If you use the program frequently, make sure you're running the most recent version on your computer to avoid any problems. You will only be requested to update the app the next time you use it if you ignore this optional update message.

1. How to Update Zoom on Desktop

Zoom updates itself automatically on Windows and Mac. Automatic updates are enabled by just turning on a one-time setting. If you're experiencing trouble updating, you can manually force an update within the app or download the most recent app file from the Zoom website.

Zoom does not offer an automatic update option on a Linux computer. You'll have to rely on manual means of updating.

a) How to Update Zoom Automatically (Windows and Mac)

Enable a one-time option in the app to make Zoom automatically download and install app updates. Ensure you have administrator privileges on your computer because you'll need them to turn the option on.

Begin by launching the Zoom application on your PC. Then click your profile symbol in Zoom's top-right corner.

In the right-hand box, select the Automatically Keep Zoom Up-to-Date option and press Apply. In the event that you are presented with a prompt from a system administrator, you must select yes.

A drop-down menu appears next to the "Automatically Keep Zoom Up to Date" option, allowing you to choose how often you want to receive Zoom updates.

The following are the choices:

Slow: Zoom will receive fewer updates if you choose this option, but your app experience will be more stable.

Fast: This choice will provide you with more regular updates, but it may compromise the app's stability.

To save your changes, close the "Settings" window.

b) How to Update Zoom Manually

Force Zoom to look for and install fresh updates if you're on Linux or if it doesn't appear to be updated automatically on your Windows or Mac systems.

To begin, start by opening Zoom on your computer. Then click your profile symbol in Zoom's top-right corner.

A "Zoom Update" window will appear. Zoom will check for any available updates automatically. If a new version of the software is available, it will be downloaded and installed. If no updates are available, a notice reading "You are up to date" will appear.

You can close the Zoom Update window if all of the updates have been installed or if there are no more updates available by using the Close button.

And Zoom on your computer is now up to date. With the latest app version, you may now attend Zoom meetings.

c) How to Download and Update Zoom

If Zoom won't open on your computer or update using the in-app options, download the most recent Zoom app from the company's website and install it on your computer. This will ensure that you have the most recent version of Zoom.

To do so, open your computer's web browser and go to the Zoom Download Center website.

Click the large "Download" button on the website. This will install the Zoom application on your PC.

The corporation publishes fresh updates regularly to resolve vulnerabilities and flaws, but many users neglect to do so, leaving them open to cyber attacks. As a result, you must update your Zoom regularly using this approach.
