How to Ensure Your Zoom Client is Updated and Patched

It is very important that any software you use, such as Zoom, is patched and updated to the most current version. Zoom regularly provides new versions of the Zoom desktop client and mobile app to release new features and fix bugs. 

*Note:  Auburn-owned machines that are joined to Active Directory should be patched automatically.
