Zoom Network Connectivity Test Tool

Coming from the Zoom Support Release Notes:

The network connectivity tool can be accessed by the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Windows: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D
  • macOS: ⌘ + ⌥ + ⇧ + D

Fantastic new, hidden capability we released a couple weeks ago in the 5.13.0 clients. Takes some finger gymnastics to hit, but you can use it to quickly diagnose network problems.

Some personal background, links to related projects, and other ways to connect.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
