Zoom Waiting Room Messaging feature

Zoom’s Waiting Room feature is an excellent privacy tool. It lets you see who is coming into your meeting before you admit them.

Because Zoom adds new features on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to check for updates often (every week or two). The enhancement of the Waiting Room was added in one of those updates.

The Waiting Room includes a Messaging Feature. This allows the host to send a note to those in the Waiting Room before they enter.

This can be especially useful if you’re using the same Zoom meeting for office hours, or for back-to-back meetings. You can tell your Waiting Room occupants that you’re there, and you’ll be with them soon.

Here’s a short Minute to Learn It Video showing how it works.
