    New and enhanced features

    • General features
      • Additional MSI/PLIST/GPO/MDM options
        • Prevent use of Remote presentation control – DisableSlideControl 
          Disabled by default, this option will disable the remote presentation control feature on the client.
    • Meeting/webinar features
      • Profile photos for in-meeting chat 
        In-meeting chat now displays the participants’ profile photos, just as they appear in Zoom Chat. If no image is available for a participant, the participant’s initials appear. The account owner and admins can enable this for use in the Account-level web settings, and users can also control this feature in the client settings as well.
      • Prevent display name changes when SAML mapped 
        Administrators can configure SAML mapping so that the desktop client blocks SSO users from changing their display name when joining a meeting with the Join button.
      • Full availability of Live Transcription 
        As promised earlier this year, Zoom’s Live Transcription service is now available for Free accounts. This enhancement provides access to Live Transcription for all account and user types. Live transcription must be enabled in the User-level Settings page for use in meetings and webinars.
      • Seasonal scenes for Immersive View 
        Zoom is adding additional fall and Halloween themed scenes for use in Immersive View.
    • Meeting features
      • Two-way chat with Waiting Room participants 
        The meeting Host and Co-hosts can now chat back-and-forth with participants in the Waiting Room. Waiting Room messages can be sent to all participants in the Waiting Room or just individual participants. Only the host/co-host can see responses from those in the Waiting Room. This feature requires client version 5.8.0 or higher.
    • Chat features
      • Unread message badge in search results 
        The search results for contacts and channels include the unread badge counts for each. For high volume users who receive a constant influx of new messages, these badge counts help to visually differentiate between contacts and channels that would otherwise all look the same.
      • Enhancements to @ mentions page 
        The @ me mentions page now indicates which messages are unread.
      • Highlighted @ mentions 
        When you are mentioned in a channel or multi-user chat, the message you are mentioned in will be temporarily highlighted in the conversation.
      • Chat history button 
        Accessing your history of recent chats now has a dedicated button. This provides quick access to the 10 previous chats you accessed, including channels, 1-on-1 chats, and unnamed multi-user chats.
