Zoom 5.2.2

Originally published at: Zoom 5.2.2 - TidBITS

Videoconferencing app adds a high-fidelity audio mode and custom gallery view organization. (Free, 21.5 MB)

One wrinkle I’ve already noted (with great glee) is that the new audio feature also allows music to be transmitted without Zoom massaging and background-filtering it.

We do a live gathering every week that includes sharing two or three video segments presenting music that was live-recorded, mixed, and produced for this purpose. Sharing it works okay, but hearing the quality has been cringe-inducing.

What this feature seems to promise is that it will pass through music without treating it like noise to be suppressed (i.e. like it’s trying to suppress a user’s radio playing in the background).
