Update on Zoom Upgrade

Author: Lenette Votava

On Monday, May 18, OIT system administrators pushed out the Zoom 5.0 client upgrade to all University-owned (managed) Windows and Mac computers that had not already installed it.

Effective Saturday, May 30, all managed and unmanaged computers must have the Zoom 5.0 client installed. A new encryption will be activated in Zoom version 5.0 and above for additional security. Any Zoom software older than Zoom 5.0 must be upgraded before you can join a meeting/class after May 30.

Zoom also released an update (v5.0.3) which is now available to download and includes these features:

  • Require consent if the host mutes, then unmutes a participant
  • A new ringtone has been added to the Waiting Room

To find out what version of Zoom you have on your computer and/or download the most recent Zoom update, follow the instructions in this Zoom website article.

NOTE: Your installation of Zoom may automatically update to the latest version.
