This innovative feature is now available through free trials for customers in select plans*, and it includes the Zoom Meeting summary and Zoom Team Chat compose features. These tools are aimed at improving team productivity, workday balance, and effective collaboration
Smita Hashim, chief product officer at Zoom, expressed excitement about Zoom IQ’s capabilities, emphasizing its ability to boost productivity and allow more time for creative work and collaboration. Zoom adopts a federated approach to AI, incorporating its own proprietary large language AI models, models from renowned AI companies like OpenAI and Anthropic, and even select customers’ models. This flexibility ensures Zoom caters to diverse needs, providing maximum value to its customers.
Zoom Meeting Summary:
With Zoom IQ, hosts of Zoom Meetings can now create summaries using Zoom’s powerful large language models. These summaries can be shared via Zoom Team Chat and email without the need for recording the conversation. Hosts receive automated summaries, which can be shared with attendees, enabling better team collaboration and increased productivity.
Zoom Team Chat Compose:
Zoom Team Chat users can leverage the generative AI-powered compose feature, which utilizes OpenAI’s technology. This feature allows users to draft messages based on the context of a Team Chat thread. Additionally, users can modify message tone, length, and rephrase responses to customize text recommendations.
Data Control and Usage:
Zoom is committed to empowering customers with control over their data. Customers can access these features by opting into the free trials through the Zoom admin console. During this process, data-sharing options with Zoom will be selected, and customers can modify this selection at any time. It is essential to note that customer data will not be used to train third-party models.
Upcoming Zoom IQ Features:
Zoom plans to further enhance its products with additional generative AI-powered features:
1. Email Compose:
Users will receive email draft suggestions based on conversational context from previous Zoom Meetings, Zoom Phone calls, and email threads. Initially available in Zoom IQ for Sales, sales professionals can efficiently follow up with customers based on their last conversation. Email compose will be generally available in the coming weeks.
2. Zoom Team Chat Thread Summaries:
Users can catch up on Team Chat messages effortlessly with the click of a button. This feature is expected to be available in the coming months.
3. Meeting Queries:
Latecomers to Zoom Meetings can discreetly submit queries via the in-meeting chat to receive generative AI-created summaries of what they missed. The meeting queries feature is expected to be generally available in the coming months.
4. Whiteboard Draft:
Teams can generate initial ideas quickly using text prompts, avoiding the “cold start” problem in brainstorming sessions. The whiteboard draft feature is expected to be generally available in the coming months.
5. Whiteboard Synthesize:
