Minimum Zoom Client Version Requirement

Beginning 12:00 am, Sunday, August 8, 2021, Technology Services will begin the regular requirement of a minimum Zoom client version.

After this time, Zoom clients that do not meet the minimum version requirements will not allow you to log in. This change does not impact those using only a web browser to connect to Zoom.

The minimum version requirements will ensure that Zoom users are not susceptible to known security vulnerabilities. Additionally, it will better align the features and functionality that can be used during Zoom meetings/webinars.

Required Minimum Version

The new required minimum version will be 5.7.0 (released June 21) for the following clients:

  • Zoom for Windows
  • Zoom for macOS
  • Zoom for Linux
  • Zoom for Mobile on iOS and Android devices

Zoom clients on Chrome OS will be required to use version 5.0.1(4287.0524) (released May 25).
