Multi-video feed in webinars, custom domain options, and our integration with MS Outlook

Hi there,
We hope you're doing well. With your help, we have been able to release many useful features and enhancements in 2020. We, the Zoho Meeting team, would like to thank you all for the feedback, support, and encouragement you've given as we worked to scale Zoho Meeting into a fully fledged web conferencing software for remote work. Let's take a look at the previous month's product updates.

Webinar updates
Features
  • Multi-video feed: Organizers and co-organizers can now share their live video feeds to webinar attendees along with the webinar presentation.
  • Search, sort, and filter:  You can now search and sort your webinar attendee list. You can also filter the attendees who have raised their hands or have been allowed to talk in the webinar.

Enhancements
  • New notifications:  
    • If a user tries to speak while their microphone is muted, Zoho Meeting will now show a notification to remind them they're muted.
    • Attendees are notified when their question is answered in the Q&A tab.
    • Organizers and co-organizers are notified for new raised hands, and attendees are notified when the organizer lowers the raised hand.

Bug Fixes
