With the most recent update to Zoom, you are able to enable Immersive View. Though new to Zoom, this feature has been widely used by Microsoft Teams users. If you've watched the NBA or WWE during the pandemic, you have seen virtual crowds. Immersive View provides a similar experience. What it does is allow you to see your meeting attendees in scenes such as an auditorium or as pictures in an art gallery, just to name a few. Take a look at the gif below to see what it can look like in Zoom.
Get started by opening your Zoom Desktop Client (Mac or PC). Click your profile picture in the top right corner. In the dropdown menu that appears, click Check for Updates. Follow the steps and update the Client to the most recent version.
