Zoom update required before May 30, 2020

Dear DDC Community,

Zoom has announced that all participants in meetings will be required to have the latest version of their software beginning May 30, 2020. It is important that you update your Zoom client or app prior to that date to avoid any hassle with signing on. This is easy to do!

For PC’s/Mac: open Zoom on your computer. If a new version is available, there will be a notice on the screen when you start the application. Simply follow the links and instructions for downloading the latest version. You can also download the latest version manually from Zoom directly here.

For mobile devices: go to the App Store (for iPhone/iPad) or Google Play store (for Android devices), search for Zoom, go to the details page and see if “Update” appears. If it does, simply tap and install the update. If you have automatic updates turned on for your device, this will be done automatically for you periodically, but it’s best to check just in case. To check your version, open the Zoom app, tap on “Settings” then “About”. Your version should be 5.0 or greater.

Doing this upgrade now will help save you time and potential confusion after the May 30th deadline. Thank you!
