However, Anthropic’s Claude, capable of reading an entire novel in less than a minute, significantly outpaces Zoom IQ. While specifics about Claude’s integration into areas like Team Chat, Meetings, Phone, Whiteboard, and Zoom IQ are yet to be revealed, the company plans to harness Claude’s impressive capabilities to strengthen its competitiveness against other AI-empowered productivity apps.
