Popular video conferencing app Zoom has announced its latest update, including new features centred around privacy, functionality, and Apple’s tablet lineup. one among the more notable additions this point around is Zoom’s new ability to react to iPad users’ gestures during a gathering automatically.
This isn’t the primary time Zoom has released an update with features specifically for its iPad users. Back in May, for instance, the corporate added the power to trace a user as they moved, assuming the user had one among Apple’s latest iPad Pro models with Center Stage.
This time around, Zoom says that it’s added new functionality that permits iPad users to use real-life gestures, like raising a hand to greet someone and automatically translate those gestures into meeting reactions.
Zoom says this new feature is restricted to only two gestures at launch: Thumbs Up and lift Hand. After that, other features join the iPad functionality, including additional security and privacy features for shared lines, increased queue visibility, the new ability to toggle a gathering between mobile and desktop quickly, and new controls for admins.
Administrators can, for instance, prevent specific people or entire groups from sharing their screens if a guest joins the meeting. This may help prevent employees from accidentally revealing sensitive information from people outside of the corporate or division.
