Zoom rolled out an update that is very helpful for people using interpreters or needing to ensure they can see a specific speaker. I wanted to ensure that you all were aware.

Zoom Updates for Sept 1

  • Custom gallery view organization - Windows, macOS

Host and co-host can now re-order the gallery view to suit their needs, and choose whether to deploy this view to participants, or allow participants to create their own custom views. Simply click and drag videos to the position you want them in gallery view, and this layout will remain in place until released.

  • Multi-pin and multi-spotlight - Windows, macOS

With host permission, users will now be able to pin up to 9 participants on their end. The host can also spotlight up to 9 participants for everyone in the meeting.
