As more travel agents and businesses tap livestreaming sessions for increased user engagement in a growing digital world, Zoom has introduced Facebook livestreaming for meetings or webinars.

An example is Nam Ho Travel, which has already run several live sessions, such as in conjunction with its subsidiary e-commerce platform Buy Beyond Borders, which offers overseas goods and other essential travel-related products.

Now with Zoom's new function, followers watching on Facebook will be able to see the same content hosted in webinars, and leave comments as well.

Recent updates also include enhancements to key features for better attendee engagement and management.

To build on branding for instance, businesses using zoom can now tap on Zoom's expanded watermark settings, which allows the customising of logo size and placement before the meeting or webinar begins.

To increase active participation and interaction, hosts now have more options when it comes to polls: think short and long answers, ranked responses, matching, and fill in the blanks. This also serves to gather feedback and insights.

Hosts and moderators can also now turn chats on and off at any time, and opt for closed captioning API using third-party support.

Zoom's Video Webinars function currently allows up to 100 interactive video panelists & 50,000 view-only attendees, including November's update to support live-streaming meetings or webinars on Facebook, YouTube, or custom integrations.
