Zoom update 5.0.0 — required update by May 30

Update your Zoom desktop client by May 30

One of the new enhancements in the latest version of Zoom, version 5.0.0, requires all users to update their desktop client by May 30. I encourage all UCLA users to review Zoom’s summary of the latest updates, as well as UCLA’s latest guidance for using Zoom, and to update your desktop client today.

Simple instructions for checking whether you have the latest version and easily updating your software can be found in Step 2 on our Zoom Security Settings information page.

If you encounter any issues, please email the IT Support Center at help@it.ucla.edu. Faculty and staff can also contact their department's local IT team, and students can contact help@it.ucla.edu or 310-267-4357 (7HELP).
