Feature Request: More Colors for Annotating and Choice of a Background Color

Kennon

I use Zoom to teach online. I love the annotation capability, but there really aren't that many colors that work well. They are just hard on the eyes, or hard to see. Could you put some effort into refining the color options, OR allow us to add custom colors?

 

Also, I love sharing a "Whiteboard," but it sure would be nice to be able to pick the color of the whiteboard, because white isn't really my preference, and there isn't enough contrast available (other than glaring red).

 

Thanks!

Hello!

    Our new Zoom Whiteboard is scheduled to be released sometime this summer. I'm being told that it will support many background colors. Is there a specific color or colors you're interested in?

More on the new Whiteboard here: https://blog.zoom.us/zoom-whiteboard/

Thanks

Grid paper would be very nice.

Black would be my first idea. Choosing my own color would be ideal.

We do have the option for a black background on Zoom Room for Touch's whiteboard.

You would need to purchase a Zoom Room license and install Zoom Rooms on a touchscreen computer or computer with an external touchscreen monitor. There is a 30-day free trial if you want to try it.
