Zoom told The Register it was “reviewing this” on February 10. 9to5Mac later found an official acknowledgment of this issue (along with the latest claim that it was fixed in a Mac app update) posted on Zoom’s community forums. the morning of February 11.

“We encountered a bug related to the Zoom client for macOS, which could show that the orange light kept appearing after leaving a meeting, call or webinar,” said a Zoom community champion known as “Bitcoin_Shaman”. “This bug has been fixed in the Zoom client for macOS version 5.9.3 and we recommend updating to version 5.9.3 to apply the fix.”
