Zoom launches Automatic Updates for Desktop Clients

Share post:

Zoom has introduced an automatic update function for desktop clients.

Although it does not yet support Linux, the new feature is available for desktop Zoom customers running Windows and macOS. Zoom also gives users the privilege of choosing whether they do not want the automatic update.

Jeromie Clark, Security & Privacy Technical Product Manager at Zoom, puts it this way: “For most individual users, automatic updates will be enabled by default. When enabled, users will have the opportunity to opt-out of automatic updates for their desktop client after the first install or first update where this feature is present.” For users interested in removing the automatic update, they can do so by changing the “preference at any time by checking or unchecking ‘Automatically keep my Zoom up to date’ under Zoom > Settings > General.”

Zoom users can also select the frequency of desired updates slowly or quickly, and the slow option allows users to receive less frequent updates with a particular focus on stability. Additionally, the company pointed out that, regardless of the channel selected, critical security updates are automatically rolled out to users.
