Zoom video calls are a cornerstone of many businesses’ daily operations. It serves as a platform for collaboration, project management, information exchange, etc. Therefore, taking notes during Zoom calls is often essential. This new feature will make it much easier.
last week, Zoom announced “Notes,” which refers to a new workspace available in Zoom Meetings where users can take notes before, during, and after meetings.
Until now, to take notes during Zoom meetings, users typically relied on external platforms like Google Docs or Microsoft Word to create a collaborative document. With the Notes feature, users will no longer need to switch between their meeting and their notes. Alternatively, they will be able to do so as part of a video call.
Open previously created notes or create new notes from the navigation bar within the meeting
During the meeting, users will be able to open previously created notes or create new notes from the navigation bar within the meeting. They can then launch a sharing session during which the entire team can collaborate in real time during the meeting.
The notes function will also be useful for preparing for meetings. Users can create a note with the agenda before the meeting and share it with their colleagues. After the meeting, the note can be added and shared with anyone who needs the content.
“We wanted to deliver a clean user experience that allows for creating calendars and notes while staying within the Zoom platform rather than switching to other content management tools,” said Darren Brown, head of productivity apps at Zoom.
For all users at no additional cost
Zoom Notes’ interface is similar to that of other note-taking apps, with an editor that allows users to organize their documents with fonts, styles, bullets, images, links, and more again, according to the press release.
The best thing about the Notes app is that it will be available to all users at no additional cost. The feature is scheduled to begin rolling out to users in the coming weeks.
Other business productivity platforms, such as Otter.ai, Slack, and Google Workspace, have recently overhauled their offerings to allow professionals to collaborate. However, most of the time, all of these features leverage generative AI. It’s refreshing to see that Zoom is implementing a useful tool that doesn’t rely on AI, because it circumvents the risks of a production AI tool accessing confidential meetings and data and then using that data for further training.
