Upcoming Required Zoom App Updates

Important changes are on the horizon for Zoom at Pepperdine. Starting November 18, students, faculty, and staff will be prompted to make regular updates to the Zoom desktop and mobile apps if they are using their Pepperdine licensed Zoom account. These updates ensure an appropriate level of security and functionality across the institution.

University-owned computers set up with automatic updates through Pepperdine IT's Device Management will be updated prior to the requirement. These required updates will not affect external audiences joining Pepperdine Zoom meetings or community members using the 2PEP (Online 2U) Zoom service.

As part of the required updates, community members will also gain access to a new pronoun field within Zoom. This allows all community members to input their preferred pronouns or change them whenever needed. To input pronouns, make sure the Zoom app is updated to version 5.7.0 or later.
