The whiteboard of the video conferencing platform also received improvements. Until the end of this year, Zoom plans to release a beta version that allows users to add notes, drawings and comments to their whiteboards whenever they want, that is, during the meeting online or offline. In other words, the whiteboards created during online meetings will also be available in offline mode.

The Facebook Zoom Meetings and Horizon Workrooms integration is scheduled for the first half of next year and will allow users to better collaborate in virtual reality.

This is possible by creating a whiteboard in the Zoom Whiteboard panel and using the Oculus remote control to write on a desk or physical walls or change tools on that whiteboard.
