Zoom, the Postal Service’s video conferencing platform, has added several enhancements for meetings and webinars.
Here are some of the new features and how they work:
• Screen share preview: No longer will users sharing screens have to ask, “Can you see my screen?” By hovering a mouse near the meeting controls toolbar, a preview of the content/window being shared will appear.
• Advanced share: Users can now share PowerPoint presentations as a virtual background and their video feed will be imposed directly on the screen.
• Whiteboard: A tab for whiteboards has been added in Zoom Team Chat, and users can now create a whiteboard in the Zoom web portal or in a meeting or webinar. In addition, content can be added outside of a meeting or webinar and whiteboards can be saved for future use.
• Annotation toggle pen: The pen becomes available in the lower-left corner of the screen when hosts share their screens, making it easier to access the annotation tool.
