How to update Zoom

To keep your virtual meetings running smoothly and to get a stable overall experience from Zoom, you should keep the Zoom app up to date on all your devices. We will show you how to do just that.

Note: If your device is managed by an IT team in your organization, you may need to contact them to update Zoom.

Refresh the zoom on the desktop

On Windows and Mac, Zoom updates automatically. You just have to activate a one-time setting and enable automatic updates. If you’re having trouble updating, however, you can still force a manual update from within the app or download the latest app file from the Zoom site.

On a Linux machine, you don’t have the auto-update option in Zoom. You will have to rely on manual update methods.

Update Zoom automatically (Windows and Mac)

To have Zoom automatically download and install app updates, enable a one-time option in the app as follows. Make sure you have administrator rights on your computer, as you will need them to activate the option.

Start by opening the Zoom app on your computer. Then, in the top right corner of Zoom, click your profile icon.

How to update Zoom

In the profile menu, click “Settings”.

Click "Settings" in the profile menu.

In the “Settings” window, from the left sidebar, select “General”.

Click "General" in the "Settings" window.

In the right pane, activate the option “Automatically keep zoom updated”. You may get an admin prompt, where you need to select yes.

Enable the option "Automatically keep zoom updated".

Next to the “Automatically keep zoom updated” option, you have a drop-down menu that allows you to select how often you want to receive Zoom updates.

The available options are:

  • Slow : If you select this option, Zoom will receive fewer updates but the app experience will be more stable.
  • Rapid – This option will provide you with more frequent updates, but at a possible cost of app stability.

Select "Slow" or "Fast".

Save your settings by closing the “Settings” window.

Update Zoom manually (Windows, Mac and Linux)

If you’re on Linux or if Zoom doesn’t seem to automatically update on your Windows or Mac computer, force the app to check and install new updates.

To do this, first open Zoom on your computer. Then, in the top right corner of Zoom, click your profile icon.

In the menu that opens, click on “Check for updates”.

Click "Check for Updates" in the Zoom profile menu.

You will see a “Zoom Update” window. Here, Zoom will automatically check for any available updates. If an update is available, it will be installed. If no updates are available, you will see a message stating “You are up to date”.

When updates are installed, or if no updates are available, close the “Zoom Update” window by clicking “Close”.

Get Zoom updates on your desktop.

And Zoom is now up to date on your computer. You can now join your Zoom meetings with this latest version of the app.

Download and Update Zoom (Windows, Mac and Linux)

In case you encounter an issue where Zoom won’t open on your computer or update using in-app options, download the latest Zoom app from its site and install it on your computer. This way, you will have the latest version of Zoom.

To do this, open a web browser on your computer and access the Zoom Download Center site.

On the site, click the large “Download” button. This downloads the Zoom app to your computer.

Click "Download" to download Zoom.

Once the app is downloaded, open the folder where you saved it and double-click the app file.

Run the downloaded Zoom file.

Install the app as usual, and when done, you’ll run the latest version of Zoom. Have a good time!
