Prevent automatic updates just when joining a meeting


Very often when I click a join zoom link the client hasn't been open before and then decides that it would be a great time to perform an update.


This has already lead to me being late on several meetings. 


This is inacceptable. Please prevent updates from delaying calls.

Hello. Zoom app has an automatic update feature that you can turn off. Here are the steps and a screenshot. 

  • Open the Zoom app
  • Sign in
  • Click Setting by going to your profile picture in the top right. 
  • On the General setting on the left, look for Zoom Updates. You can uncheck the box. 

Zoom updates usually add significant features and enhancements. If you turn this off, I would manually check for updates during a non-meeting time. Maybe check once a week.  I hope this helps. Thank you. 

That’s exactly my point. I don’t want to turn off automatic updates. I just want them to not interfere with my meetings.
