The Zoom video calling app is very popular and is often used to hold virtual meetings. In order for them to be maintained without interruption and for the use of Zoom to be stable, it is necessary to always have the latest version of the application and to update regularly.
Zoom is used on different devices, so updating them may vary by procedure.
It is very useful to know that from November on Windows and Mac computers updates in the Zoom application can take place automatically. A post on Zoom’s blog states that this can be achieved with a few clicks and the user can be calm about the implementation of the update in the future.
To set this setting, it is very important that you as a user have administrator privileges on the computer you are using, because only with them can the automatic Zoom update be selected.
First you need to open the Zoom application on your computer and click on the icon of your account in the upper right corner. Then select an option from the drop-down menu „Settings“, and inside the new window, click on the left „General“.
Inside the menu on the right you now need to place the code section „Zoom updates“ and check the option „Automatically keep Zoom up to date“. The user still has to choose how often he wants to update the application. With option selection „Slow“ the user receives fewer updates, but the operation of the application is more stable. „Fast“ the option means more frequent updates, but this can affect the stability of the application and the reliability of establishing an optimal connection via video call.
Finally, you only need to save the changed settings and updates will take place automatically in the future.
If you are a Linux user or if you have some problems with automatic updates, in the Zoom application you can “force” the application to search for available updates.
You need to open the user profile icon in the upper right corner again and click on in the drop-down menu „Check for updates“. After that it will open „Zoom update“ the window and the application will automatically search for available updates. If an update is available, it will be installed immediately. In case it is not, the user will receive a notification „You are up to date“.
Android device users can update the Zoom app via the Google Play Store. You need to open the Google Play Store and type in the search bar „Zoom“. Once the search results are obtained, you need to click on the Zoom application.
In case a button is available after that „Update“ (Update), you need to click on it and the Zoom application will get a new update.
When „Update“ the button is missing, meaning the user has the latest version of the Zoom app.
For the iPhone and iPad, the App Store can also be used to check for available updates.
Once the App Store opens, you need to click on the button at the bottom of the screen „Updates“. A list of applications used on the device and available updates will appear inside it. In addition to the Zoom application, a new update should be available and you just need to click on „Update“ in order to take it over. .
How „Update“ the button inside this menu is not available, which means that the user already has the latest version of the Zoom application.
