Have you ever come across a time when you were having an important Zoom meeting and has to witness disturbance due to incoming video? To help users with this, Zoom has come up with a new feature, named ‘stop incoming video’. This video allows users to block the video feeds from other participants from the meeting.
By disabling all incoming videos, you will not only be able to concentrate perfectly but also be able to preserve bandwidth if you have if you are using a restricted connection. Apart from this feature, the video conferencing app has also brought new security and audio enhancement features. Other than this, the company has come up with rich text formatting support in chat. This time Zoom has launched a new capability for Android users that let them pay for a pro subscription by using Google Play billing instead of doing it directly through Zoom.
How to Use Zoom Stop Incoming Video Option in Meetings
Android users in selected countries can purchase a monthly or annual Zoom Pro subscription in the Zoom app through the Google Play subscription service. Subscriptions are limited to 1 license and are managed through Google Play and not the Zoom Billing page in their account.
