Zoom AI Companion, the generative AI tool offered by Zoom, is set to expand its capabilities this fall, providing even more value for customers who use the popular video call platform. The exciting news is that this additional functionality will come at no extra cost for those who already pay for the video-meeting service.
One of the key updates is the integration of Zoom AI Companion across different features within the platform. Users can expect to find the AI tool assisting them in Team Chat, Meetings, Phone, Email, Whiteboard, and other upcoming features. This means that no matter the context, Zoom AI Companion will be there to enhance the user experience.
Among the newly added capabilities is the ability to catch up on missed Zoom meetings. By using the side panel, users can ask questions and receive recordings with highlights and meeting summaries, ensuring they stay up to date with important discussions. This feature is particularly useful for those who may have missed certain parts of a meeting but still want to stay informed.
Looking ahead, Zoom AI Companion has plans to offer even more benefits. In the future, the AI tool will provide real-time feedback on meeting performance, offering coaching on conversational skills and presenting techniques. This invaluable feature will undoubtedly be incredibly helpful for users who are looking to improve their communication skills in a professional setting.
Additionally, Zoom AI Companion will now provide generative AI summarization for Team Chat, enabling users to quickly get an overview of the discussions and key points. The AI tool will also have the capability to auto-complete sentences, making communication even smoother and more efficient. Furthermore, Zoom users will soon be able to schedule meetings directly from a chat, streamlining the planning process.
It’s worth noting that the AI Companion feature is not enabled by default, and users will have to enable it themselves. This ensures that users have full control over their experience with the AI tool. Furthermore, Zoom has emphasized that customer audio, video, and other materials are not used to train the AI, addressing potential privacy concerns.
To power the AI feature, Zoom is utilizing its own extensive language models as well as tapping into the resources of Meta’s Llama 2, OpenAI, and Anthropic. By leveraging these advanced technologies, Zoom is able to provide users with a robust and efficient AI tool that enhances their video call experience.
With these updates, Zoom AI Companion continues to evolve and prove its value to Zoom customers. As the AI tool expands its capabilities, users can look forward to a more streamlined and personalized video call experience that helps them stay connected and engaged.
