A new update to the Zoom for iPhone and iPad app is now available for download from the App Store – and it's a biggie. The update not only brings support for new custom video filters but also offers numerous interface improvements as well.

The update's release notes don't go into too many details about what the new filters mean, or how they can be used, but it is at least a feature that's been added. It's far from the only one as well, with interface changes including the addition of support for gender pronouns in profile pages.
