Zoom: Zoom adds 5 new features to make you look good and have fun during meetings – Latest news


Zoom has added five new features to make people look good at video conferencing while working from home, and also having fun with friends and colleagues. New features include filters, lighting, reactions, noise cancellation and more control in presentations. These new features incorporate fun and casual elements to resemble the office culture of a virtual meeting, making working from home less challenging.

Low lighting is a common problem while working from home and Zoom now offers granular control over touch intensity and lighting adjustment. You can also change the panel brightness and the amount of skin softening to look better in video chats.

Zoom has also improved noise suppression during video calls to minimize discomfort such as dog barking, fan hum, and children playing in the background. “In the low environment, soft background music can complement a yoga class or game night. The high suppression function provides distraction-free audio for important meetings and presentations so you can sound your best, ”Zoom said in a statement.

When you share your PowerPoint or Keynote presentations as a virtual background, you can overlay your video on the slides, similar to meteorologist style. You can move your video anywhere on the screen and even resize it when needed.

To add fun to gatherings, Zoom now offers filters and you can use unicorn horns, eye patch, or other filters to make others laugh. Also, you can use color filters and turn your video into a black and white photo. Lastly, you can even react with a dedicated ‘Reactions’ button with reactions like celebrate, laugh or heart.

These functions are accessible in Zoom 5.2. To limit this functionality, users can disable meeting filters at the account, group, and user levels in the Zoom web portal.
