With this feature, the company ends the suffering that users have long complained about; because they sometimes have to update the software themselves before their meetings; This makes them vulnerable to delay or embarrassment.
Updates not only provide new features and functionality, but are also used to correct software errors and other vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit to launch cyber attacks and infect your devices with malware.
“Updates are essential in the tech industry, so when there are exciting new features, a software bug or a security vulnerability that needs to be resolved, we release updates to the Zoom customer,” the company said on its blog.
“Sometimes this update doesn’t get to everyone – many people get busy and forget to update their apps, so we’re excited to announce the launch of an automatic update feature designed to simplify this process and help make security second nature.”
To turn on this feature, you can go to Settings, click on the General icon, and tick the “Zoom auto-update” option.
The automatic update option also allows two modes of update, the first is Slow, which is the default to provide you with fewer updates and focuses on maximizing the stability of the program, and the second is Fast and provides users with updates as soon as they become available.
According to the company, AutoUpdate periodically checks the Zoom servers to determine if a new update is available, and then provides it to customers.
Zoom stated that the automatic update feature is currently available to Zoom customers who use (desktop) computers with the “Windows” or “Mac OS” operating system, while the Linux system is not currently supported with this feature.
