Zoom has rolled its new Zoom 5.0, updating to which has been made mandatory. In case you don’t do it the consequence is simple, you won’t be able to call anyone.

The reason behind this is the swarm of cases of security breaches, leaks and the “Zoombombing” that it has been getting.

After 30th May the GCM encryption will be applied to every single Zoom call. And Zoom 5.0 is required for this encryption. Along with the stringent encryption, you get several features like

Waiting Room enabled by default, Complex Meeting IDs, Passwords & Password complexity, Screen Share Watermark, etc.
