Zoom on the new 2021 iPad Pro models gets Center Stage and expanded Gallery View which will help you better participate in calls, potentially stave off video fatigue, and better connect over Zoom. Center Stage is only available on Zoom v5.6.6 or later on third-generation 11-inch and fifth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021).
Apple announced Center Stage at the “Spring Loaded” 2021 online event for new 2021 iPad Pro models that automatically keep under framed when people on video calls. Center Stage uses the much larger field of view on the new front camera and the machine learning capabilities of M1 to recognize and keep users centered in the frame.
As users move around, Center Stage automatically pans to keep them in the shot. When others join in, the camera detects them too, and smoothly zooms out to fit everyone into the view and make sure they are part of the conversation.
Zoom now supports Center Stage on new iPad Pro models where you can participate more naturally in our Zoom video calls means you don’t worry about whether you’re out of frame during a workout, teaching a class, or celebrating with friends and family over Zoom. Zoom users now see the option during Zoom video call to use Center Stage on new iPad Pro models.
Zoom also update another feature for all iPad models called “Gallery View”. But Zoom on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro model can see their fellow meeting participants. While the previous iPad models can only display up to 25 video titles in Gallery View, but on 12.9-inch iPad Pro can now see up to 48 video titles in landscape mode. To do that, simply pinch the display with two fingers to zoom in or zoom out.
Note: Previous and new iPad models will get expanded Gallery View based on the display size; the ability to see 48 tiles in Gallery View is currently only available on the 12.9-inch 2021 iPad Pro.
