At Zoom, we understand that your conference room meetings are as dynamic as your work. There’s content being shared, reactions being given, chats and questions coming in — and it’s all part of the modern meeting experience. Even though you’re a master of multitasking, keeping track of all these elements can be difficult.
To help you enjoy all that these meetings have to offer, we’ve released Zoom Rooms Enhanced Views, which allows you and room participants to not only more easily see shared content, and in-meeting chat messages, but also get a more engaging view of your meeting participants.
The days of chat notifications distracting from your presentation are now over! The chat panel enhancement for Zoom Rooms provides a new, persistent chat window in all of our existing views, including Gallery, Active Speaker, and Thumbnail. This persistent chat window is located right next to the main window where attendees share their screen or the active speaker is presenting.
This creates a simple and intuitive view where presenters and in-room attendees can see both the meeting attendees, the in-meeting chat window, and the active speaker/shared content.
Whether you’re in a brainstorming session, a sales presentation, or your weekly check-in with your team, our chat panel enhancement has the ability to transform the way you connect with your meeting attendees.
Here are just a few of the ways you can use the chat panel enhancement in your daily meetings:
In addition to our chat panel enhancement, we are releasing an enhancement to Thumbnail Views as well!
In the past, users with multiple screens in a Zoom Room had to choose between Speaker View and Gallery View, restricting their ability to see meeting participants while viewing the active speaker or shared content.
With the enhancement to the Thumbnail View in Zoom Rooms, Zoom Rooms customers will be able to use the Thumbnail View with multiple screens in a Zoom Room. In this view, attendees in Zoom Rooms can view every aspect of the meeting, including the shared content, the active speaker, and the meeting participants at the same time, as well as the persistent chat window and reactions. Zoom Rooms users will be able to put the thumbnail row of participants on the top or the bottom of the screen.
The new viewing modes are available to all Zoom Rooms customers at no additional cost. To enable them, make sure your Zoom Rooms are updated to the latest version. You can check all versions of your Zoom Rooms and update them from the Zoom Rooms management interface.
