Release Notes

Version 2.14 — July 6, 2023

Overview & Highlights

This release introduces Screen Share preview for macOS users, a simpler experience for Privacy Mode, the ability to automatically send users to Breakout Rooms, as well as other enhancements and stability improvements.

Zoom SDK Version: 5.15.2

Class minimum version as of this release: 2.10


Screen Share Preview

Until now, users sharing their screen would not have a visual way to confirm what they are sharing. This made it difficult to visually confirm if everyone was seeing the application/screen that the user intended to share. Class users on Mac will now have the ability to see their shared screen content on the Screen Share tab.

Moving Participants to Breakout Rooms Automatically

Class Instructors on Mac can now choose to automatically push users to breakout rooms. This reduces the transition time from Main Room to Breakout rooms as participants join rooms without having to click on the “Join” button. This option is available to be used for both “Assign Automatically” and “Assign Manually” when creating Breakout Rooms.

Simpler Privacy Mode

Users on macOS will now have a simpler experience when privacy mode is used in conjunction with Recordings. When recording starts, they will be notified to turn off the camera if they do not want their video to be recorded.

Automatic Verification

Admin users will now have the ability to control how Class verification feature is used in Class sessions. The available configuration options are AlwaysNever, and Let Instructors Decide. If Always is selected, users will be verified automatically upon joining Class sessions. If Let Instructors Decide is selected, instructors will have the ability to enable this on a per Class basis. If Never is selected, verification functions as it does by default. The default option for this feature upon release is set as Never in order to limit disruptions to ongoing Class sessions.
