Zoom updates coming Aug. 18

If you’re a McMaster student, faculty or staff member using the Zoom app, keep an eye on the upcoming updates and make sure to run them.

Making sure your apps are up to date is key to staying secure and protecting your data.

Zoom releases updates and minor fixes for reported bugs on a regular basis and recommends that users stay current with the latest version of the Zoom app to leverage any new functionality and security features.

McMaster UTS will be updating the minimum client version to all users on a quarterly basis. The next update is scheduled for Thursday Aug. 18, 2022.

The next time you log in to Zoom after the Aug. 18 update, you may be prompted to install the updates before using the app if your current version is below the minimum version. Please take this into consideration and give yourself enough time to run the update before starting or joining a meeting.

If your device is a managed device, your local IT support may need to update Zoom for you.
