If you use Zoom to your Mac M1 for virtual vacation dating, you’ll be happy to hear that an upgrade is coming in a timely manner. 9to5Mac at learned this Zoom is deployment a December 21 update that allows the video calling app to natively support Apple Silicon Macs. You might need to get a separate installer, but you’ll probably want to jump on it if you’d rather not run Zoom using code translation.
The non-native application was not a huge loss on the M1 Macs. A MacRumors forum member found that battery life dropped only 17% during a 2.5 hour video call. Native code could, however, further improve longevity and improve overall performance if you run Zoom together with other applications.
