Individuals can likewise choose whether they need their pronouns to be shared in meetings and online courses. There are options in profile settings for Zoom to consistently share, never share, or to ask during each meeting if pronouns ought to be shown. This flexibility could be helpful for individuals who utilize various pronouns in different settings, however note that pronouns are as of now consistently noticeable in the profile card.
