Action Required: Zoom Software Lifecycle Policy

Zoom plans to implement a new Software Lifecycle Policy in which they will block client versions below a minimum version, and enforce a minimum version on a quarterly schedule — the first weekend of November, February, May, and August. This will take effect on November 5, 2022 for all products and services, starting with the minimum versions referenced in the below list. Users who are running an end-of-life version after November 5, will not be able to join meetings via the Zoom Client and will be prompted to update, or join from the Web browser. On that same schedule, they will announce the minimum version required across products and services for the next scheduled enforcement in order to provide three (3) months notice. However, there may be additional updates outside of this release window to address larger security or compliance features.

Please note that Zoom will be ending support for the ChromeOS client and are asking all customers to migrate to Zoom’s Progressive Web Application (PWA).

This policy will affect the following products on the following dates:
