With the surge in demand during the epidemic, many video software have undergone substantial feature updates in the past year. As for the ideas that can be used to improve the experience, many competing products will learn from each other, such as custom backgrounds, which have now become the standard configuration of almost every office video app.That being the case, it’s not surprising that Zoom’s new immersive perspective looks familiar. This feature that can put up to 25 people in the same virtual background is actually the same as the one previously launched by Microsoft Teams. Together The pattern is very similar. Zoom believes that the experience of new features can easily remind users of the feeling of being in a classroom or conference room. If Microsoft introduces Together, this will help reduce the “video fatigue” in the era of remote work.

When using the immersive perspective, users can choose to upload their own virtual background or directly open the preset options of Zoom. If there are more than 25 people participating in the video, the extra people will be displayed in abbreviated form, and the host can arrange the location of the participants and adjust their size on the screen. However, it should be noted that when recording is required, the immersive perspective will be automatically switched back to a more conventional display mode. Whether it will be displayed side by side or the person speaking first depends on which option you originally selected.
