The 'newer and better' version of the Zoom app will be available for use this week

Popular video conferencing application Zoom has said it will release a new and improved version of its app this week.
The announcement comes at a time when the company's efforts to protect data and consumer privacy have come under fire.

The company says that version 5.0 of Zoom will have better encryption features to prevent "zoom bombing" - meaning unwanted people from entering a video conference.

The corona virus has caused a worldwide lockdown and millions of people are using the platform to communicate with their loved ones at work.

"We will win the trust of our customers and delight them with our unwavering focus on providing them with the safest platform," Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said in a statement.

Couples in New York will now be able to have a 'virtual wedding' at Zoom

Zoom has been heavily criticized for a number of privacy issues, including sending user data to Facebook, false claims of user-to-user encryption, and allowing meeting hosts to track participants.

One of the most important features of the app is the 'zoom bombing' in which uninvited guests enter meetings. As a result, many companies, schools, and governments have stopped using the platform.

The UK is debating whether the government should use the zoom for a cabinet meeting, as Boris Johnson tweeted a photo a few days ago with the ID number of the latest meeting.

There are also reports that Elon Musk has banned the use of Zoom for meetings at his company SpaceX.

NASA, one of SpaceX's biggest customers, has also stopped its employees from using it.

Singapore, meanwhile, has banned teachers from using Zoom after an "extremely serious incident" during an online class.

Earlier this month, Zoom said it would work on privacy and security issues before working on any new features.

The head of the company has apologized for "failing" to address security issues and promised to address those concerns. He also said that the use of Zoom during the Corona virus epidemic has increased in a way he never imagined.

The number of Zoom's daily subscribers has grown from 10 million to 200 million in less than three months.

Meanwhile, New York's attorney general has written to the company questioning its ability to deal with the growing number of customers.

New York Attorney General Leticia James has asked Zoom if he has reconsidered his security measures following his rise in popularity. He also pointed out that in the past this app has been very slow in solving problems.

"The Zoom takes the privacy, security and trust of its customers very seriously," the company said in a statement requesting comment from the BBC.
