Zoom Focusing on Fixing Existing Features Instead of Releasing New Ones

Zoom has been extensively criticized over the past couple of weeks for horrible security, a poorly designed screen-sharing characteristic, misleading dark patterns, faux end-to-end-encryption claims and incomplete privacy policy. Regardless of that, the video conferencing service has attracted a ton of new customers because of the coronavirus lockdowns around the globe — the company reached 200 million daily active users in March.

Zoom Focusing on Fixing Existing Features Instead of Releasing New Ones

Zoom, an enterprise product meant for boring company conferences, has become a mainstream product with all the risks that it entails.

That’s why the company’s chief executive Eric S. Yuan has written a long blog post to address a few of the concerns around Zoom. He begins by sharing some metrics. Zoom has been utilized by 90,000 schools around 20 nations. Daily conference participants jumped from 10 million in December to 200 million in March.

However, some corporations are beginning to reconsider using Zoom for video conferences. For instance, SpaceX, Elon Musk’s rocket firm, has banned its employees from utilizing the service.

For the next 90 days, Zoom is enacting a feature freeze, which signifies that the company isn’t going to ship any new feature until it’s done fixing the present feature set.
