. When enabled, in-meeting chats will show up in that group chat as they are sent in the meeting, allowing conversations to continue after a meeting ends. When setting up a recurring meeting, you’ll have a group chat that follows the group for the entire project, in and out of meetings.

With continuous meeting chat, you can:

  • Create a dedicated group chat for scheduled meetings
  • Send attendees the agenda before the meeting 
  • Send a message into the meeting chat to say you’re running late or can’t join the call, without having to be in the meeting
  • After the meeting, use the meeting summary generated by Zoom AI Companion* to capture relevant action items and populate them in the corresponding chat
  • Continue conversations even after the meeting has ended, or pick up on details if you had to miss the call
