Zoom te permite cambiar tu nombre y agregar una foto de perfil que aparecer谩 si tu c谩mara est谩 apagada.

Bucear por los botones de silenciar el audio y la c谩mara tan pronto como ingresa a una reuni贸n puede volverse obsoleto. Evite que sus compa帽eros de trabajo vean la cabecera de su cama o escuchen los chillidos de su gato desactiv谩ndolos de forma predeterminada. Para hacerlo, seleccione Configuraci贸n > Audio > Silenciar micr贸fono al unirse a una reuni贸n, y luego Configuraci贸n > Video > Desactivar mi video al unirme a una reuni贸n.

6. Silenciar y cancelar el silencio con la barra espaciadora

7. Turn on the beauty filter

At this point, if you know all of the聽work-from-home advice聽about getting dressed and ready like it’s a regular workday, but still don’t think you’re looking your best, Zoom’s Touch Up My Appearance feature may be for you. The filter aims to smooth over your appearance, making you look dewy and well-rested. If you’ve ever used beauty mode on your phone’s selfie camera, you know what you’re getting.

To turn it on, click the聽up arrow聽next to Start Video. Click聽Video Settings, and under My Video, check the box for聽Touch Up My Appearance.聽

8. Set up a waiting room for added privacy

You’ve probably heard about Zoombombing — when uninvited guests crash your Zoom meeting and disrupt it. One way to help prevent this from happening is by enabling the Waiting Room feature, so you can see who’s attempting to join the meeting before allowing them access. To do so, go to聽Account Management聽>聽Account Settings. Click on聽Meeting, then click聽Waiting Room聽to enable the setting. (We’ve got more tips on how to prevent Zoombombing in your meetings here.)

9. Create Zoom breakout rooms for smaller group discussion

Split your big Zoom meeting into up to 50 separate smaller sessions with breakout rooms. The meeting host can choose to split meeting participants into separate sessions automatically or manually, or can let participants select and enter any breakout session they like. The host can switch between sessions at any point.聽

To start a breakout room as the host, go to Account Management > Account Settings. Under the Meeting tab, go to Breakout Room, and make sure the setting is toggled on. You’ll also see the option to allow meeting hosts to preassign participants to breakout rooms. (If the Breakout Room option is grayed out, that means it’s been locked and you need to contact your Zoom administrator.)

10. Share your screen

Share your screen for a Zoom meeting (or to watch a movie or play a game) with other participants by clicking the聽Share screen icon聽on the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting screen. You’ll have the option to share your entire desktop, or just one of the windows you have open. Click the red聽Stop Share聽button at the top of the screen to go back to being a normal participant in the meeting.聽

11. React with emoji onscreen聽

zoom-features-new

Zoom added a larger set of emoji reactions in an April update.


Zoom

If you’re muted in a meeting, you can still let the hosts know your thoughts with emoji reactions. Send a thumbs-up or a clapping emoji to communicate without interrupting the meeting (by default, those reactions have a yellow skin tone, but you can customize that in the Zoom desktop app). In April, Zoom added about 40 emoji reactions, instead of the six previously available.聽

To react during a meeting, click the Reactions tab at the bottom of the meeting screen (it’s in the same panel as mute audio and video, to the right) and choose the one you want. The emoji will disappear after 5 seconds.聽

If the meeting organizer enables the nonverbal feedback feature, participants can place an icon such as a raised hand next to their name to communicate. Every participant will be able to see each other’s feedback.聽

12. Learn handy keyboard shortcuts

For those who don’t like clicking around their screen, Zoom has a ton of helpful keyboard shortcuts to help you navigate the app on your desktop without using your mouse.You can find commands to join a meeting, start or stop recording, enter full screen and share your screen (more on that below). Check out Zoom’s full list of hot keys and keyboard shortcuts.聽

13. Turn on gallery view

Gallery view lets you see everyone in the meeting at once, instead of just the person speaking. To turn that on, click the tab that says Gallery View in the top right corner. If the meeting has 49 or fewer attendees, you’ll see all of their screens displayed on one page. If there are more, you’ll have the option to move between multiple pages. Change it back by clicking Speaker View in that same top right corner.聽

14. Put yourself in the same virtual background as your coworkers with immersive view

Try out Zoom’s immersive view feature to put yourself in the same virtual space as your fellow meeting participants.


Zoom

Zoom’s聽immersive view feature lets you put yourself in the same virtual background as your fellow video chat participants — be it a conference room, classroom or anywhere else you can think of. If you’re the meeting or webinar host, start the Zoom meeting on your desktop (it will be enabled by default for all free and single pro accounts using Zoom 5.6.3 or higher). In the top right corner, where you find Speaker or Gallery View, you’ll see the option to enable Immersive View. Click聽Immersive View, and choose from one of Zoom’s provided scenes, or upload your own.

Your meeting participants or webinar hosts will now be placed in the same virtual background and will appear that way on every participant’s screen.

15. Hide nonvideo participants

On a larger call, your screen can get cluttered with participants, which can be distracting, especially if some don’t have their cameras on. Hide the participants who aren’t using video by going to Settings > Video > Meetings, and check Hide nonvideo participants. Now you’ll only be distracted by your co-workers’ pets and children who appear on video.聽

16. Use the vanishing pen to highlight without having to go back and erase

Zoom’s vanishing pen feature lets you highlight text as you share your screen.聽


Zoom

Zoom’s vanishing pen feature lets you draw on your shared screen to call attention to text or objects, but then fades away so you don’t have to go back and erase your markings. To use it, share your screen, and click Annotate. On the menu that pops up, click Vanishing Pen.聽

17. Record the meeting to your computer

Both free and paid Zoom subscribers can record their meeting to their laptop or computer using the desktop app (you can’t record on mobile at the moment, unless you have a paid account — keep reading for more on that). Those recorded files can then be uploaded to a file storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox, or a video streaming service such as YouTube or Vimeo.聽

To enable local recording, go to Settings > Recording, and toggle it on. When you’re hosting a Zoom meeting, click the Record icon on the bottom toolbar.聽

18. Record a meeting to the cloud

If you have one of Zoom’s paid plans (which start at $149.90 for the year), you can make a recording that will save directly to the cloud (or to your computer if you prefer). Tap the record button on the bottom toolbar, and you’ll have the option to make it either local or in the cloud. You can do this on either desktop or mobile.聽

19. Host a group meeting longer than 40 minutes

On Zoom’s free basic tier, group meetings can only last up to 40 minutes (though one-on-one meetings are unlimited in time). To get unlimited group time, upgrade to a paid account.聽

20. Host more than 100 people聽

If you have a group of more than 100 people to host for work or school, you have to upgrade to a paid professional account. If you upgrade to the highest tier (Enterprise Plus), you can host up to 1,000 participants.
