Zoom has launched a generative AI-powered digital assistant, which will be included in its paid subscriptions at no extra cost.

Zoom AI Companion will be accessible across the Zoom platform, whether in meetings, chat, phone, email or whiteboard.

Users can interact directly with AI Companion through a side panel in the Meetings experience. These capabilities will grow across Zoom next year.
