There used to be an option to automatically close the browser tab that is automatically launched when joining a Zoom meeting after a few seconds. Now, the tab just stays open indefinitely and you have to close it manually, which is extremely annoying when spending a full day in back to back meetings. I haven't been able to find any settings to turn the auto-close back on - is this still an option?

There is a task with the product team to allow this to auto-close. The product team is reviewing the request as we speak and will determine if this is something that they plan to implement into the product moving forward.

It is extremely frustrating to have multiple browser windows that dont auto close. I have to hunt multiple windows and close them every few hours after multiple meetings. Pls fix this ASAP.

Its been about 4 months since zoom said it was working on this feature. Any update?

Third parties have taken on this problem and done good work on it. I installed a chrome extension and am pleased with the result: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/zoom-closer/appjbedfhcmpknanmbndpojcllfaemal?hl=en

I do not think that this is going to change back. I personally use the chrome extension that @Gabeyd mentioned above. If I hear anything about this changing I will surely let you all know.

It's not zoom native but I've been using Tab Close Gold which auto closes my zoom tabs for me after 3-5 seconds. It's available for Chrome and Firefox.

Hello, following up on this, has this feature been implemented and if not, what is the plan?
2023-04-07 04:38 PM
No, I have not seen or heard anything new about whether we are going to change this in a future release.

You keep reporting you haven't heard anything, but don't say if you are actively communicating this request or pushing for it. Then keep mentioning to click on the accepted solution. Does it mean this forum is just a waste of time? Is Zoom that big that a request to implement a timer to autoclose can't be done after almost one year? Just examine how the browser extensions are doing it!
