Zoom Introduces Filters
Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) has launched new features like filters, lighting, reactions, noise cancellation and more control on presentations. These new features bring in the casual and fun elements to resemble the office culture on a virtual meeting, making working from home less challenging.
Zoom wants to empower people to feel their best in virtual meetings, express their individuality, and build moments of fun with new features that uplevel the video game. Zoom filters, reactions, improved lighting capabilities, and enhanced noise suppression make sure that wherever and however one meets, it’s more fun with Zoom.
#NoFilter? No thanks!
Grow unicorn horns, wear a pirate eye patch, or hang out on the slopes in aerospace goggles to level up the team calls, happy hours, or game nights.
Use color filters and turn your video into a black-and-white photo, or dip your world in pink and let your unique personality fill every inch of the screen.
Feel more confident on video
With granular control over the intensity of touch-ups and lighting adjustment, one is ensured to be well-lit in any lighting. Change the brightness of the panel and amount of skin smoothing to put your best video frame forward.
Silence the noise
Zoom’s improved noise suppressions makes disturbances like barking dogs, a whirring fan, and kids playing in the background nearly disappear. At the low setting, soft background music can complement a yoga class or game night. The high suppression feature gives the distraction-free audio for important meetings and presentations so one can sound their best.
Show your reactions
Silence is no longer awkward with more reactions like celebrate, laugh, or heart. Click on the ‘Reactions’ button and share how you’re feeling in the moment.
More ways to ‘wow’ when you present
Present like a boss when you share your PowerPoint or Keynote presentations as a virtual background. Your video will overlay on the slides – weathercaster style. You can move your video to any part of the screen and even resize so that you’re truly one with your message.
Start the fun
These features are accessible on Zoom 5.2. To limit this functionality, users can disable meeting filters at the account, group, and user levels in the Zoom web portal.
