Zoom updated its eponymous videoconferencing app to version 5.4.3, adding the capability to share multiple apps during a meeting instead of just a window or screen. An extensible green border denotes shared apps, and other apps and unoccupied areas on the desktop will not be visible to viewers. The update also provided enhanced in-meeting user abuse reporting, added a new option in the Security panel to suspend all participant activities immediately, enabled users to pin a message to the top of a channel, and showed profile pictures or names for participants in non-video meetings rather than a plain screen with meeting info and options. A quick 5.4.4 update resolves high CPU use issues related to macOS 11 Big Sur. (Free, 23.0 MB, release notes, macOS 10.9+)
