Video conferencing platform Zoom has announced new features to its platform that the company says makes communication more accessible.
Firstly, the platform now supports multi-pin features. These features basically allow viewers to keep multiple videos in place. This feature will be usable by host and co-host who can also grant permissions for up to nine people in the meeting to pin multiple videos.
It also offers support for multi-spotlight feature, which works similar to the multi-pin feature, except the spotlighted videos show up for everyone in the meeting. The host or co-host can spotlight up to nine videos so that everyone sees the same spotlighted videos, said the company.
Another new feature that has come to Zoom is the support for rearrangement in gallery view. Zoom gives its users an option to drag and drop videos into your own custom order.
These features come along with a handful of other accessibility-focused features on Zoom, including closed captioning and screen reader support.
Meanwhile, last month Zoom introduced the two-factor authentication (2FA) login for its users to increase security. The additional measure will require users to present two or more pieces of evidence, or credentials, that authenticate their ownership of the account.
The evidence may include a password/pin, fingerprints/voice or something the user owns like a smart card or mobile device. The 2FA seeks to protect users from security breaches right from the platform.
