For all devices worldwide, Zoom is now rolling out end-to – end encryption. For all users to try to provide input, the feature will be accessible as a technical preview for 30 days.

Turning on this feature can disable a few Zoom functions, including host pre-join, cloud recording, streaming, live transcription, Breakout Rooms, polling, 1:1 private chat, and meeting reactions.
