Update to the latest version of Zoom; smart recordings enabled

In order to make the Zoom experience consistent across the Case Western Reserve University community, the minimum software version requirement for Zoom will be set to the latest version, 5.12.9, beginning today (Jan. 13). Many new features implemented over the past several months require the latest version of the application.

If your Zoom software is not current, when you attempt to sign into the client desktop application (versus the web portal) you will be prompted to install the latest version.

If you are on a managed device, your Zoom application should be automatically updated for you; no action needs to be taken. If you do not have administrator access to your computer, contact your local IT administrator for further assistance.

To update your desktop Zoom application, in the top right corner of the application, click on the profile icon or your initials and select “Check for Updates” from the menu. Alternatively you can also download the latest version from zoom.us/download.

Smart recordings is a feature that is now available in Zoom. It allows the host’s cloud recordings to contain smart chapters and get key takeaways from them for easier viewing. Learn how to enable this feature.
