  • Expanded live translation and live transcription makes meetings even more inclusive with the addition of real time, automated translation, as well as expansion of Zooms existing live transcription, with support for multiple languages coming later this year.
  • Zoom Events enables event managers to host multi-track and multi-day virtual and hybrid events.
  • Zoom Rooms Smart Gallery uses AI to create individual video feeds of in-room participants, so they’re viewed clearly and equally by remote employees, creating a more inclusive hybrid work experience.
