Zoom has announced it is bringing its videoconferencing software to smart displays.
As the coronavirus pandemic took off, Zoom quickly established itself as the videoconferencing solution of choice for professional, religious and personal use. As a result, the company’s business skyrocketed and it has been expanding its offerings to keep up with demand and improve the user experience.
Now Zoom is bringing its software to smart displays in an effort to make it even easier to use at home. The software will be available on Amazon Echo Show, Portal from Facebook and Google Nest Hub Max.
“With 42% of the U.S. labor force working from home full time, businesses can maintain their competitive edge by finding ways to increase productivity, enhance efficiency, and enable collaboration,” writes Zoom’s Jeff Smith. “With Zoom on your favorite smart display, you can connect with colleagues to work smarter together, using features like whiteboarding, content sharing, and co-annotation.
“As a Zoom Meetings user, all you’ll need to do is log in to one of our supported smart displays and integrate your calendar, status, and meeting settings. You’ll have access to all the tools you need to personalize your home office experience.”
It’s safe to say this latest move will help further cement Zoom’s position at the head of the pack.
