Zoom Video Communications: Improved User Interface for Zoom Rooms Devices


An improved user interface for Zoom Rooms devices

A reliable and consistent experience is the hallmark of an enterprise-grade communication solution. To help provide our customers with a more consistent experience, we’ve redesigned the user interface of our Zoom Rooms solution. The new user interface aligns with Zoom’s desktop and mobile client, matches Zoom’s current branding, and also provides an optimized information architecture to better meet user needs.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new Zoom Rooms UI:

Introducing the new Zoom Rooms UI

While our first release of Zoom Rooms targeted conference rooms, we’ve expanded Zoom Rooms to support a growing set of devices – small, medium, large screens, landscape and portrait orientation. Zoom has redesigned the Zoom Rooms user interface for Touch and Zoom Rooms Controller devices. This new user interface, built on a scalable framework, will allow us to deliver the same consistent experience across a range of devices while giving our customers faster access to Zoom innovations.


The new Zoom Rooms UI more closely matches the layout of our desktop client. With features such as start a scheduled meeting, make a phone call, call a contact, share content from your device, start an instant meeting and more available at the click of a button, the new Zoom Rooms user interface promises a a consistent meeting experience.

With this new design, the look and feel of Zoom Rooms devices for touch devices and Zoom Rooms Controller has been updated. You should expect to see some changes to how you access certain features, so we have a new user guide to walk you through the new experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

When did the new Zoom Rooms UI roll out?

We began updating the Zoom Rooms UI in Summer 2021 with an update to the Zoom Rooms for Touch UI. The Zoom Rooms Controller UI was updated on iOS and Android Zoom Rooms Controllers in December 2021 with the release of Zoom Rooms version 5.10.0 along with other Zoom Rooms updates.

The new UI is currently available on all Zoom Rooms for Touch devices with version 5.7.0 and above, while the new UI for Zoom Rooms Controllers is available on iOS and Android Zoom Rooms Controllers with version 5.9. 0 and above. Updates to in-meeting controls or Zoom Room Controllers, including out-of-meeting controls for Zoom Room Controllers for Windows and web browsers, are available with version 5.10 and later.

Can I switch between the old and the new user interface?

Zoom Rooms on the latest version of the Zoom client will have the new UI, and users will not be able to switch between the new and old UI. However, our new interface offers a streamlined and simplified layout similar to our desktop client, providing an easy to navigate experience.
