Launch of Zoom Version 3.0

To the Zoom Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that we announce the release of Zoom Version 3.0, available immediately.

This is truly our biggest release ever. What’s new?

Group Messaging with Presence

Group MessagingZoom 3.0 marries group messaging with group meeting. You can send group text, images and push-to-talk messages to anyone on desktop, tablet or mobile devices.  You can start a group message from one device and continue the conversation on another. It automatically builds your contact list from phone, account and domain; and displays the contact’s device and presence status.

You can even promote the conversation to a video or screen sharing meeting with 1-click and it will ring all members at-once. It’s free and we think you will love it!
