Teaching online Tai Chi


Hi everyone,

I teach Tai Chi online every week on my laptop.  This week zoom wouldn't open and it said i needed version 5.3.0 or later to work.  I looked at the zoom site and the latest version on there that was available seemed to be 5.111.

I am confused!  Is this the latest version (5.111?)  - and the best one to download?

I asked zoom but the answer didn't seem helpful - she said to contact my IT department but I am self employed so I am my IT department!!!  Please help, i need to get it working quickly.  I use microsoft Edge as a browser.

Luckily it did work on my phone but it's not the same as teaching on a laptop.

kind thanks, ann

Hi, @annbee,


Yes, looks like you have a very old version of Zoom, and should be updated. 

FYI, Zoom version numbers are typically in 3 parts, separated by periods. The current version (as of today, 8/13/2022) for the Windows client was released July 25, and is listed as 5.11.4.


 Updates are usually easy to do. If you have a desktop client, look for the Update item in the menu (click in your profile picture). 

More details about Zoom’s update processes can be found here:
