Zoom has introduced a new pronoun feature that enables users to better express their gender and be treated more respectfully on the platform. This feature will display the user’s pronoun preferences next to the user’s profile name to help others in the conference call better address them. Some common examples of pronouns are his/his/his, her/her/her, and their/their/their. Pronoun sharing is especially important for members of the LGBTQ community, especially those who live outside the gender binary. Zoom aims to help all different users express themselves correctly and respectfully through the new pronoun function.

The new pronoun feature was launched with the update of Zoom 5.7.0, and was launched after receiving feedback from educators, social organizations, diversified leaders, and various Zoom customers. After updating to the latest version, a new pronouns tab should appear on your profile page. Simply enter your preferred pronouns in the custom text field and choose how and when to share during Zoom meetings and Zoom video webinars.

Users can choose to have Zoom ask whether to share pronouns every time they participate in a webinar or meeting. There are also “always share” and “not share” options. These pronouns are displayed next to the user’s profile name to help others call them correctly. Although these shared controls are suitable for meetings and webinars, the pronouns are currently always visible on the Zoom profile card. This can be viewed in the “Contacts” tab, or by hovering over a person’s avatar in Zoom Chat.

By default, the pronoun feature of Zoom will be visible on the profile page of the free basic account and the account with a single licensed user. For Zoom accounts with multiple users, pronouns will be turned off by default. Administrators of these accounts can choose to turn on the “Pronouns” field in their account settings.
