Zoom, the Californian videoconferencing specialist, announced Monday, September 13 at its Zoomtopia 2021 event that it will expand its transcription functionality with live machine translation in twelve languages. The option, which is to be rolled out in 2022, will only be available for paid accounts, mainly businesses. The company did not specify which languages would be available, or which technologies allowed it to offer this functionality. Note, however, that in June 2021, Zoom got its hands on Kites, a German company specializing in the field. The goal, explains Zoom, is to overcome language barriers that can hinder live exchanges and collaboration, aspects that are particularly important for the professional world.
Zoom also announced that its Zoom Whiteboard feature, a digital “board” for meeting collaboration, will be available as a product in its own right, and not just as part of its video conferencing application. The product will also be integrated into the new Horizons Workrooms solution from Oculus, a Facebook subsidiary dedicated to virtual reality.
Zoom, a multiplatform instant messaging and videoconferencing service, primarily geared towards professionals, but offering a free version limited to 40 minutes and 100 people that individuals can use.
