Zoom, a video conferencing company, held the user conference Zoomtopia 2021 for two days from the 13th to the 14th of 2021. A partnership between Zoom and Facebook was announced. According to this, some features of Zoom can be used in the virtual meeting room provided by Facebook.
Facebook’s Oculus is announcing Horizon Workrooms, a virtual conference room to make remote collaboration even easier. Horizon Workroom is a virtual whiteboard that anyone can easily use to write something on it, share ideas and brainstorm. The content written on the whiteboard can be printed out as an image at any time. The keyboard in the real world is linked to the keyboard in the Horizon Workroom, and hand work during meetings is communicated to other users.
Facebook and Zoom have partnered to announce the integration of Zoom with Horizon Workroom. It’s simple to use and only accesses the existing Zoom from within the Horizon Workroom. This will make the Zoom Whiteboard feature available in Horizon Workroom.
In fact, you’ll be able to access the Zoom Whiteboard from the Horizon Workroom, allowing you to collaborate with other users on the Zoom Whiteboard without having to enter the Horizon Workroom. In addition, the Zoom Whiteboard will be available in Horizon Workroom after 2022, and will be available in Oculus Quest 2.
Additionally, Zoom said it will support real-time translation in up to 12 languages by the end of 2022 for paid accounts. On the other hand, for free accounts, it said that it would release the English text function until February 2021, but it was postponed until the end of 2022 and announced that it would expand the number of languages up to 30. In addition, real-time translation and text enhancements are attributed to machine learning-related technology owned by Kites, which Zoom acquired in June 2021. Related information can be found here.
