If you are missing tools a colleague has, for example, the reactions option was added in release 4.5. This could be due to;
- Your Role in a Zoom session, you will have a different view as a participant than host.
- Your personal zoom settings in the UniSA Zoom Portal.
- The meeting settings in the UniSA Zoom Portal.
- The Zoom App installed on your device is an older version.
To check which version of the Zoom App is installed and update it
- Open the Zoom App
- Click on your User Icon in the top right corner
- In the Menu below Help open About Zoom or Check for Updates
Note: You may need to uninstall existing versions of the Zoom App.
