Step 1: Launching Zoom

To get started, open the Zoom application on your Mac. You can find it in your Applications folder or search for it using Spotlight.

Step 2: Accessing the Zoom Menu

Once Zoom is open, click on the Zoom menu located in the top-left corner of your screen.

Step 3: Checking for Updates

In the Zoom menu, navigate to the About Zoom option and click on it. A new window will appear with information about the current version of Zoom installed on your Mac.

Note: Automatic Updates

If you have enabled automatic updates for Zoom, your application will be updated automatically whenever a new version is available. You can check if this feature is enabled by going to About Zoom. If automatic updates are enabled, you can skip to Step 5.

Step 4: Manually Updating Zoom

If you have disabled automatic updates or want to manually check for updates, follow these steps:

  • Option 1:
    • In the About Zoom window, click on the Check for Updates button.
    • If a new version is available, follow the prompts to download and install it.
  • Option 2:
    • Visit the Zoom website at https://zoom.us/download.
    • Click on the Download button under the Zoom Client for Meetings section.
    • Once the download is complete, open the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to update Zoom.

Step 5: Verifying the Update

After updating Zoom, you can verify if the update was successful by going back to the About Zoom window. The version number should reflect the latest update available.

Step 6: Restarting Zoom

If you had Zoom open during the update process, it’s recommended to restart the application for the changes to take effect. To do this, simply close and reopen Zoom on your Mac.
