Zoom is launching an update that brings support for Apple’s new M1 processors, the company has announced.
More specifically, the notes say this version of Zoom offers “better support” for computers with ARM CPUs. Zoom says a new, separate installer will be available for download in the Zoom Download Center; as of this writing, this installer is not yet available.
Other new features in this update include enhanced non-verbal feedback, better organization of security features, and support for text messaging.
Apple’s M1 Macs can run the current Zoom desktop client for macOS just fine, but it’ll likely be slower and a bigger energy drain than the native version for M1 processors.
Zoom has been an incredibly popular way to video chat during the COVID-19 pandemic, which makes this update pretty important for owners of new Macs.
In November, Apple launched the first Mac computers featuring its own, ARM-based silicon chip called M1. These new computers — an M1 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini — can run apps made for Intel Macs through Rosetta 2 translation, but native apps, written specifically for M1 processors, will typically run better.
